EAE Business School has quite good rating according to student reviews on EDUopinions. What is more, EAE has been receiving international accreditations, national recognitions, and positive feedback from its graduates.
EAE Business School is located in Barcelona (Spain).
If you want to apply to EAE Business School, you will need:
EAE Business School offers accreditations by the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos for programmes in Madrid, and by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya for programmes in Barcelona.
EAE tuition fees can differ based on the degree level and study mode. In general, for example, a full-time master’s degree costs between €13.500 and €18.000, a bachelor’s degree costs around €7.500, and a full-time MBA costs around €27.500.
The program itself is good, I like the way the subjects are structured I found most of them really need important and useful.
The classes are 2 hours long with no pauses during them which I found horrible because after 1 hour you need a 10 min break to recompose yourself and be able to focus again .
The teachers are professional and clearly understand what they are teaching.
The buildings are modern and new.
I like the technical classes because I can learn lots of skills and the professors here are so nice and responsible. Due to the pandemic, all sessions were recorded, so if we are not clear about some knowledge, we can redo it from campus.View more
The program offered a variety of classes that covers all the different aspects of a business case: finance, economics, marketing, supply chain, etc. My favourite part was interacting with the diverse class of 27 countries. The different opinions made the courses so interesting and appealing to learn.View more
Great program, instructors are very professional, the staff is very friendly with very proper communication with students. Schedules are very good. Instructors are very friendly and have the needed expertise.View more
Really bad decision of joining EAE business school worst education experience ever they don’t care about any of the students.
I presented my final thesis with a good grade and afterwards they told me I have failed the thesis. They told me that I did not pass a class. I had no guidance on how to apply for the class again and they never answered my emails while telling me I had to do another thesis. Many students face bad attention and are treated poorly in EAE. I beg everyone doing their research online to please look for other universities. For the price of EAE there’s way better options.View more
I don’t even know where to begin… from the very first moment where you request for some info and immediately get flooded with marketing emails and calls and aggressive tactics of sales up to the point where you make your first call to Secretary to ask for some help and get ignored on your very first outreach (if you don’t trust what I am saying, call secretary and pretend to request for help on anything and see for yourself..) the point that I am trying to get across is that they just come after your money and don’t care about anything else and don’t expect to get the quality service that they sell you… you’re better off doing a bit of further research on real schools where your career prospects are really taken into account and where the quality of teaching and career strategy is really what they sell in the marketing sheets, don’t get yourself carried away with ranking figures that do no reflect the reality of the day-to-day.. beyond upset..View more
It all started with a lot of enthusiasm as I was accepted in the course in less than 3 days (already quite unlikely for an international MBA). I arrived in October and we had the “welcome month” which was interesting. Unfortunately, within a week of my arrival, they robbed me of my computer inside a classroom in the building at carrer arago 44, and none of EAE took the responsibility (as I was robbed inside their building, which is private) nor have they made themselves available to collaborate in order to find a solution to the problem. To make you aware, they robbed me during the break, when with my colleagues we went to the coffee bar for exactly 10 minutes (very strange that someone from the street who wants to steal knows exactly the break times, right ?!).
Following this bad episode, classes officially started in November.
The courses were mediocre, only a few professors really deserve the position. Some don’t even have a PhD, others are arrogant, others can’t even speak well in English and have to help themselves with words in Spanish during class.
Even if now there are no extreme limitations from COVID (currently events up to 1000 people are allowed and other schools such as EADA, IESE, etc. have organized the graduation event in attendance) with surprise EAE only offered us the option of make an event 100% online.
My advice is to avoid this school, they operate as a company that aims at profit and not at the quality of the teaching offered. They lure you with clever marketing moves, but once you’re inside they’ll totally forget you.
As a last detail, an MBA course should above all serve to open the doors to the job world. We are at the end of our course, and none of my mates have received at least one job offer.View more
Hi guys! I am currently a student at EAE Madrid doing Finance and if you have 1 great decision to make in your entire life, staying as far away from these thieves as possible would be your best bet.
They sell a GREAT story when trying to get you into the school, however these incredible marketing professionals and salespeople have actually nothing to do with the school. They are outsourced and get paid per student they bring in.
I started on November 3rd with very high hopes and much motivation soon to realize I have fallen into the trap so many have fallen for already (if you read the REAL reviews, you’d see just that). They claim that small classes with business professionals will be your habitat for a year and the professors have real-life experience.
NOT TRUE! If you follow the master in English, good luck trying to even understand your professors. They are all Spanish and cant even make 1 grammatically correct sentence if you could even understand the words coming out, that is. Online infrastructure is worse than worse. Their Wi-Fi is so bad that most of the online class lags or the microphone is not connected or the teacher forgot to record the class (for the millionth time). Many English native classmates cannot even understand the professor. Something is wrong then, right?
As a class have sent a letter to the school board about 2 weeks in and have yet to hear back from them! If I look around in the class I’d say 90% of the students would not have made this decision if they’d knew what they know now. Many have tried to get refunded for this absolute rip-off however the school just declines to give it back. Even though so many complain and they do nothing they seem to always get away with it. They all hang in there because otherwise it is a waste of time and money once they realized how badly they have been scammed.
The wonderful career talks and professionals they try to sell are all in Spanish. Over 80% of the company talks are in Spanish. Internships in this multinationals are only in SPAIN and they ALL require you to speak Spanish. So do not believe what they sell, it is simply not true.
This institution should be ashamed for how they do business and how they rip-off so many people paying sooo much money for this ”education”.
I have spoken to students from different master programs and can guarantee it is a problem everyone faces. not even 1/20 students are happy with being there but feel like they are trapped cause they loose their investment if they quit and still do not have that diploma.
Tuition varies from where you are from. Europeans pay the most. This year this came to € 15 000 with a discount between 5-20% (which they ALWAYS give) resulting in around 12k, and student from the Americas will pay around 8k after discounts. EVERYBODY gets these discounts and will pay based on their origin.
Do not let them fool you like they fooled me, my classmates and over 80% of the students currently ”studying” at EAE Business school.
I have started a blog writing about all my experiences with the school into detail should you wish more info: https://eaebusinessschool.blogspot.com/
EAE is a great business school, where you can meet different people and cultures around the world. For example, in my course, there were 16 nationalities! In terms of knowledge of teachers, I´ll give a score of 7 out of 10. Some of them are excellent, but a few are not as good as I expected. One recommendation is that there should be more accompaniment in the process of getting the TIE (Tarjeta de Identidad de Extranjeria in Spanish), some didn´t know what to do and where to go. In general, I recommend this program in EAE Business School in terms of price vs quality.View more
EAE is a good Business school to study an MBA if you read the program in enough detail and see if it aligns with your goals. The quality of the teachers is good for the most part, although there were some that weren’t at all. You will enjoy and take the most advantage of the school if you join all the events that they have and ask for all the opportunities you can have, as I did. If you’re thinking to study an International MBA but doubting of your English skills, please don’t do it! Just prepare yourself enough and go for it, it’s super worth it to have an international environment at the classroom with different points of views and way to do team work. The school itself doesn’t make events to bring together students from different masters, but there are many groups around Barcelona that you’re able to join in their activities.
So, in summary my advice is to ask yourself what is your goal, what do you wanna achieve after the master and read carefully the program to see if match with what you want.
