The EADA admission process is designed to identify candidates with certain skills and qualities. Applicants are university graduates with management potential between 22 and 27 years old with 0-3 years of work experience.
EADA offers three programmes in the area of finance: the International Master in Finance, International Master in Accounting & Financial Management and Master Internacional en Finanzas – Bilingüe.
Here Jaume Bonet, director of the International Masters in the area of finance, shares his ideas about the most important qualities in an applicant:
Motivation and commitment
An ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate that they are sufficiently motivated to successfully complete the programme. The MiF programme is a very intense programme, and you will be expected to devote around 8-10 hours a day to fulfill your obligations. Much of the work during the programme will be done in teams and you will be required to show your commitment to team-work and team projects. In addition, the ideal candidate will have the ambition of leading and motivating teams.
A problem-solving mind-set
During the programme, participants analyse complex business situations that require the ability to synthesize, conceptualize and think critically. Intellectual curiosity is essential as problem-solving skills are acquired through the desire to learn and effective team-working. When it comes to assessing your academic ability we are assessing where you will finish the programme, not where you start.
