During the first week of April, participants of all of EADA’s International Masters participated in the annual Company Connection Week. During this intense 3-day event, students take their learning outside of the classroom during company visits and networking events with executives across sectors. This year’s students could choose to stay in Barcelona or network with executives abroad in Berlin or Milan.
The Company Connection Week is based on the idea that the classroom is where learning begins. not where it ends. With this in mind, participants:
- Go beyond: get out of the classroom to learn from the real success stories of executives
- Network with industry experts: discover the innovations and challenges in Barcelona’ top industries first hand
- Grow your contacts: get to know participants from other master’s programmes as you share more valuable experiences together.
Each of this year’s cities (Barcelona, Milan and Berlín) has a lot to offer in terms of international business, and the Company Connection Week brought them to the heart of the action. Participants were invited to meet with executives in startups and multinationals in a wide variety of sectors including tech, pharma and F&B.
In Barcelona, participants had the opportunity to explore flagship local companies and initiatives as well as multinational companies with strategic hubs and operation centers in the city.
In Berlin, students learned about Berlin’s history and the drivers behind the economic powerhouse from different perspectives including new ventures, startups, tech, innovation and sustainability.
In Milan, participants attended conferences and visits to learn about Milan’s economy as a start-up and financial hub as well as exploring the Italian welfare state as a sustainable and responsible economic model.
