EADA’s methdology: “learning by doing”
EADA has developed its own practical, active
and participatory approach with an emphasis
on ‘learning by doing’. These competencies are
developed at EADA through the Case Method,
business projects, business simulations, analysis
and discussion groups and team-working activities.
Participants are consistently placed in real-life
business situations, forced to think like executives
and make strategic decisions.
We believe that good managers have emotional
intelligence, problem-solving skills and leadership
capabilities. For this reason, participants take
part in the unique Professional Development
Programme (PDP) in EADA’s residential training
The PDP includes a plan of personal and
professional growth that will be referred to
throughout the year and helps position participants
for entry into the business world. The PDP is
comprised of 4 modules:
• Module 1: Teamwork and Cultural Diversity
• Module 2: Presentation Skills
• Module 3: Negotiation Techniques
• Module 4: Leadership Skills and Integration

Hospitality Management 2010-2011, Property Management
“What really made a difference for me during
my EADA experience was the international
character of the programme and the very
practical approach. This prepared me for my
next career step and taught me how to face
challenges proactively and efficiently.”
