Sustainability, technology,
entrepeneurship & internationalisation

Our principles
and values
make us different

To constantly evolve and adapt to this new changing society, EOI bases its training offering on four basic core themes. Our aim is for the professionals we train to be able, after studying at our school, to conduct business practices and carry out projects based on these four principles. Because we believe these are fundamental keys to understanding contemporary society. Sustainability as a business practice that develops the environmentally-friendly economy. New technologies as a source of global exchange and knowledge enrichment. Entrepreneurship as an engine of economic development that gives value to creative ideas. And finally the development of a global economy in an international environment that is increasingly interconnected.

Over the next 10 years, Spain's School for Industrial Organisation EOI will make a valuable contribution to society as a global and open School:

  • It will train 50,000 professionals in social, economic and sustainable environmental business management.
  • It will promote the internationalisation and modernisation process in the management of 25,000 SMEs.

We have been making history
for over 50 years

Established in 1955, Spain’s School of Industrial Organisation was the first business school in Spain and is one of the oldest in Europe. It was a pioneer in developing specialised training programs on business skills and improving companies. Its many years of experience have enabled it to participate in modernising the economy and Spanish industries and improving Spanish companies and institutions, which has resulted in it becoming one of the most prestigious institutions in Spain. It has consequently trained over 50,000 professionals, some of whom now occupy senior positions in different organisations. EOI has spent over 50 years being committed to business development and knowledge creation. It is committed to innovation, respect for the environment, promoting new technologies and entrepreneurship.
