See... the highly skilled migrant program ended in 2008. However, there is still hope.. now it doesn't matter which school you went to, only that you have enough "points" to get in. Any masters degree, including an MBA, counts as 35 points:

you will definitely need Spanish to work in Spain or Latin America - although some of them speak English very well, they prefer to do business in their own language. since Spanish is 3rd language in the world in terms of the number of people speaking it, it would sure be worth to learn it!
the good news are, it is quit easy! you can master it pretty quickly(i know some people how learned it by watching television!!!). just be sure to take classes, and if possible, try to stay with a family there, and have as much contact with Spanish people as possible(quit easy as they are very friendly and talkative.

and congratulations for the admission ! can you tell us a bit about the interview? what where you asked? what did you answer?

If you read this whole thread you would have found this link that I posted earlier: www.find-mba.com/board/9463

In it, I explained what questions EADA asked during the interview (although I interviewed back in May):

"Here are some of the questions they asked. You only had a couple minutes to answer each one. (there were additional questions, but these are the ones I remember):

What do you hope to get out of an MBA?
Have you ever lived abroad?
What are your best qualities?
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
If you could meet any famous person who would it be?
What do you do in your current job?
If you were going to hire someone for your current position what qualities would you look for?
If you were mayor of your city what would you change?
Which animal would you be?
What is your best quality when working in a group setting?
Describe a perfect day for you.
Have you had many changes in your life?
What's the best decision you have ever made?
If I gave you a brick, what would you do with it?
What will you remember about this interview?
If you could use one word to describe this interview what would it be?"

I had remarked that, unlike other interviews I had done, EADA's was not very conversational. Instead, it was like the interviewer was filling out a questionairre and you just had to quickly answer each question. Another person, named Matt.Cod said:

"Thanks a lot for your feedback, but I had an interview with the EADA Director and the questions were very different from yours.
The meaning was the same, still to see how you would react, but instead of a brick was what would you do with a broken MP3.
I enjoyed very much the interview because even if there were many questions and it could not be conversational or it would take two hours, I really connected with the interviewer and it made me think a lot of my life and on what I expect from it "

i was actually directing my question at shilendrajadon, but i am glad that you posted your experiences again for me!(and shilendrajadon, please post the questions you where asked, so we can compare)

so, i guess that this interview is comprised of questions that are relevant to MBA and questions that could fit in a beauty contest.... :-)

what do you think is the purpose of these questions? to check your communication skills? your imagination? or just to see if they can throw you of track....

i mean, is there a wrong answer to a question like: Which animal would you be? a bird yes, a dog no?

No, there's no wrong answer, but my guess is that you would have to frame it in terms of business, or how you would do at business school, like "I would be a dog because I'm generally obedient but also tenacious." It's like putting your personality into terms they'd understand.

When I got the animal question, I was like "I've never really thought about that".. and he's like " well just pick something" and I was like.. "uh.. a bird?" And he was like "because they fly?" and I was like, "sure!"

I thought I had done really terrible in that interview, but I got an admit... so apparently they don't totally hold it against you if you are thrown off by their questions.. anyone reading this should be amply prepared though!

I thought those questions were pretty silly, but they did also ask motivational questions which allow you to explain all the typical stuff, like why you want to do an MBA. I think all the hypotheticals are just to see how you answer the questions, and maybe get some insight into your personality. I really don't think it matters much what you say. "I don't know" is probably a bad answer though :P

I had an interesting conversation after the interview with the EADA MBA Director and it all started when at the beginning he was explaining me that he wanted to know how i was reasoning. Then after all those questions which you already know, I understood. Actually i saw that the way he was going through some of my answers got me really on the spot since he was always getting to the "WHYs?". I asked him at the end what was all this setting and I liked his answer since he told me that the interview reflects the MBA philosophy and if you did not like the interview you should realy think if this is th right school, since EADA approach to Business is not standard.

I had the Interview few weeks ago and the questions were on the same style, but totally different. I hated the interview, but now I am realizing I am still thinking about it.

Especially because I was not admitted....
