About EDEM

EDEM Escuela de Empresarios is a private non-profit foundation. Our mission is to train business leaders, executives and entrepreneurs and to promote leadership, entrepreneurial spirit and the culture of endeavor.

It was founded in 2002 under the auspices of the Valencian Business Association (AVE) and its trustees and members are prestigious companies.

EDEM was conceived to meet a need: to provide the business sector of the Valencian region with a “Business School” promoted by and aimed at the companies themselves. Our aim is to be a vehicle to transmit knowledge and successful experiences.

EDEM has more than 15 years proven experience in business training and quality training programs.

Our University Center, affiliated to the Universitat de València and the Universitat Politècnica de València, was set up to meet the demands of today’s businesses and society. We believe that young people are the key to the future; only through appropriate training can we create a better and more “fully employed” society.

Our aim is to impart knowledge, but also to instill the management skills and values that are essential to all successful business people, such as leadership, a strong work ethic, humility, perseverance and honesty, while also raising the profile of the entrepreneur.

In 2014 EDEM became a member of Babson Collaborative, an international initiative of Babson College, American university leader in entrepreneurship, and is the first Spanish institution member of this consortium.
