Álvaro García Soto possesses more than 18 years of experience exploring the financial area of companies, combined with teaching Accounting and Finance at IE Business School and ICADE. Alvaro considers this double facet a very positive experience as a good combination for applying financial analysis to the business world and vice versa.
Nine years as a financial analyst in three prestigious and top financial institutions such as the Sabadell Group, La Caixa and Bestinver, and his beginnings in accounting and control at J.P Morgan, have allowed him to acquire a solid and practical knowledge of the financial world that he enjoys transmitting in his seminars and courses of Accounting and Financial Analysis. Moreover, he keeps in touch with the financial world and the real economy as adviser of different companies and supporting entrepreneurship initiatives.
Professor García Soto combines these activities with his role as Associate Director of the Global MBA at IE Business School, one of the most innovative MBA programs of this institution, for the global representation of its participants from all over the world, as it is based on the use of different e-learning technologies (videoconferences, discussion forums, blogs, virtual meetings and presentations…) combined with on-site activities in different cities around the world.
Álvaro holds a degree in Economics and Business Studies from Universidad Pontificia de Comillas-ICADE and an International Executive MBA from IE Business School. Professor García Soto`s goal is to achieve that his students lose the fear and not the respect for numbers, that they become capable of learning the financial and accounting language and to read and interpret financial states. He tries to accomplish this challenge day by day during his lectures, arousing interest and getting his students to feel pleasure for learning.
