Those early years saw the launch of its MBA and Executive MBA programs, and the creation of the School's Advisory board and its Alumni Association. As Spain opened up to the world IE served as a platform for debate on business challenges on an international level.Pasion>ie. "Pasión por innovar y emprender"
In 1983 the school's International MBA was born. The same decade saw the creation of IE's entrepreneurship department, geared to strengthen the school's entrepreneurial spirit, and new initiatives which included IE's Juan Lladó Award for cultural patronage.

Welcome to IE Business School, an innovative and entrepreneurial management learning hub.
IE Business School’s programs have internalized the main phenomena influencing business education today: the globalization of management; the impact of new technologies on the learning process; the recognition of diversity and new expressions of intelligence among students; along with the development of diverse sources and channels to deliver knowledge.
The recent crisis provides IE Business School with the opportunity to revive our core mission of providing the best possible managers and entrepreneurs with a solid professional grounding and a clear commitment to the global society.
At IE we believe that business education is not just about creating good administrators, competent financial engineers, or accomplished management technicians, but also global citizens. We believe that the education delivered at our business school should involve a personal transformation process. That is why, for example, we integrate the study of the humanities into our business programs. Putting the humanities at the core of all study programs cements the learning experience and develops open-minded and well-rounded graduates.
IE offers a wide range of management programs, from undergraduate degrees to executive education development courses, all suited to the specific needs of managers and entrepreneurs over the course of their careers. Our portfolio covers both face-to-face modes of delivery, along with innovative blended formats. Undoubtedly, the cornerstone of the learning process at IE is our faculty, who excel at both teaching and research.
Management has the potential to be one of the noblest professions. . Management and entrepreneurship creates growth, wealth, and development in society; it also creates jobs, catalyses innovation and improves living conditions. Good management offers one of the best antidotes to many of the world’s ills, a remedy for intolerance or erroneous foreign policy, promoting as it does convergence and understanding between peoples. We need more and better managers and entrepreneurs, and IE Business School is prepared to take on the formidable but captivating challenge in responding to this global demand.

The Dean of IE Business School, Santiago Iñiguez, shares the traits that make this institution a center of excellence in the field of management education
IE is a relatively young initiative that has extended its sphere of influence as it has matured, being fully cognizant of its impact on society.
Born of an entrepreneurial spirit centered on educating managers, IE has developed by integrating the interests and needs of business professionals with the demands of the organizations where they work.
Logically, this process has also been shaped by the interests and concerns of alumni and their business projects, which have brought added impetus to IE’s entrepreneurial approach.
The extension of the IE project to include a University, to further develop its special focus on social sciences, and to continue its extraordinary efforts in the fields of research and knowledge generation, has resulted in a qualitative leap in terms of the consolidation of areas in which IE had already gained considerable experience through its Schools of Law and Humanities. Further specialized Schools that already formed part of the University have served to enable IE to provide an exceptionally well-rounded educational experience.
The challenge now facing IE is that of endowing this hub of knowledge and educational experiences with a common identity which reflects a broad plethora of values. IE’s core values include the importance of an entrepreneurial mindset, the richness afforded by a diversity of people and cultures, technology as a tool for progress, and humanistic sensibility as a tool to heighten the capacity of a good business leader.
This identity must leave its mark on the trajectories of both the students and business organizations that work with IE, and on the way they understand how transparent governance is interrelated with the society in which they operate.
The vantage point provided by IE’s maturity brings an acute awareness of how it impacts its environment. Hence it has assumed a commitment to play a positive role in the creation of opportunities for the different segments that comprise the fabric of a thriving civil society.
IE’s ultimate aim is to have a positive impact on its students’ careers, on the sustainability of business organizations, on the creation of networks among students and graduates, and, in turn, on the communities in which they work as managers, or where they head their business initiatives.
In our capacity as a social agent in a global world, we want to help with an in-depth analysis of the ethical significance of corporate behavior, the importance of doing things properly when it comes to competitiveness in management, and the strengths needed by top-tier entrepreneurs and managers not only to run companies, but also to bring about a positive transformation of their environments.
