The Humanities provide the intellectual content, breadth of vision, personal enrichment and the sharply questioning and well-informed cast of mind needed for success in the competitive and complex world we live in.
The School of International Relations offers in both IE Business School and IE University a range of humanities' courses.
For IE undergraduate students, the faculty offers an intensive first-year seminar program designed to foster critical and creative thinking as well as help improve their proficiency in analytical writing. Seminars vary in content from year to year, and in the past have included topics in philosophy, history, linguistics and political science. Discussion-based and with small class sizes, the seminar program allows students to explore specific readings and ideas in depth.
Undergraduate Humanities Core Program
For IE graduate students, the School offers a number of courses that play either a complementary role to the students' main field of study or else are integrated within the program's core pedagogical design.
In many of the professional degree programs, students take the "World Awareness Seminar," taught by leading area specialists. The seminar examines different cultures that are increasingly critical to the modern professional environment, including China, Japan, Brazil, India, and the Muslim World. The focus of the seminar extends well-beyond merely superficial engagement to instead provide insights about how different ideas, history, legal traditions, sense of belonging, kinship structures, etc… inform cultural, and hence professional, perspectives.
For IE graduate students pursuing their MBA or International Management degree, the School offers a specially tailored program that is integrated within the larger managerial curriculum. Courses like "Creative Management Thinking" [sp: Nuevas formas de pensar] are taught as part of the program core and provide students the perspectives and toolsets informed by a humanities approach to confront the challenges of the modern business environment. Drawn from a multi-disciplinary knowledge base, including anthropology, sociology, history and critical theory, these courses encourage students to push the boundaries of what a business education means and are ground-breaking in bridging what has traditionally been a wide gulf between the humanities and professional education.
