The Office of the Rector
Welcome from The Rector of IE University, Salvador Carmona
As Rector of IE University, I am pleased to welcome you to our institution and I would invite you to learn more about us through this website and by visiting our Segovia Campus.
Our university is a pioneer in the implementation of the European Higher Education Area, a major change in higher education which we are passionate about. This change is consistent with our idea of an international, humanistic, university of entrepreneurs that brings together the various fields of knowledge and where students can specialize more flexibly. We believe that our motto, Unus Mundus, Mentes Diversae, will only be achievable if a university is committed to student mobility, competence-based education, dialogue and exchanges with national, European and international universities.
The common world referred to in our motto also means the world shared by universities and society. Our entrepreneurial spirit and focus on employability means that knowledge transfer is one of our key values. We want companies, institutions and society to grow because of our graduates and postgraduates, who each seek to put in place their own innovative projects that unite knowledge and people.
Mentes diversas, the other part of our motto, not only describes our rich university community but also the range of interests at our university. IE University believes that research in the Humanities and Social Sciences, in Law and in Business, in Experimental Science and in Architecture and Design is the bedrock of our holistic, quality, undergraduate and postgraduate education. Only a university that fosters research in a wide variety of areas can ensure cutting-edge knowledge transfer.
As you learn more about IE University you will see that our community is only made possible by a student-centered approach and the dedication of all the university’s staff. They, along with the entire academic and research community, and our students and alumni, also give you the warmest of welcomes to IE University.
