Junior Advisory Board (JAB)

IE University’s Junior Advisory Board brings together an annually selected group of talented high school junior students from across the globe, all of whom share a dedication to leadership and an interest in the improvement of higher education. Selected candidates will embark on an all-expenses-paid four day trip to the heart of Spain where they will participate in a collaborative summer conference on IE University’s undergraduate campuses in the cities of Segovia and Madrid. The summit culminates with a member-led presentation to IE University’s Board of Directors based upon the participants’ experience at high school in their respective countries following different curricula. The JAB was founded with the idea of bringing fresh and bright young minds whose valuable input could bring a close up firsthand perspective to university policy while offering successful high school students with an opportunity to visit a world-class university, show their passion for positive change as well as enjoying Spain and its culture. If you have opinions that you want heard, are confident in front of an audience and would like to visit IE University and discover Spain, get your application to us by the 31th of January, 2016. This year’s Junior Advisory Board Meeting will take place on April 11-15th.
