Map your own path to success

A personalized study path

IE University takes an applied and student-centered approach to education where each individual’s uniqueness is identified and students are given the chance to build their own path. You can personalize your program by adding to the core degree an area of concentration, complimentary courses, seminars, internships and IE Labs, the sum of which is a well-balanced degree program.

Personalized Support

Students receive academic guidance from tutors and advisors who provide direction and help them to integrate the different elements of their degree in order to build a personalized academic program that matches their professional aspirations.

IE Start-Up Lab

The IE Start-Up Lab is an incubator where students can develop their business plans and make them investment ready, with the guidance of professors and entrepreneurs. Students are given further resources with the support of IE Business School’s Venture Lab, where they can pitch their idea to potential investors at IE Venture Days and turn their ideas into reality.

Advanced Seminars

Advanced Seminars complement the core degree by giving students deeper knowledge of subjects in their major area of study, and enable students to integrate other fields of study into their program.

IE Labs and Internships

IE Labs are IE University’s alternative to traditional internships. Aimed specifically for first and second year students seeking high level internship placements, the IE Labs provide hands-on, internship-like experience on campus, working on projects for leading companies and institutions in a variety of sectors. Additionally, students can also carry out internships, working in different sectors and gaining professional skills and an international profile that are highly valued by employers.

Final Degree Project

The Final Degree Project is a major part of the fourth year’s curriculum. Students choose their topic with faculty and are guided by their advisor, drawing upon the knowledge the student has gained from specific academic areas and internships or IE Labs projects which the student carried out during their degree program.
