IE University encourages students to participate in high quality internship experiences that give them professional experience in areas and sectors in which want they to build their career. Students in every degree program have the possibility to carry out an internship. Collaborating with companies and organizations in a variety of sectors builds students’ professional connections and gives them a competitive advantage in terms of their future employment.
IE Labs are IE University’s alternative to traditional internships. For students seeking internship placements, the IE Labs provide hands-on, internship-like experience on campus, working as consultants and on research projects for leading companies and institutions in a variety of sectors.
Students work in the IE Labs under the tutorship of professors, while experts provide training in areas like marketing, funding, strategy and legal aspects. IE Labs also include practical workshops throughout the year led by executives from participating companies.
Each degree program considers different internship options and/or requirements. The type of internship that students carry out varies, from working in companies and organizations, to doing research projects and working with a professor. In some degree programs the internships that are carried out could count as credits towards the degree. The duration and type of internship will determine how many credits are given.
The Online Period
The Online Period allows students to make certain internships compatible with their studies. In some Bachelor programs, one of the semesters may consist of courses delivered online, thus allowing students the possibility of carrying out internships and gain professional experiences while studying.
Planning your internship
As you plan for your internships, your advisor will discuss with you the types of internships that correspond to your professional goals.
Students must find their own internship placements in companies and organizations. In some degrees, where an internship is a required part of the program, IE University will assist students in finding internships and offer a number of options. IE University provides a few placements based on students’ academic excellence.
Throughout the internship periods, an advisor will be in contact with students to monitor their performance and help them get the most from their professional experience.
Students who require further information about internships or exchanges should contact their Degree Director or Advisor.
Candidates who require further information about exchange programs at IE University can find further information here.
Companies and organizations interested in taking part in our internship and exchange programs should contact the Director of International Relations: Maria Eugenia Marín.

Teamwork is really important at IE University and that shows when having to prepare group presentations and weekly projects. Professors are willing to help at all times and easily accessible in person or via email.

My professors are great. They have different areas of expertise, they’re always teaching you, always willing to help if you need them after class. If they know you have a specific interest in something, they’ll send you information without having to request it. You get personalized attention you don’t get anywhere else.

What stands out the most at IE University is simply how international it is. You find yourself getting to know people from different horizons with completely different ways of thinking and living. Studying at IE University helps you open up yourself to the world and approach its cultures differently. The most striking thing at the beginning is the number of different languages that you can hear in one room. And instead of being a barrier, these contrasts help us bond and learn more about ourselves and others.

The openness in the classes relaxes, enlightens and inspires one to further pursue the search for knowledge. It is truly an essential feeling knowing that thoughts can flow freely within these walls. Each day helps broaden my horizons.

I see the classes at IE filled with practicality, creativity, humanity, and diversity. With personal attention from professors, and by being inside classrooms with integrated yet small groups, I have learnt more than just what the course has to offer.
