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.
