Entrepreneurship

An entrepreneurial spirit is at the heart of our institution. We champion new ways of thinking and create an environment where students can unleash their creativity, push boundaries, and venture into the unexplored. Students are not only encouraged to start new initiatives, they are provided with the resources and training they need to be successful. We continually strive to foster this entrepreneurial mindset and develop the capacities which enable our students to create value and make a difference in society.

Many of our students express the desire to learn how to launch their own business or projects and during their time at IE University many begin. Each of the degree programs at IE University has a strong focus on cultivating students’ entrepreneurial skills, which includes the basic know-how from business and management classes and seminars, a humanistic education that allow students to view the world from new perspectives, and the resources through the Start-Up Lab and the IE Venture Lab.

 

Academic rigor

IE University is committed to excellent standards of academic teaching and learning. Our elite faculty of both scholars and practitioners maintain a clear focus on academic rigor. Programs at IE University are rigorous and are for students who want to push themselves beyond their comfort zone. Ongoing support and evaluation by professors and advisors challenges students to continually achieve their full potential.

 

Innovation

IE University is a pioneer in innovative programs that approach areas of study in a different way. Innovation thrives in an environment that is flexible and adaptable, where the capacity to think ahead and cultivate new skills is considered essential for a top tier education.

 

Humanistic approach

A humanistic education provides personal and intellectual enrichment, sharpens critical thinking, and enlarges the depth and breadth of vision needed to build your own point of view and make sense of our complex world. The IE Module, which comprises fundamental courses in Ethics, Humanities, and Interpersonal Skills, provides students with a framework with which to understand different cultural perspectives. Through a humanistic education, we enable students to see new possibilities and foster their creativity, allowing them to be innovative and entrepreneurial in a globalized world.

I chose to study here because of the international campus and I saw that it was a very practical university. The rankings were another thing that were really important to me, I wanted a university with international presence and recognition.

What I like most about this university is its international atmosphere. Also, being a small university means it feels like I am with my family. Here all fields of study end up integrating; Communication, Business, Architecture…and that way we all learn from each other.

I feel privileged to be studying in such a diverse and inspiring environment. IE University takes both an intelligent and dynamic approach to learning that motivates and requires one to make the most of the numerous opportunities available. In addition to the rigorous academic life, the combination of living in Spain and having an international group of friends creates a totally unique experience that expands your horizons and prepares you for the future.

The international community at our University not only provides me with friends and contacts from around the world, but it allows me to sit in a classroom where so many different cultures merge to discuss a topic from multiple angles. This is an experience that made me trust in myself and taught me how to think outside the box.
