  • Foluso Gbadamosi
    I had recently been appointed to the Board of Industrial & General Insurance Company and heard about this leadership development course specifically tailored for women like myself. The course balanced all aspects of being a board member including skills like personal-branding and communication skills. It fit very well into my schedule because it was a mixture of online and face-to-face classes both in Lagos and Madrid.

  • Mehdi Nassih
    My experience at IE was unique, as I had the opportunity to study a "hot topic" in technology (Business Analytics and Big Data), in one of the best graduate schools in the world and at the center of one of the most vibrant cities in Europe. Joining IE is not only about attending classes and seminars, it is also about networking with classmates and professionals from all around the world, joining clubs and organizations that are connected to enterprises in your preferred industry, and creating new opportunities for yourself by developing or joining new projects that are being incubated at the Venture Lab or Area 31.
