Epic Awards EPIC is an initiative launched by the Global Alumni Relations department with aim to share the stories of our outstanding alumni from across all IE Schools and programs to inspire the IE Community.
Extraordinary people inspiring the IE community
The Essence: Personal Progress. Human Success.
The IE experience involves a personal and professional transformation process that is ultimately reflected in the achievements of our alumni. Our more than 50,000 alumni contribute to their organizations and the society in more than 120 countries worldwide.
EPIC alumni perform in their personal and professional lives by the same standards of excellence that have been taught at IE’s undergraduate and master programs. Our EPIC alumni are accomplished entrepreneurs, leaders, and role models that show commitment to society and deliver exemplary work in their fields of knowledge throughout the different stages of their lives.

The journey has taught me that when opportunity knocks, ask yourself: Is this an opportunity I believe in passionately and unconditionally? Is this something I am willing to sacrifice everything to work on? Developing and nurturing this mindset has allowed me to experience a lifetime journey unlike any I could have dreamed of. Taking these boys from the depths of despair to empower them to change their life has been an incredible journey."
