IE Business School holds graduation ceremony 2018

IE Business School today held the graduation ceremony for the students of its MBA, Masters in Finance and Master in Management programs. In the course of the ceremony, the Prime Minister of Lebanon, Saad Hariri, was awarded the IE University Medal in recognition of his commitment to promoting economic development and consolidating the democratic system in Lebanon. The keynote address was delivered by Gillian Tans, CEO of Booking.com.

Saad Hariri has led the Future Movement Party since 2005. He served as Prime Minister of Lebanon between 2009 and 2011, and last May he was given the mandate to form a new government following parliamentary elections. He has received many international distinctions, including that of “Legion d’Honneur” awarded to him in 2007 by then French President Jaques Chirac.

“It’s an honor to award Saad Hariri the IE University Medal as a mark of our respect and admiration for the commitment he has shown to promoting economic development and consolidating the democratic system in Lebanon,” said Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, President of IE University. IE University currently has 69 Lebanese students on campus, and more than 350 Lebanese alumni.

After the medal was presented to Saad Hariri, Gillian Tans, CEO of Booking.com, gave the keynote address for the IE University graduation ceremony. “Whatever you do after today, bring a global perspective to your work and to your life. Think globally” said Tans, who has held the position of CEO of Booking.com since April 2016.

IE Business School leads FinTech education in Europe

IE Business School Masters in Finance now offer the opportunity to specialize in FinTech.

Students of IE’s MIF programs are able to place a special focus on fields like blockchain, crowdfunding, cryptocurrencies, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence in the finance industry, algorithm management, or alpha generation platforms, all of which provide powerful tools to tackle challenges thrown up in the field of financial management in a world that has been transformed by technology. IE Business School is thus the first school in Europe to offer Masters in Finance and Masters in Advanced Finance with a specialization in Fintech.

The FinTech specialization will henceforth form part of the IE Masters in Finance calendar, running for 3 months. Students will also be able to specialize in corporate finance and in investment.

“Our students will undergo a total immersion process, learning about and using key FinTech tools and developments,” says Ignacio de la Torre, Director of the Masters in Finance of IE Business School. “Technology has revolutionized the world of finance, everything has changed and we now have to equip finance professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to manage disruption. An education that encompasses areas like big data, artificial intelligence, roboadvising and blockchain will permit our students to understand how technology works to make a seamless transition to future development with an innovative vision and solid understanding of the field.”

The Chinese market and the digital revolution are among the keys to understanding the luxury sector

Fourth Edition of the IE Luxury Barometer report prepared by IE and Mastercard. China is one of the key players influencing the luxury market last year, according to the experts who participated in the IE Luxury Barometer 2017, prepared by IE and Mastercard’s Observatory for the Premium and Prestige Products Market.

Other factors they highlighted include the innovative changes brought about by the digital revolution and the need for increased competitiveness in the sector, along with the difficulties companies face in differentiating themselves. All of these factors have helped to position creativity as an essential part of the sector’s strategies. At the same time, building memorable experiences for clients continues to play a pivotal role for the fourth consecutive year. The study reflects the list of key issues cited by industry professionals during 2017, which they say will continue to influence their priorities this year.

Earlier editions of the report were based on the experiences of European experts, while this year the scope of study was expanded to include professionals from the United States, bringing greater relevance and depth to the analysis.

The experts surveyed attribute the increased competitiveness of this segment to market saturation and increasingly demanding customers. Given the growth experienced in previous years, these factors have taken on greater precedence. However, the issues that most concern the main players in the industry are those related to accessibility and customer relations.
