Lee Newman, Dean of IE Business School, today presented Next Best You, a new educational paradigm focused on creating profoundly transformational experiences for every student. The school serves as a curator actively devoted to helping students discover and pursue the next best version of themselves with the goal of preparing them for successful and responsible business careers. Next Best You is based on three strategic pillars: Your Career, Your Impact, and Your Purpose.
Supporting the launch, IE Business School’s new audiovisual campaign Keep Chasing the Next Best You features students and graduates sharing the game-changing moments and educational experiences at IE Business School that led to deep personal and professional transformation.
Appointed dean in 2021 with a mandate for innovation, Lee Newman believes that the future of business education is about finding ways to deliver transformational experiences for students that not only accelerate their careers but also help them attain better versions of themselves.
“Our mission as a business school is first to help students understand the current version of themselves – their unique aspirations, strengths, and areas for growth. We then help them define and pursue the next best version of themselves. This is the transformation we seek to catalyze,” said Newman.“It’s about getting on the right career path, acquiring the skills needed to have impact in real workplaces, and being a business professional motivated by purpose.”
