The 70s

IE Business School opened its doors in the heart of Madrid's financial district in 1973. Those early years saw the launch of its MBA and Executive MBA programs, and the creation of the School's Advisory board and its Alumni Association. As Spain opened up to the world IE served as a platform for debate on business challenges on an international level.

The 80s

In 1983 the school's International MBA was born. The same decade saw the creation of IE's entrepreneurship department, geared to strengthen the school's entrepreneurial spirit, and new initiatives which included IE's Juan Lladó Award for cultural patronage. The campus now covered more than 7,000m2 and over 1,000 students attended IE master programs.


The 90s

The IE Business School Foundation was created, coupled with the New-York based IE Fund, with the aim of fostering research and scholarships for brilliant students. IE also launched its Business Leadership Forum where key players meet to examine challenges in the fields of economy, politics and management. IE founded the Sumaq Alliance in collaboration with leading Latin American business schools.


The 00's

IE has presented Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of Google, Craig R. Barret, CEO of Intel, and Emilio Azcárraga, President of Televisa, with  Honoris Causa MBAs. IE has extended its education model to undergraduate level with IE University. Students from 92 countries on campus and 40,000 alumni working in 125 countries worldwide evidence IE's evolution to date.
