OUR INITIATIVES

UNDERGRADUATE AND MASTER ADVANCED SEMINAR PROGRAM

Being an undergraduate or master student is an exhilarating, life-changing experience that builds the foundations on which students will build their future.

Yet our students,  coming from around the globe to study at IE University in Madrid or Segovia, must successfully tackle many challenges to take full advantage of their university experience – for example they need to rise to heavy academic demands, integrate socially in a diverse community, find an appropriate work/life balance, and learn to manage stress, ambiguity and change.

The Advanced Seminars Program is designed to give IE undergraduates a “life advantage”, providing them with a practical understanding and set of tools to boost their performance in the three core areas of Body, Mind and Purpose.

Who: All Undergraduate and Master students at IE University (Madrid, Segovia).

When: Each Semester, various modules will be proposed. These seminars are offered to master students and to undergraduate students across all the  years of their Bachelors programs in all IE Schools.

How: 6 week modules with group training once a week, and experiential projects and activities. Write to wellbeingcenter@ie.edu for more information.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE ATTENTION

Attention is a limited cognitive resource, that in today’s digital world is being overwhelmed by information and interruption. Inside and outside the classroom, students struggle to maintain an engaged, active focus and -- choosing thoughtfully how best to use this precious resource.

This workshop introduces students to the surprising science of attention, invites them to assess and track their own attention (and distraction!), and gives them digital and behavioral tools they can use to better improve their attentional performance inside and outside the classroom.

Who: All Masters students in the IE School of Human Sciences & Technology.

When: Start of the Fall term.

How: The workshop method involves attentional self-assessment, interactive presentation and discussion, an experiential attention-tracking project, and post-project assessment and debriefing.
