Entrepreneurs Rock! At IE, we believe that our students represent the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders. Our job is to give you the skills you need to start your own journey. Let us show you the way to success.
Entrepreneurship is a way of life
For us, these are words to live by. Entrepreneurs are the drivers of change in our society, and these ambitious individuals are responsible for encouraging development and growth on a global scale.
A thriving entrepreneurial sector depends on managing innovation effectively, from start-ups to multinational corporations. New products and business ideas are developed every day, and we need to be ready to seize these opportunities. We have to make ourselves open to new perspectives, and maintain a forward-thinking, proactive attitude.
At IE, we remind our students that change and growth starts from within. Our goal is to provide opportunities for students to discover their entrepreneurial passion, connect with other talented individuals and fuel their creativity with cutting-edge technology.
Our students have world-shaping potential. We help them release it.
Created by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship is part of who we are. Since our school was founded in 1973 by a group of visionary entrepreneurs, a spirit of enterprise has come to define everything we do. Whether it's teaching methods, enhancing program offering, or building a dynamic community of partners, investors, public figures and start-ups, IE has always been a leader in innovation.Learn more about our philosophy
