"While managing Digital Transformation Projects for a bank, I chose the Accelerate program to go beyond my daily job. The course gave me the knowledge, the tools, and the confidence to thrive, believing in my capabilities to launch my own little startup - a journey that I never imagined was possible before studying at IE."
"This course gave me the confidence to explore job opportunities I wouldn't have explored before. Adding it to my CV attracted the interest of headhunters in search of candidates to enter the Biotech/Pharma sector. "
"This program is defined by the high quality and expert backgrounds of the professors. Interactive lectures, challenging assignments and case studies taught me to think outside the “researcher’s box” and opened my mind to business functions—an indispensable skill for all scientists who wish to cross the boundaries between research and industry. I grew both professionally and personally while expanding my global network of professionals."
"I have always believed in the great business opportunity arising from Spanish biomedical research. I am truly convinced in the need to establish a more fluid private-public connection that could result in the applicability of relevant academic findings that would result into a real societal impact. The Accelerate Executive Programme has given me key notions for understanding the know-how of this process. It has been a great experience shared with excellent professionals. 100% recommendable!"
