Liquid Learning Model in Practice

How IE students experience Liquid Learning Model

IE Professors have the gift and capacity to inspire students to approach their education with intellectual curiosity and wellbeing while becoming their advisors and mentors.
This gift is also one that has the potential to facilitate the kind of transformation that will have a deep impact on our students along the rest of their careers.

That is why Liquid Learning places the educator’s role at the heart of our university learning experience.

In this section, the floor is to our best Ambassadors: IE Professors and students to present their experiences with Liquid Learning by providing a wide variety of practical examples.


IE’s Liquid Learning offers a dynamic and effective learning experience to our bachelor students. With an active approach to learning, students acquire knowledge, develop skills and change mindsets. Programs provide the perfect balance between robust theory foundations and a complete tool kit to develop skills for solving real-world challenges. Along their journey, students will benefit from an education that is evidence and practice-based achieving concrete learning outcomes. The best way to reach this goal is by collaborating, observing others as well as getting and giving feedback.

We strongly believe that XXI century education needs to be personalized to support the unique needs, personal growth, and aspirations of our students.

A new challenge is being added to this one: the capacity to provide a cutting-edge educational experience any place, any time and to any learning pathway our students may need it for.

With an innovative spirit driven by technology and rooted in its core values, IE’s is accepting the challenge of nurturing its learning pathways with a wide range of dynamics including mobile learning, virtual reality practices, on-campus and remote extracurricular activities, exchanges, immersive periods, and internships to name just a few.

Liquid Learning Model Applied to IE's values

At IE University our students are immersed in a technologically innovative environment, preparing them to take a leadership role in the modern world’s new digitally transformed landscape.

We place Humanities at the heart of this innovation mindset as key in understanding the reality of our world, applying key critical-thinking skills to complex, global challenges.

With a global approach to education, diversity is also core within our DNA. Our rich mix of nationalities, ideas, and perspectives make up the fabric of IE University. With students, graduates, and professors from more than 160 countries, our Global Campus is a truly international hub.

Together with innovation, humanities, and diversity, IE University breeds entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship, creating an ecosystem that expands far beyond the confines of the campus, where students and graduates can grow and develop their innovative start-ups.

Last but not least, IE’s core values are meant to last. Sustainability, therefore, joins our efforts in every single learning activity we design, coordinate, implement and evaluate.

IE’s Liquid Learning Model is a reflection of our values as it is showed in the wide range of initiatives boosted by IE Community.
