The Experience


Your time at IE University will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. And it’s likely that your favorite moments won’t always take place in the classroom. Our vibrant social, cultural and sporting life, full of different nationalities, languages, and lifestyles, is what makes the connections formed at IE so unique and permanent. We’ve adapted our campus and redesigned our facilities so that you can focus on what matters most: your experience.


The IE University community is made up of over 7,000 students, and over 66,000 alumni. And with more than 140 nationalities represented across the board, we wanted to make sure that diversity and a strong community spirit remain an integral part of the IE experience.

In times when you can’t enjoy it in person, the Liquid Learning model helps us bring the IE experience to you, so that you can truly feel a part of IE.


We have 30 international offices all over the world. Not only do they help provide advice before and during the admissions process, but they facilitate collaboration and bring our community closer together.

If you can’t access in-person classes and you’re in a group of two or more people in the same location, we’re happy to host you in your nearest office so that you can work together during the residential periods. What’s more, by connecting with your local office, you’ll open the door to more extracurricular activities, events and networking opportunities with people in your area.


If you choose to study in Madrid or Segovia, you’re about to embark on an adventure that will change your outlook forever. Both Spanish cities are renowned for their blend of cultures, ideas and nationalities, and IE University is no exception.

The IE experience mixes this strong sense of culture with innovation and technology to create a Liquid Learning environment that capitalizes on state-of-the-art resources, specialized classrooms and other cutting-edge facilities. Are you ready to make the most of it?


Inspiring, life-enriching events are a fundamental part of the IE Experience. And while we haven’t been able to host them at the same capacity as before, we’ve adopted a liquid approach so that they’re compatible with the new normal while being as fulfilling as possible.

How have we made our events liquid?

Over the past year, many of our events have been held in hybrid format. That means that they are celebrated both in person, and through a combination of Zoom and our high-tech WOW Room. For example, we celebrated the Chinese New Year across two days—both in the MM31 Garden in Madrid and through a interactive, game-filled Zoom session. Similarly, our annual IE Club Awards were virtual this year, with hosts speaking in the WOW Room and nominees connecting through Zoom. The award ceremony was streamed on our YouTube channel, and you can watch the recap here.


We believe that your education and career go hand in hand. And neither of them should have to be put on hold under any circumstance. That’s why we’ve continued to host a range of employability boosting events as well as education and advising sessions throughout the year. The only difference is that now they’re in liquid format. From hybrid beer-tasting networking events to our virtual career pathways initiative, this year has been about getting creative while keeping your career at center stage.

The Virtual Talent Forum 

Innovation is at the core of everything we do at IE University. That’s why we shifted the IE Talent Forum online to create the brand new, Virtual Talent Forum. As our largest recruiting event that connects IE students with leading recruiters from all over the world, this year’s edition welcomed a grand total of 300 recruiting partners and 1,800 students. 

2021’s Spring event took place every Thursday from mid-April to mid-May, and was the perfect opportunity for students to materialize their career options across industries, while applying to jobs and networking virtually with recruiters from different sectors. Each week had a different theme, and companies that attended included Deloitte, Amazon and Sephora, to name a few.
