IE IN A NUTSHELL
IE University was founded in 1973 by a group of entrepreneurs who had one goal in mind: to reinvent higher education.
We offer a technology-based learning ecosystem that trains future leaders to drive change through innovation, a global vision, an entrepreneurial mindset and a unique focus on the humanities. Our life-enriching programs encourage students to develop their disruptive mindset, priming them to seize future opportunities and flourish on both a personal and professional level.
OUR APPROACH TO YOUR EDUCATION
We are living in an increasingly digital world that is no longer confined to one space. In response to this shift, we have integrated technology into our teaching methodology so that ambitious students can participate in our programs, regardless of their situation. With that in mind, we are the world’s first higher education institution to continuously adapt our programs based on trends and current realities in the working world.
Everything we do, from creating new programs to selecting faculty or defining program content, is based on our main pillars. These values make up our DNA—they define who we are:
TECHNOLOGICAL IMMERSION AND A CULTURE OF INNOVATION
HUMANITIES TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD
DIVERSE NATIONALITIES, CULTURES AND IDEAS
