Bachelor in Design - Design Council

Create a better reality


In today´s world it is more important than ever to combine professionals, industry and academia in order to gain invaluable insight and knowledge. Our School seeks to form an intense bond between education and the real world, in order to understand cutting edge design trends and social tendencies, and our partners in the field who provide up-to-date information on what´s really happening.

The Design Council is formed by prominent companies, organizations and professionals who share the belief that design is a powerful tool for change. This Council is composed by three type of members:


The advisors are renown and influencial professionals that have their finger on the pulse of the broad world of design.

They will help us to define the Council’s agenda, the most important issues to tackle, which will be mainly related to worldwide problems.


Those professionals who take on clients’ challenges and seek to tackle them from their design office.

They will also bring their perspective on solving client's problems to share with our community.


Those who know the value of design today and use it in their day to day business or institutional activities.

These companies and public institutions will bring challenging projects to collaborate with IE University’s students and professors to define the problem and work on possible innovative solutions.
