OUR COMMITMENT FOR YOUR LEARNING

IE University trains the next generation of change-makers through programs that allow students to put theory into practice from day one.

Guided by leading industry professionals who understand the power and interconnected nature of data and technology, students graduate with the ability to bring ideas to life, tackle complex situations and effectively manage teams.

Our unique Liquid Learning model is a practical and innovative strategy that combines the best of virtual and in-person education, encompassing case studies, multimedia simulations, class debates and team projects with real clients across various sectors.

HANDS-ON TEACHING METHODOLOGY

HST was born in response to the specific demands in the exciting new world of work.

  • Learning

    Our programs give you the opportunity to collaborate on real-world projects for hands-on experience in your chosen career path. Designed to equip you with the skills, techniques and insights necessary to be successful in any future scenario, our programs allow you to stay ahead of the curve.

    Preparing our graduates to become the change-makers of tomorrow, you apply what you learn as you learn it. Come graduation day, you will be capable of confidently putting ideas to paper, tackling complex situations and effectively managing teams.

OUR TEACHING METHODOLOGIES

  • EXPERIENTIAL PROJECTS

    In these real-world consulting projects, a client will provide a challenge and you and your teammates will address it and present your results to a panel of expert judges. You will also have the chance to work under pressure and stretch your creative boundaries with your participation in engaging competitions that mirror the modern workplace like datathons, hackathons, and the IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities.

  • CLASS DEBATES & TEAMWORK

    Our classrooms are idea incubators. We encourage our students to engage in debate and exchange perspectives every day. With our extremely diverse student profiles, you’re guaranteed to finish the program with an open, global mindset, and the ability to work in teams with people from all walks of life. The fact is, career success is not just about individual performance, it’s also about being highly effective in collaborating and communicating with coworkers.

  • CASE STUDIES

    Through our practical and career-focused programs, concepts and theory are always linked to the real-world situations and decisions you will face in your career. Our engaging business-oriented case studies allow you to put ideas into practice and develop your professional judgement by questioning what you would have done in a similar situation and why.

  • SIMULATIONS

    You will participate in cutting-edge multimedia simulations to apply your knowledge as you go. You may be tasked with handling the crisis management of a corporate social media scandal or work in teams to plan and carry out a global sporting event. Or you might even try to overcome the prisoner’s dilemma in a simulation that requires tacit cooperation in using a shared resource to produce your product.
