Mission and Values

The mission of IE School of Communication is to train communication professionals who want to combine the latest skills in communication, digital and visual media, creativity and management to become top managers in multinational companies, agencies, public institutions, NGO’s or even if  they want to start their own company.


    We are a pioneering school that is constantly looking for new ways of thinking and managing real-world communication problems to meet the demands of a changing world.


    We seed the entrepreneurial spirit in our community, we promote disruptive ideas in our students and we teach them how to begin the process of transforming those concepts into investment-worthy companies.


    We respect and are proud of the diversity of the members of our community, students, alumni, faculty, and staff. We value free speech and put it into practice.


    We collaborate and partner with our students, faculty, alumni, staff, companies in the communication field, IE clubs andIE community to enrich networking opportunities at IE School of Communication.

    Social Responsibility

    We have the commitment to bring new solutions to sustainability and challenges in society thanks to the courses taught during our master programs and the school’s final consulting projects, consolidating initiatives in the field of social entrepreneurship and responsible business.


    We encourage our students to “think out of the box,” by placing them in real-world situations that need to be solved creatively, using the latest developments in the field.


    Humanities provide the intellectual content, breadth of vision, personal enrichment, and the sharply questioning and well-informed cast of mind needed for success in the competitive and complex world we live in.


    Business is in IE’s DNA. This is why we teach how to manage projects, teams and businesses in the various fields of communication.


    Excellence is not just an achievement for IE and its entire community. It’s also an attitude that leads IE School of Communication in the pursuit of continuous improvement.


    We promote leaders that guide hard-working and motivated teams, by giving admirable examples.

    Dean, IE School of Communication

    At IE School of Communication, we have created a vibrant environment in which to master the skills and knowledge needed to think and act in an increasingly globalized, digital, and communication-centered world.

    Our students expand their international profile in an environment that encourages diversity, citizenship, teamwork, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Our programs integrate the following three dimensions:

    • The conceptual. You will learn to think and act critically and strategically, from a deep understanding of the foundations of your profession.
    • The creative. Through a hands-on teaching methodology, you will be placed in real-world situations that call on you to solve problems creatively, using the latest developments in the field.
    • The managerial. Business is in IE’s DNA. You will learn how to manage projects, teams and businesses.

    Being a student at IE University has many advantages: a high-quality education, innovative programs, a diverse international faculty with a solid academic and professional profile, personalized academic advice, and a staff and management that are committed to enhancing your learning experience. Our campuses’ active community support network provides an excellent environment to enjoy a life-enriching academic and professional experience.

    On behalf of IE School of Communication, I look forward to welcoming you to the IE community!

    Warmest regards,

    Importance of Corporate Communication

    Meet Our Faculty at Work: Saffron

    Luciana Trigo, Bolivia, MVDM 2014

    I was working in Marketing for 3 years when I realized that the best moment of it was while working with the Advertising Agency. So I decided to switch to an Ad Agency, but coming from the “business side” I needed something else to make that shift. So the MVDM came, and it was perfect. It is perfect: very intensive teamwork with people from all over the world and high-level professors coming from business and creative industries. Actually now, I don’t feel ready to make that shift… I am ready to work with both sides!

    Chloé Bouchval, France, MVDM 2014

    I entered the MVDM program with a Bachelor in Business Administration and an international experience in Hong-Kong, Shanghai, Dubai and Paris. I joined the MVDM because it was exactly what I needed: learn how to make the ideas I had in my mind real, concrete and visible for others…and this master gave me this knowledge, and so much more! This year at IE was a real personal development catalyzer: I learnt a lot about myself in a process of empathizing with others, I met inspirational people, created real connections with peers, teachers and management staff and most importantly: I found out I was passionate about branding!

    Hussein Itani, Lebanon, Alumni MCC

    Communication and Digital Media Strategist at UFC Services

    I think that doing the Master’s in Corporate Communication at IE is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. It didn't only allow me to grow professionally, but also as a person. The MCC also helped me able to develop a "global citizen" mind-set. I truly believe that even if your future career is not in communication, still doing this master’s would be valid because it adds value that is priceless for every professional who is seeking to be a future leader and global citizen in both the business and social world.

    Houda Bennis, Alumni EMCC

    Corporate Affairs & Communication Manager at JTI (Japan Tobacco International), Morocco

    The EMCC has helped me to deep my skills in many areas in integrated Corporate Communications: Business Leadership, Marketing, Organizational Behavior, Internal Communication, KPI’s Analytics, Branding and Reputation Strategy, Brand Management and Stakeholders Management. It is a complete well-structured program that taught me to analyze market insights and gave me the skills to develop strategies for integrated global marketing communications campaigns, through real case studies, which was a new part of the business I was missing.
