A day in the life of...

  • Morning

    We spoke to student Valeria Carraturo to see what her day-to-day is like in the program. “In the morning, we usually have classes. A class that I really liked was the entrepreneurship class—we had to develop a business plan, and it was my first time. It was challenging, but interesting; you’re creating something from scratch. At the end we pitched it as if we were pitching it to investors. That was really valuable to me because I could imagine myself in the future creating a new venture. So that was a good learning experience and fun.”

  • Midday

    “When we’re not in class, normally we have a quick lunch and then we meet with our teams. Our team is great, we have a really close relationship. Or if we don’t have classes, I may stay at MM31 and see what’s going on.”

  • Afternoon

    “I really like the Venture Lab on Thursdays. We have cool pitches every Thursday where real investors come so it’s really interesting to see what the IE teams do for business ideas.”

  • Night

    “I study a lot. Very often we spend hours with the team and we finish very late. Yesterday we were here until 1. But that’s very normal for us. Yes, we do study a lot. But on Friday evenings it’s girls’ night. After class, we always go for drinks somewhere around, like for example Selfies, and have tapas and wine and music, and we go there every Friday.”
