    "The IE Summer program has a balance between academics and extracurricular activities and has helped me further understand what I want to do at University. I really enjoyed the program’s focus on soft skills and their importance in being a successful professional, as well as the project-based approach during the second week of the course. I loved kayaking with my classmates and enjoying the sunset from the rooftop of our residence. I have also made substantial friendships with people I still keep in touch with. Food was also great!"

    "The summer camp was a very unforgettable experience for me. As the only Chinese student in this summer camp, I found myself quickly integrate into the multi-culture and made friends from all over the world. The chaperones were helpful and my teammates were friendly. In the two-week summer camp, we experienced the characteristic courses of IE University and exercised the ability of communication and teamwork through various activities. I tried many new things, such as golf, rugby and kayaking, all of which impressed me deeply. Both in the ancient Segovia campus and the modern Madrid IE Tower, I felt the dynamic atmosphere to diversity and the academic excellence towards the future. I will treasure this precious moment for ever."

    "My experience at the IE Summer Program is one I will never forget. Not only did it solidify my interest in the world of business and entrepreneurship and teach me new things, but I also made many friends from all over the world, whom I keep in touch with up to this day. The mix of lectures and extensive fun afternoon activities was the perfect balance to still enjoy my summer whilst in a university setting. I’ve noticed how much I’ve matured thanks to the program. I’m extremely happy that I decided to sign up for it."
