Welcome from the Rector

Rector Salvador Carmona | IE University

As Rector of IE University, I am pleased to welcome you to our institution. I invite you to learn more about us through this website, and by visiting our campus.

Our University is a pioneer in the implementation of the European Higher Education Area—a major change in higher education which we are passionate about. This change is consistent with our idea of an international and innovative university, with an unique approach to humanities, that brings together the various fields of knowledge—and where students can specialize more flexibly. This is only attainable  if a university is committed to student mobility, competence-based education and dialogue and exchanges with national, European and international universities.

Our entrepreneurial spirit and focus on employability means that knowledge transfer is one of our key values. We want companies, institutions and society to grow because of our graduates and postgraduates, who each seek to put in place their own innovative projects that unite knowledge and people.

As you learn more about IE University, you will see that our unique community is only made possible by a student-centered and personalized approach, with a dedicated staff that endeavors to make each student’s passage through IE University a unique and transformative experience. They, along with the entire academic community, including our students and alumni, also give you the warmest of welcomes to IE University.

Warm regards,

Salvador Carmona
