IE University welcomes applicants from all over the world. Over 75% of our students are international and represent more than 110 different countries. Our students speak 3 languages on average, and come from more than 60 different educational systems. This diversity enriches our students’ experience, and fosters reflection, debate and the exchange of ideas.
The Admissions Department highly values diversity, and the Committee’s goal is to evaluate each applicant’s academic performance, cultural background, international exposure and extracurricular activities among other criteria. We take a holistic approach to evaluating applications, and our goal is to find the most talented and interesting applicants. Our review process identifies and recognizes creativity as well as a wide range of competencies, some of which are not always reflected in traditional assessment processes. We understand this, and aim to help all ambitious students succeed at IE University.
