Jaime Pagés on graduation day
«After graduating with a Dean’s Award Distinction in the summer of 2015, I was finishing a master’s degree at Rice University in the US and I really wanted to keep on living and learning there, so I sent some CVs out, and after a few internships I got an offer from Rick Joy Architects, one of the most renowned American architecture firms of our time. Not only did they hire me for my portfolio and CV, but also for my communication and social skills.
I must say that IE University enables you to fully develop your unique potential through the personalized attention they offer, the internships they make available to you according to your interests, and by training you in communication skills, something usually underrated in schools, but that in my case landed me a fantastic job.»
