Every year we receive students from all corners of the world who come to our campus. They come with different aspirations, ideas and expectations to join an environment defined by its international outlook and rich diversity.
Our students are characterized by having a global perspective, motivation towards achieving their personal and professional goals, an entrepreneurial spirit that sparks their creativity, and a profound desire of leaving their mark wherever they go.
It isn’t the institution itself that makes the IE University Community unique. It’s the talent that chooses to study here. Each of the following five students’ stories represent values that IE University is proud of. By always embracing new experiences outside the classroom, they truly embody what we mean when we talk about taking a multifaceted approach to learning. Entrepreneurship, creativity, diversity, being a team player, walking your own path and embracing change are characteristics IE University looks for in every single member of its community.
Our students are passionate about many different things. Some of them are passionate about sports, others about the arts, and others about developing new business ideas.
We have students who are passionate about motorcycles, horse-riding, singing, painting, and much more. If there is something that defines our students, it is their hunger for living their passions and sharing them with the world.
An important part of the learning journey at IE University are the hands-on projects that the students undergo in the different bachelor’s programs. Through these projects, our students express their creativity, bring their ideas to life, and let their imagination free to create true pieces of art.
The permanent transition project focuses on the corralas (low income housing) of downtown Madrid, specifically one in the Lavapies area. Being of the oldest residential buildings, the area over time has acquired a poor reputation. That is where the purpose of this project comes in; to bring new life to the corrala with the addition of a unique reception to act as an interface between the residents and the city’s tourists.
The Hub is a space with the optimal environment for connecting, facilitating and enhancing growth and development. It is located a specific spot inside Leeds University campus because there is a numerous amount of activity and wide variety of people (age and culture) and both the city and the university are missing co-working spaces.
