IE University Embraces Liquid Learning Model, Unique Worldwide

At the start of the next academic year, all undergraduate, postgraduate, and executive education students can choose to attend class on campus or online and receive the same immersive experience and academic quality.

IE University has developed a unique liquid learning model with the aim of transforming the education landscape. Launching across all five of IE University schools this September, the new education model will allow students, who hail from a total of 140 countries, to attend class in person or online with equal immersive experience and academic excellence.

All IE University programs will have a hybrid format and be simultaneously attended by students in the classroom and online. The format will provide flexibility for students and reinforce active and personalized learning that focuses on solving real world problems. To accomplish this, IE University has adapted all courses to include new methodologies, content, and academic materials. Facilities and classrooms have likewise been redesigned and equipped with technological solutions that enhance interaction.
