IE Alumni launches ‘New Year New Me’ campaign
IE Global Alumni Relations kicks off the year with a new website and a new IE Alumni Directory for the more than 60,000 IE graduates living and working in 160 countries around the world. These initiatives are part of the ‘New Year New Me’ campaign with many new features available to alumni.
Both tools serve to strengthen the relationship of the institution with alumni and to promote networking.
The new directory is accessible to alumni and current students of the five IE schools. With a design adapted to any device, mobile, tablet or computer, users can locate former colleagues, filtering by country of residence, company, sector of activity, etc. “With this new platform we intend to strengthen relationships and increase networking opportunities among members of our IE community in 160 countries,” says Julia Sánchez, Director of Global Alumni Relations at IE.
The new website provides alumni, in a centralized manner, with all the information they need to keep in touch with the institution after graduating. Easy and intuitive to use, the website provides access to a wide range of resources, including new projects in development, training programs and opportunities for collaboration. Among the initiatives are the #AlumniCreators space, where graduates can outline business projects to the rest of the IE community, and the #Volunteer area, which highlights collaboration opportunities with IE. A chatbot will soon be introduced to improve interaction for alumni.
