This weekend, IE University is holding its Alumni Weekend Madrid, bringing together alumni from over 60 countries. The event is set to take place at the IE Tower, the academic organization’s new technological, sustainable headquarters in the north of Madrid and the world’s third tallest university campus. The reunion will be held on November 5 and 6 and aims to strengthen the university’s international graduate network and analyze the challenges facing the business world. The forum will feature IE professors such as Milo Jones, Rolf Strom-Olsen and Gayle Allard.

During the event, entitled “Shifting Worlds”, attendees will be invited to participate in conferences and round tables in which they can analyze the challenges facing society in the post-pandemic era and examine how organizations have adjusted to provide an agile response to society’s new demands.

“Our alumni are our finest ambassadors globally. We are proud to welcome them back to our university and to debate the rapid changes that have occurred over the past two years. In addition, in this year’s Alumni Weekend they will be able to participate in IE Talent & Careers days to fast track their careers.”

“We organize Alumni Weekends all over the world, in cities such as Medellin, Beirut, Lisbon, Los Angeles and Singapore. This year, we are returning to Madrid for this strategic face-to-face meeting at the IE Tower,” added Julia Sánchez. During the weekend, the visiting alumni will have the chance to visit IE University’s new headquarters, a 180-meter high, 50,000-square-meter building located in the north of Madrid, with a marked technological and sustainable profile. The IE Tower features technological immersion, virtual reality and artificial intelligence, 64 classrooms with flexible layouts and 30 unique spaces that encourage interaction, innovation and creativity, as well as landscaped outdoor areas to facilitate social and cultural activities.
