IE University Summer Booster Focuses on Post-COVID World and Entrepreneurship

IE University Summer Booster Focuses on Post-COVID World and Entrepreneurship

The Summer Booster runs from July 27 to August 28.

IE University’s complimentary summer program, the Summer Booster, offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to further expand their academic experience during August and to network with peers and professors from across the university’s five schools ((IE Business School, IE Law School, IE School of Global and Public Affairs, IE School of Human Sciences & technology e IE School of Architecture & Design).

The Summer Booster runs from July 27 to August 28 and students have chosen between two tracks and a variety of modules, according to their interests and goals:

  • Track 1: “How to Succeed in a Post-COVID World” has five modules that focus on Innovation, Digital Transformation, Responsible Leaders, Skills for Your Future Work, and Arts & Humanities for the 21st Century. The program has been developed in line with IE University’s new liquid learning methodology and enables students to participate simultaneously in the classroom and online.
  • Track 2: “Entrepreneurship Camp” runs for four weeks and helps students develop their entrepreneurial character, test ideas, and experience what it is like to build a business. Given the experiential nature of this offering, students participate in a fully face-to-face format and commit to the full four weeks of intensive learning.

This is the first time that IE University opens its campus in August. In early June, IE University announced that its campus would reopen in July and begin the coming academic year normally, with all the necessary health, academic, technological, and logistical protocols. With the new liquid learning methodology, courses have been redesigned with new methodologies, contents, and academic materials and hybrid sessions will simultaneously connect face-to-face students with online students for the same immersive experience and academic quality. The institution has also redesigned its facilities and equipped classrooms with technological solutions that enhance interaction.
