King´s College students attend sessions on entrepreneurship and leadership at IE University

Secondary students from Kings College, a British school based in Spain and considered one of the best institutions for international education, will take part in two workshops on entrepreneurship and leadership. These events will take place the 25th of November in Segovia, led by IE University professors.

The education these students receive is focused on preparing them to study in universities in the United Kingdom, Europe or the United States. Over one hundred students will participate in these workshops receiving the necessary information on entrepreneurship and leadership, two values that are integrated in IE University education.  The overriding aim of these lectures is to strengthen the relationship between these two institutions that believe in a rigorous academic formation based on excellency and internationalization.

The first workshop will be focused on entrepreneurship and will be moderated by IE Business School and IE University professor Peter Bryant, who will explain how to identify business ideas that build an innovative model. The second part of the event is led by Jorge Schnura, founder of Tyba, a company that was created by him and two other colleagues whilst they were studying their Bachelor degree in Business Administration at IE University. Schnura will explain the students from King´s College the key factors that required for a startup and how to make it successful. Tyba has recently announced a second round of 3.1 million dollars. The team is formed by 28 people from 16 different nationalities, ages 18 to 46.

The second workshop, held in Segovia,  will deal with leadership; David Goodman and Tara Wernsing , both professors from IE University, will present an ample program not  only looking at the responsibility of the leader but also at the sustainability of leadership and the key points of “authentic leadership.”
