Choosing a career path is one of the most important decisions our students face. So to help them make it, they have the full support of the IE Talent & Careers team, who is there to guide them and help them launch a successful career.
The IE Talent & Careers department is responsible for providing IE University students and alumni with professional guidance. Thanks to the quality tools we offer them, our continuous training, and the advice of our on-hand experts, their chances of success in the job market are much higher.
In this department, we meticulously assess students’ interests, expectations and skills in order to help them make the most important decisions for their future. At the same time, our team directly collaborates with different companies to help them find the most outstanding professionals in the market.
IE University´s international recognition, coupled with the partnerships it holds with leading companies and institutions, enables students to compete for top positions internationally. We help students launch their careers across industries and across the globe. By supporting our student´s professional and personal growth, we help them achieve success in their field of choice.
Work experience does not begin only after graduation. IE University students start to receive employment offers even before they’ve finished the program. While many alumni are recruited by major multinational companies, some prefer to join small and mid-sized companies or startups. Others go on to launch their own businesses. Each student can define their own career path based on their interests and goals—thanks to the program’s innovative curriculum, uniquely extensive internship program and practical methodology, no doors will be closed.
IE University’s international recognition, combined with our partnerships with leading companies and institutions, allows our alumni to compete for the best roles around the globe. We help them kick off their professional careers in any sector and any company globally.
The Talent & Careers team provides them with exclusive resources to find job offers that suit their goals. We act as an intermediary between students and companies, putting them in touch with leading employers at an international level. Thanks to this personalized guidance, graduates launch their careers with their best foot forward.
This guidance and support isn’t just for alumni. Seeing as many students start thinking about their professional future very early on, this service starts the day students enroll in IE University.
From students’ very first year, we give them access to an array of resources to enhance their professional profiles and boost their employability.
One of these resources is our Career Development Training (CDT), an innovative tool that lays the foundation for students’ training for the professional world. Each year, the CDT is adjusted to the profile and objectives of each group of students, since first-year students don’t need the same support as those who are finishing their studies.
There are many other resources we offer our students: Sector-specific Q&As, interview preparation, CV and cover letter revision, and more. All of this support is provided by advisors who are specialized in the different sectors in question, and carefully follow the professional evolution of their students.
Being a student at IE University gives you access to a wide range of internships—both curricular and extracurricular—thanks to the 3,243 companies we have agreements with. Our students have done internships at organizations such as MAEC, Amazon, JP Morgan, Danone and Cuatrecasas. Seizing this opportunity can be decisive for students’ futures.
At IE University, we want to help students make the leap into the professional world with ease. And we know that during the first couple years of a degree program, it’s more difficult for students to work with real companies. That’s why we created the Young Corporate Program. In the program, students are matched with a company, where they’ll work and train during various time periods throughout their degree.
