DEFINE YOUR OWN CAREER PATH

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.

Talent & Careers - What We do | IE University

What we do

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.

Talent & Careers - What We offer | IE University

What we offer

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.

Stepping Up

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.

YOUNG CORPORATE PROGRAM

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.
