    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.

    Internships

    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, and they know it: during the 2020/2021 academic year, we signed around 1,600 internship contracts.

    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.
