Your Own Path | IE University

Your Own Path

We understand that graduating from IE University is not the end—it’s only the beginning. After leaving campus, we always get curious about how our incredible alumni are doing. So, we decided to see where they are now. Your Own Path is an exciting video series where former students tell their stories, showing us their offices, the work they do, their friends, and a little of what their routine is like. We hope these videos inspire our current students to follow their dreams and see the endless possibilities that await graduates from IE University.

We went to a number of countries including the Czech Republic, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, the USA, and Mexico to reconnect with old friends. However, our students know no limits when it comes to working in multinational environments, with many finding homes all over the globe. Keep an eye out for more videos, and, who knows, maybe you could end up working abroad with one of these exciting opportunities.





Sofia Silva

Sofia Silva Carballido knew she wanted a career which married the international relations and technology worlds, but the pathway to this was something she had to pave herself. By coming to IE University, Sofia was able to immerse herself in an international community of open-minded people interested in sharing their cultures and perspectives.

Based in London, Sofia appreciates the UK’s digital government infrastructure as well as the city’s vibrant community of artisans and creatives.



Matheus Paro

A born problem-solver, Matheus enjoys the process of working through a problem that does not have a solution rather than simply executing a formula. In his role at Amazon, he manages operations and efficiency for Amazon’s grocery home delivery service, where he has the opportunity to test ideas that can help the company improve.

Matheus recognizes that the person he was when he arrived at IE University was not who he was by the end of his time in Madrid. His approach to work and problems transformed from a notion that there was a single pathway toward finding the answer to a more nuanced mindset, open to trying various routes to a solution.

Matheus also appreciated the balance IE University encouraged between social, academic and personal life, which is something he felt he might not find at other higher education institutions. Now that he is no longer at IE University, he misses the buzz of activity and people.
