THE DESIGN COUNCIL

In order to remain one step ahead of the game, we are always seeking to fill the gap between education and the real world.

This is the key to becoming unstoppable designers who are keenly aware of cutting-edge design trends and social tendencies.

Our school understands the need to form this bond and we are aware of the power that first-hand insights can bring to a sector.

For this reason, we have strived to achieve the perfect combination of professionals, industry members, and academics who work as our partners in the field in order to ensure that we are always being provided with invaluable insights and knowledge.

The Design Council at IE University is a stimulating environment in which esteemed professionals, companies, and organizations can share their knowledge and passion for design. This council is composed of three different types of members:
