At IE University, we believe that what you learn outside the classroom is just as important as what you learn in the classroom. That’s why we make sure every student has endless opportunities to expand their cultural, personal, and professional horizons.
With our exchange programs, for example, you can study at any of our partner universities across the globe and open yourself up to a whole new culture or language—something that’s becoming more and more important in our increasingly interconnected and globalized world. We also have our special IEU Labs, a hands-on and internship-like experience on campus that helps you learn extra skills and better prepares you for your future career.
There are also more than 120 clubs to help you find like-minded people who share your hobbies and interests. Ranging from theater to sports, academia, and more, there’s something for everyone.
Studying abroad is just one of the many ways IE University allows you to discover global perspectives and gain cross-cultural insights. The chance to live and study in another country will open you up to new possibilities, ideas, and worldviews. It’s a life-changing experience that will stay with you long after graduation.
The IE University experience involves much more than academic studies. Our practice-based methodology takes you beyond the classroom walls and straight to the frontlines of the industry you’re passionate about. We offer an exceptional range of opportunities that allow you to tailor your studies to your specific career goals and enhance your employability by obtaining extra qualifications.
Students receive academic guidance from tutors and advisors who provide direction, encouraging the integration of the different degree elements. Build a personalized academic program that matches your professional aspirations.
IEU Labs are IE University’s alternative to traditional internships. Designed for first- and second-year students seeking high-level internship placements, the IE Labs provide a hands-on, internship-like, on-campus experience, where you work on projects for leading companies and institutions in a variety of sectors.
Holding them as one of its pillars, IE University understands the Humanities are key to understanding the reality of our world, and applying critical thinking skills to complex, global challenges. Students can select which Humanities course to complete, based on their interests.
The Behavior Lab is a unique initiative designed to offer students a practical way to apply their knowledge to real business settings. The program welcomes students from all our bachelor’s programs and actively seeks to promote collaboration among diverse teams.
By partnering with real-world organizations such as businesses, NGOs and government bodies, the Behavior Lab provides students with the opportunity to create solutions to pressing issues in the industry. Students will tackle a wide range of topics including developing new products, transforming consumer behavior and improving hybrid work.
The program is split into two periods; from January to May, students research the organization and its challenges, followed by a period of developing recommendations for the organization in June.
Up to 45 students can participate each year, making it an excellent opportunity for those looking to work in a collaborative and innovative environment while gaining hands-on experience in solving real-world problems.
Behavioral science uses a range of research methods to study human behavior and its underlying mechanisms. Some common methods used in behavioral science include surveys and questionnaires, observational studies, controlled experiments, case studies, among others.
