Name: Chiara
Nationality: Italy/Belgium
Program: Bachelor Of Laws (LL.B.) '15
My Word For IE University: Original


Before coming to university, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to study so I considered my strongest skills and interests and thought about how I could incorporate them into my studies. I decided that law would be a great path but I realized it was going to be difficult to pursue an international career, knowing that legal studies are generally based on national law. I was looking for something completely uncommon: an international law bachelor. After doing some research, I finally found this program at IE University and I knew it would meet my expectations. This bachelor is unique as it offers comparative law, where both common and civil law are studied and this will enable me to continue an international education path and an international career thereafter. 

This university is distinctive as they implement a forward-looking view in their teaching methods and subjects. The number of students per class is small which creates an exclusive atmosphere, better understanding and a unique relationship between classmates and teachers. IE University focuses on providing us the best tools to be prepared for a future career. The emphasis that they put on the practical side of our studies has enabled me to feel more confident and more aware of how things will be when I graduate rather than only transmitting theoretical knowledge. I am sure that the education I receive at IE University will help me reach my goals because of their advanced and innovative view on what today’s market needs.

Next week IE will be hosting the #Madrid edition of #IEVentureDay , with discussions, presentation and business pitches being scheduled for the entirety of Thursday the 13th of November. Bringing together early-stage start-ups created by students and alumni of IE's Undergraduate, Masters and Executive programs, IE Venture Day is a chance for these budding companies to announce their presence to investors, companies and members of the public while making an impression on the judiciary panel. 

This year, the torch-carriers for the entrepreneurial spirit at IE University will be Pich Technologies. Created by BBA students Munya Gwisai and Ignacio Gamoneda, Pich Technologies aims to streamline the process of sharing information between banks and companies, saving time and resources. With the launch of the company’s beta scheduled for later this month, Munya and Ignacio are hoping to use their presence at IE Venture Day to raise their second round of seed funding in addition to finding partners who are willing to make the most of their unique financial solutions. You can read more about the company at their official website included and don’t forget to follow them on Twitter at @PichTech. See you at IE Venture Day next Thursday!

Name: Carina
Nationality: German
Program: Bachelor in Business Administration
Class of ‘14

I chose IE University because it was offering an English degree in a Spanish speaking country. During my time at here, my classmates and I founded the Skill Development Club. Running these activities taught be a lot about planning and team management has already played a part in my life, helping me secure my current full-time job at P&G in Germany.

The broad curriculum allowed me to get a taste of all fields of business and let me find the one field I felt truly passionate about. The environment and mentality at IE University taught me how to achieve things myself if I want them to happen; if I had concrete plans, there was always a willing listener and plenty of encouragement to pursue my ideas. I never imagined choosing to work in the IT industry, but after learning about its applications in business it is something I would love to pursue.

My advice to freshmen - you’re out in the world, make the most of it! I would not recommend doing an internship after your first year, but there are still plenty of options to choose for your personal development. Learn a language, do summer school, volunteer work, or even just travel. Use your time in Spain to learn all you can about the Spanish culture and way of life.

Name: Lijia
Nationality: Chinese
Degree: Bachelor of Architecture
Graduating Year: Class of ‘18

My word for IE University: Kaleidoscopic.

I was born in Sanming, China, where I spent the first five years of my life. before moving with my family to Milan, Italy. I chose IE University because it offers a really unique internship program for my bachelor, while also giving us a chance to take on courses that are not strictly about architecture. The size of classes in the university provide another dimension to learning, and it lets us have a more involved relationship with our professors.

Living among such a diverse group of people gives me the opportunity to learn and understand different cultures, to make friends from very different places. I believe that nowadays you cannot just specialize in one study area, but you need to be aware of what is going on around you in the world, and I am glad that many people throughout  this university share this idea.

Name: João
Nationality: Portuguese
Program: BBA
Describe IEU in one word: Opportunity


The university provided the mental platform that helped get where I am now. If it weren’t for the teachers, advisors and people who I met and fostered relationships with, I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today. IE University encouraged me to learn, think and create. Throughout my learning process I met some of the most brilliant people and professors who I now call friends. All of this meant a lot of classroom time, conferences, brainstorming, internships, traveling and research. Bottom line for me is that the human factor at IE University is what helped grow. Of all the ideas I was working on during my time here, one prevailed and I founded a flight school in Portugal, a project I have been working on since 2012.

I would tell any prospective students that ‘if you think risk appetite runs in your blood, come to IE University.’ If you are ready to take on challenges and do a lot of “mental workout”, IE will benefit you. The university’s benefits are beyond education. Few will understand what that means right now, and it might take more than the duration of the degree to actually understand it completely. But I would do it all over again.

Name: Fernando
Nationality: Spanish
Program: Bachelor in Architecture
My word for IEU: Diversity

Before I came to IE I devoted a lot of time to my passion for architecture through drawing, with some of my 3D modelling for buildings appearing on Google Earth. I chose IE University over the others because of its international profile and the belief in a personal way to learn through the implementation of my skills. The small classes let me interact with exceptional people, whom I got to know both professionally and as unique human beings. My dream has always been the creation of my own architecture firm, and I have started working towards making this a reality with people I have met at this university.

I feel lucky to have have worked and lived in Madrid, Barcelona and Paris during my internship periods over the last three years. Each destination presented me with a short period of time in which I could learn through exploration.

If I were to start again, I would meet people from more cultures, ways of thinking, and walks of life. Be proactive; propose, plan and carry out your own initiatives inside and outside the university. Lastly, I recommend that you always bring your personal feelings and vision to everything you do. Make each task yours.
