June 12th 2014 was a special day, not only because it was the World Cup opening but also because IE Business School celebrated the 9th edition of Global Village. IE Net Impact Chapter, IE and 29 different Country Clubs hosted the biggest event of the year at the IE Library garden.
Global Village is a fair organized by IE students in collaboration with the school’s administrative team whose aim is to showcase the diversity that thrives on campus everyday by having food, performances and arts and crafts in the same place for all the attendees to enjoy. The event was attended by around 650 visitors including students from all programs, partners, families and spectators.
Spectacular performances were held by different countries including dances performed by Lebanon, Peru, USA, Colombia, Brazil, Japan, China, and Mexico. Other countries like Germany and Azerbaijan were hosting competitions that were mentally and physically challenging.
IE Global Village Team and IE Net Impact Chapter would like to extend their gratitude to sponsoring Embassies, organizations and companies that supported the efforts of all our students to showcase their national heritage and pride. We would also like to thank all the students and staff members who volunteered to help organizing such an amazing event. Last but not least, we would like to thank all country clubs who participated in creating such a diversified and entertaining event.
We are grateful for all the students, partners and families that attended Global Village and we hope that everyone enjoyed their time at such a memorable day.
