Global Village – The world in one single place

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

With more than 90 nationalities together, IE Business School is a melting pot of cultures. That’s why, every year, the Net Impact Club organizes an event to celebrate this rich cultural diversity with joy and fun, the Global Village. A magical event where the geographic clubs present a little about their culture, with music, dance, food and drinks.

In 2016, when I was president of Brazil Club, the event took place on a sunny Thursday of June and brought together 500 people to celebrate diversity. Of course, Brazil Club had a booth there! We managed to make it an amazing day, with a presentation of capoeira, pão-de-queijo, brigadeiro, guaraná, and açaí.

It was an incredible event, not only because we could show our culture, but also because we could see and live a little of the culture of different countries. I enjoyed every second as much as possible and tried things that I had never seen before. And I loved it!

See in this link some photos of that magical day taken by Alessandra Aroeira, our photographer in Brazil Club.

Brazil Club – By Guilherme Ubiali

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Professional, Social

Last year, 2016, was very special to me, because I did my international MBA, a dream that I have since college. One of the things that I most liked about the MBA was the opportunity to participate in the clubs; I was a member of several clubs such as FMCG, Public Speaking, E-commerce, and HealthCare, but it was at the Brazil Club that I participated more.

I am passionate about my country, so as soon as I arrived in IE I talked with the coordinators of Brazil Club to help them. I started as a member, then gained more responsibilities and ended up being one of the main organizers of the first Brazilian Party of the year (Spring 2016). The coordinators, seen my dedication to the club, talked with me about the possibility of being a coordinator too, and maybe president of the club. I embraced the idea and started looking for friends who wanted to go on this journey with me, I knew that alone it would be impossible to do everything, so I set up a very strong team of coordinators that supported me when I was elected president of the club in May 2016.

Being President of the club was not only an honor for representing my country but also an incredible opportunity to learn. I could practice leadership and teamwork, organize events, do networking and promote our country. During the period that I was president, we did the welcome event for new Brazilian students, and the second Brazilian Party of the year (Fall 2016), this time with “samba” dancers. We also did a traditional Brazilian barbecue and several social events for the members.

In partnership with Area 31, we supported the launch of the book of the Brazilian professor Newton Campos, we participated in the magical Global Village and we organized the master event of the year, a lecture of one of the most famous Brazilian’s journalists, Eliane Cantanhêde, to talk about the political situation in Brazil.

And now I finish my period as coordinator with joy and gratefulness for the support I received from all the members, especially the partners I had as coordinators with me; Daniel, Gabriela, Carol, Bruno, and Alexandre.

IE Gastronomy

Written on June 1, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Professional, Social

We would like to tell you about the new IE Gastronomy website, an initiative centered on the principles of “Management, Nutrition & Welfare”. The idea behind IE Gastronomy is to share gastronomic experiences and the benefits they bring at both, a personal and professional level, including our students, our more than 50,000 alumni, and everyone with links to our key sponsor´s and other collaborating companies. This integrated knowledge of gastronomy provides a differential value and will bring a healthy experience that complements the academic learning process. You can access the full content of this initiative by registering with your IE email account (please note: you will need to verify your account through a link that will be sent to your email in order to ensure the authenticity of the accountholder).
 
IE Gastronomy has also developed a series of modules led by renowned professionals – cardiologists like Valentín Fuster, world famous chefs like Ferran Adrià, or nutritionists like Gregorio Varela or  José María Ordovás. These modules will include:

– Global vision of gastronomy
– Gastronomy and health
– The impact of gastronomy on economic and tourism sectors
– Sociology and culture
– The importance of education in the field of gastronomy
– Gastronomy in the digital era.
 
The IE Gastronomy website features sections centered around the three basic pillars of food – eating, eating healthily, and knowing how to eat – coupled with a section on current trends and related news items, events, recommended publications, and a review of press activity in the sector, from Spain and worldwide. It also offers a complete guide of restaurants and a section dedicated to guest firms in the form of interviews, reflections, and videos, like Rafael Ansón’s, “Gastronomic Minute”.

The challenge of this project, headed by Rafael Anson, President of Spain’s Royal Academy for Gastronomy, is to integrate knowledge of food and nutrition into the educational system, coupled with taste apprenticeship, the overarching aim is to improve the quality of life of the IE community, its staff, students, alumni, and partnering firms.
