USA Club Blog – Second USA Club Event – Club Fair

Written on November 17, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

I joined my fellow American board members for the October 9th club fair at MM4. Our January intake had previously held the club fair in the Launch Pad of MM31, so I was curious how big of a turn out there would be.

The place was packed! Many different clubs, with club members sharing their pride for their group with potential members. And unlike before, there were potential members from all the different IE programs, not just IMBA.

The USA Club was on fire! Andres, looking very dapper and professional, was making moves left and right, talking with people and signing them up for our club. Adi was all over the venue meeting people, infecting classmates with our unique, exciting and fun American spirit. Lauren, our fearless leader, looked resplendent in a multicolored dress which perfectly personified the beauty of diversity we value so highly in the United States. I did my best just to keep up with these fine Americans as I met interesting new people from so many different countries and programs.

By the end of the night we had shared several Mahous with our classmates, (I had a funky bottled “lemonade” I’ve never seen before and may choose not to try again) and wound up with a great long list of new members. Walking around, it looked like the other clubs had had a awesome night as well. Everyone there had smiles on their faces as they chowed down on the free popcorn and sipped the free cold brewskis.

My favorite part of IE is our diversity and the USA Club is working awesomely, as one piece of that beautiful diversity tapestry!

Until next time amigos!

USA Club Blog – First USA Club Event – Happy Hour

Written on November 17, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

On Sunday, October 8th, the USA Club held our first Happy Hour event at Mercado de San Ildefonso. As the president of the club, I was unsure of how many attendees would make it – I’m a part of the January 2017 International MBA Intake, we have very few Americans (under 20) who are part of the program. We were surprised and excited that over 40 people from different IE programs came to the event, from several different programs including the Master in Cyber Security, Global MBA, Executive MBA, Master in Management, and Master in Real Estate Development.

One of my favorite events held by the previous USA Club chapter was the Careers in North America event this past July. The IE Career reps from the NYC office flew to Madrid and gave an excellent presentation about the career options available in the US upon completion of the MBA. This team works closely with companies in the tech, oil & gas, energy, and retail sectors to network and bring fresh opportunities to the graduates of IE’s programs. It’s so nice knowing that this team back in the US working hard to connect us with employers upon our completion of our studies from this fantastic university.

We’re looking forward to our next mixer this week, at Selfie this Thursday at 7:30pm. It’s so nice meeting the Americans who’ve crossed the ocean to further their educational development, and to start forming connections friendships that will last a lifetime! Hope to see you there!

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.
