Our graduates share their IE experience

Written on July 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Other Activities

pérez encinasAntes del IE, era una persona con experiencia profesional, pero con una mente muy estrecha, trabajaba movido por la intuición, tomando las decisiones en función de lo que parecía siempre la mejor opción. Gracias al IE he adquirido muchos de los conocimientos que ahora fundamentan todas esas decisiones, gracias al IE estoy creciendo a nivel profesional y he abierto mi mente, pero sobre todo gracias al IE he crecido como persona y esto es gracias a mis compañeros, que a lo largo del curso pasaron a ser amigos y que mañana cuando nos  graduemos serán parte de mi familia.

Pero además gracias al IE he conocido a la persona de la que hoy estoy enamorado y con la que quiero compartir mi futuro.

Sin duda la mejor experiencia de mi vida, en el mejor año de mi vida.”

The entire IE Mexico Club, and the Mexican community at IE, were extremely excited about this event, considering there had not been a mexican party on IE since 2012, therefore the expectations were high, and the whole mexican community wanted show, what a great and organized mexican club is capable of.

The tickets were sold on the launchpad during two weeks, thanks to all the help of IE campus life, always being in touch with the organizer, and helping them facilitate, all the diverse tools that are needed to create a great event linked to an international community, such as IE; and overall, the event created a very unique ambiance that brought together all the diverse programs and clubs inside IE.

People from all over the world were completely excited with this even happening, and participated in all the diverse contests and games organized by the IE Mexico club. In order to communicate the event effectively, social media activations, together with gifts and picture contests were celebrated, which added a lot to the expectations of the whole IE business school

The event was a complete success, thanks to the support of all the students, Teatro Barceló was completely filled, and everybody enjoyed diverse and, very cool activities during the party, including Mariachi music, mexican traditional dances, and diverse decorations.

We appreciate IE business school, and the whole IE community for supporting this great event.
