IE BOTW on the roof top of the Hotel Puerta de America

Written on July 26, 2013 by Campus Life in Social

OPuerta America Junene of the best spots of seeing Madrid from the top is the roof of Hotel Puerta de America. So we decided to choose the venue as one of  BOTW places for June, starting early in order to enjoy the sunset over the MADcity.

Puerta America June3

Students from different IE programs gathered there to enjoy the wide variety of cocktails at discounted prices, and the nice music surrounded.

Some students went to the CAPEA on the same Puerta America June2day, the famous Spanish tradition.  Some went home to change, some just came the way they were dressed, directly with the buses from the CAPEA event. The 5 star hotel citizens were a bit surprised while they were taking the elevator, but we are IE students… we like surprising!It was again a great night, lots of shouts of laughter, lots of new friends in different places on earth, lots of fun and getting together.

Thanks all of you for coming and making this great night happen.

Interview with a Club: IE Spanish Outreach Club

Written on July 15, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Social

Who are we?

The mission and objectives we aim are to promote and make discover our fellow colleagues the great aspects of the spanish culture, in terms of traditions, gastronomy, history, art and, in general, spanish lifestyle. Our intention is to organize as many events and visits as possible, in order to help dig deeper in the qualities of one of the most ancient cultures in the world. In effect, we try to balance the time among these activities to get a taste of everything that Spain has to offer.

I am a finance professional with 6 years of experience combining postgraduate academic preparation and ‘real-world’ experience in Spain and France. After graduating in Law and Economics in the University of Navarra, I moved to Paris to study a Master in Finance in HEC Paris during a year. Later I worked for Deustche Bank in Madrid and Barclays Bank in Toulouse (France) from 2008 until 2011. Then I returned to Madrid to work in transactions consulting for Ernst & Young before entering the IMBA in November 2012. I enjoy meeting new people and I feel the IE Spanish Outreach club is the best opportunity to make the best of my culture and share it with all my fellows during this IE experience.

I came into the world to be an architect, and after I had become one I realized that I keep on wanting to be and do more things. Currently I am studying the MIM because I want to keep on expanding my knowlede and challenge myself constantly. My enterprenuer spirit has never let me take a break from life. I have started my own architect firm, and architect association and a marmalade company. On the weekeds I work as an architect guide and in my “spare time” I am an assistant professor at ETSAM university and mentor in a programm for students.

As some people say to me, I am hiperactive, but it is only when I am doing things I really like that I put the energy and time.

The IE SPANISH OUTREACH CLUB is my next challenge, and having the opportunity to share this experience with all of the IE members is a great opportunity.

IE BOTW Beer Olympics

Written on July 10, 2013 by Campus Life in Social

beer-olympics5It has now been almost 3 months since the inaugural Beer Olympics was held at O’Connors Bar (C/ Almagro, 3) on April 19th. For those of you who did not attend it or weren’t here yet, you really don’t know what you missed. It was a flash from the past… That is, if your past included a fraternity or house parties with drinking games. For the newbies it was a good chance to explore their inner freshman that was never given a fair chance. By midnight there was a beer pong tournament being played by seasoned veterans on a plywood covered pool table: regulation size.

beer-olympics4Several makeshift tables were used to train up and coming athletes, upstairs and down. The whole bar was taken over with inspirational athleticism.

Meanwhile, in the other room teams were competing in flip cup round by round. Of The Week Team was successful from the beginning till the end, upsetting the competition with a commanding lead right from the start. Team Captain Jim Rand was quoted as saying “This is my house!”. Someone is yet to prove him wrong. And that, my friends, is an official challenge for the next Beer Olympics.   

beer-olympics3The next games have not yet been officially planned, but they are sure to show up again before the die hard BOTW crew calls it a year. More games are planned. Blind Man’s Stumble anyone? Perhaps some balancing acts? Maybe even a keg stand? Anyone got any other bright ideas? Join IE Bar Of The Week Facebook Page and submit your suggestions: not only for Beer Olympics, but for other events as well. Try to be creative, eh?

Lots of love,

IE BOTW Team
