  1. If the total number of candidatures (the members of the board staying + new candidates) is less or equal to 6 after 7 pm on April 29th, no elections will be required and the 3 new candidates will be announced members of the new board of the club.
  2. In case the total number of new candidates is less than 3, more than 3 members of the previous board can stay for the next term of office, always given that the total number of members of the board does not exceed 6 coordinators.
  3. If the total number of candidatures (the members of the board staying + new candidates) is bigger than 6, the club will have to organize elections in order to determine the new board.

 Elections: 4 rules to remember

  1. If there are more than 6 candidatures for the board of a club, elections are necessary.

We are looking for entries from musicians who think that they have got what it takes to create a song which is original and represents the true spirit of IE – one world with a diversity of minds. Please look at the rules below for more details.

It is a great opportunity for all musicians to make use of their skills to create a song for IE that will go on to become the IE Anthem. It would be a great pride for the winner to see their work of art being the symbol of IE.

The competition opens from today and the last date for sending entries is May 10, 2013. Three finalists will be selected and asked to perform their composition ion Madrid Campus from which the winner will be decided.

  • The entry should be sent in an MP3 format to the club coordinator email ID – naggarwal.imba2013@student.ie.edu.

In the event of using music, sound or texts of third parties, participants guarantee that such elements are in the public domain or, otherwise, that they have the due authorization from the legitimate owners. Participants accept, with respect to IE, any liability arising from non-compliance with these declarations and guarantees.   

IE reserves the right to demand that participants accredit their ownership of the project submitted.

Interview with a club: IE Social Club & IE BOTW

Written on April 2, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Social

IE Social Club CoordinatorsWho are we?

IE Social Club has a unique mission, not to stand alone, but instead to work with all other clubs at IE to recruit for events and help enhance your experience. Bar of the Week is a weekly event we host at a fun establishment in Madrid that all IE students can look forward to attending and meeting new people. Throughout your time at IE you develop very tight-knit groups with peers in your own program but this gives students exposure to like-minded students you may not otherwise meet.

Current Coordinators

Selva Dilek Oztaskin – Istanbul, Turkey- Master in Visual Media Communication
Betsy Ditrinco – Rochester, NY – Master in Visual Media Communication
Estrella Jaramillo – Córdoba, Spain – Master in Corporate Communication
Jim Rand – Vancouver, Canada – International Masters in Business Administration
Bhuvan Rustagi – Delhi, India, International Masters in Business Administration

Club Activities

As IE Social Club, our aim is to help the rest of the clubs, create an atmosphere where the students and the alumni can share their experiences and help each other. We do get-togethers weekly under the name of Bar Of The Week, so that we can meet and introduce students from different masters and also alumni who already experienced the IE student life.

Our Vision

IE Social Club Coordinators 3We are thinking about doing bigger events where we can host the maximum amount of students and alumni in special venues, doing very well prepared get-togethers. We would like to keep up to date all our contacts so in the future some students might be able to find a good match with one of them and work together in their future jobs. A company needs people from all areas, from the administration to communication, so why shouldn´t IE students count with each other while they are opening their businesses or looking for the right person in any field in the company they work for? IE Social Club´s activities are the places to meet and maintain the contact with each other. We will do our best to create the best atmosphere of friendship and hopefully this will last for long years.

Get in touch and participate!

You can contact us through IE Communities, on Facebook through the page IE Bar of the Week (BOTW) or by email for any questions regarding collaboration with the club or suggestions. We are open to any kind of suggestions about helping the other clubs, creating an event or collaborating with the get-togethers.
