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.

 Club activities

• Since we are an ‘affinity club’, we have a unique opportunity to present activities that cut across many interests, professions, industries and regions – as long as they relate to the ‘emerging markets’. We’ve been quite active these last few months. Most recently, we hosted a panel discussion on “Luxury in the BRIC Markets”, held on January 28th and featured seasoned professionals from the luxury industry representing all four BRIC markets (Brazil, Russia, India and China) companies such as Carrera & Carrera, Loewe, Louis Vuitton and Pangea 21 International Consulting. The IE blog describes the event in detail.
• On January 17th, we co-sponsored with the IE Finance Club an “Emerging Markets Client Call”. It was a unique opportunity to listen to a live investor conference call featuring HSBC analysts from New York, London and Hong Kong present their multi-asset 2013 outlook for equities, fixed income and currencies in Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe/Middle East/Africa.
• In November, we hosted a career and job search-related panel looking at “Expat Opportunities in China, Hong Kong and Singapore”. This panel featured guest speakers from Hudson Recruiting and the China-Spain Chamber of Commerce as well as IMBA students who have lived in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

We are now looking at two upcoming events to be held this spring. The first one will focus on Sub-Saharan African growth, and for this one we will be counting with a very special guest: a faculty member. The second event will bring a series of professionals that will unlock for us the secrets of consumer behavior in South America.

The best activities develop organically from the interests of our members, so we are always looking for ideas to help us guide and inspire our event program, so please don’t hesitate to talk any of our board members if you have any suggestions for future activities.

Get in touch and participate!

You can contact us either via IE Communities or Facebook.

We highly encourage our members to share information with us relating to emerging markets.

Club activities

This year we have some exciting events lined up:

On Wednesday, March 6th we have an event called “Making More Health” regarding a collaborative effort between Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the world’s 20 leading pharmaceutical companies, and Ashoka, a global association of social entrepreneurs, to try to improve health in communities around the world. (Please register on ie.edu/alumniagenda.)

In April, we will be hosting Impact Weekend in collaboration with the Entrepreneurship Club. Impact Weekend is a social entrepreneurship competition to help budding projects develop a business plan for a social enterprise idea. This year we hope to attract entrepreneurs from other schools in Spain as well.

Net Impact will also host the annual IE favorite – Global Village.  This event celebrates the cultural diversity of IE’s student base. Each club presents some ethnic cuisine and there’s always music and performances to enjoy. It’s a lively event and is always looked forward to with great anticipation.

In November we’ll be hosting our 8th Annual Social Responsibility Forum that brings together students and professionals to discuss sustainability within the context of a variety of topics. Topics cover diverse areas such as energy, finance and entrepreneurship. We are looking for speakers to join us so if you know someone that might be a good fit, please e-mail us.

Our vision

Beyond the activities we previously discussed, we are always on the look out to plan additional panel discussions or to collaborate with other clubs to highlight sustainability issues. We envision more co-sponsored events in the future.  Last weekend, about 13-15 club members travelled to Barcelona to attend IESE’s Doing Good Doing Well conference. In regards to the event, Barbara Christina Schmaehl, a Net Impact VP, said “I particularly liked the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with other Net Impacters from around Europe.” Over the past week several of our members travelled to San Francisco, Boston, London and Dubai to participate in the prestigious Hult Global Case Challenge – a start up accelerator for social good. We wish them all the best! 

Get in touch and participate!

Join us at our next event! We are always happy to welcome new members and new ideas to our club! For more information, register with the club in IE Communities and/or email us. You can also follow the club on Facebook.
