Madrid, July 24th 2013. The Women in Business (WIB) Club and IE Centre for Diversity celebrated the opening of the WIB Mentoring Program on 24 July 2013. The event introduced a prestigious opportunity open to all IE students especially women, to be mentored by a business leader in Madrid.

9406450095_fb281d829e_oThe event was opened by the Australian Ambassador to Spain, Jane Hardy, who presented the key note speech on mentoring, its benefits and her mentoring experiences. IBM´s Executive Director of Marketing, Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility for Spain, Portugal, Greece and Israel, Ana García-Oliveros, and Board Member of technological, financial and industrial companies, Indalecio Gil, gave a panel discussion on different types of mentoring and how to maximise value from a mentoring relationship. Director of the IE Centre for Diversity in Global Management Celia de Anca moderated the discussion. WIB President, Karla Guerrero, then presented the WIB Mentoring Program to attendees. The event was attended by several mentors, former mentees of the program and over 40 students interested in the WIB Mentoring Program from a broad cross section of IE´s Masters programs. Participants socialised following the presentations and met the mentors at a cocktail event hosted by the IE Centre for Diversity.

9409203902_5d728abb2d_oApplications for the WIB Mentoring Program has now closed. We are now assessing the best mentees who will represent not just themselves, but WIB and IE. Successful applicants will be required to meet with their mentor at least once a month, keep a journal to track their mentoring progress and attend WIB/ IE Centre for Diversity events every few months to monitor the program´s progress and allow mentees to network with each other. Successful applicants are expected to meet these commitments and maintain the mentoring relationship for the duration of their masters program. If you are interested in the WIB club or being mentored by a leader in the Madrid business community at a future date, then please contact us at the FB Event Page, WIB Page or Centre for Diversity Page (see below).

The 4th edition of ieTalks!

Written on September 5, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities

IE proudly presents to you the 4th edition of ieTalks! – an events series that has been exclusively designed to give IE students a platform where they can discuss current affairs, share their experiences, and feed off of each other’s points of view in an intimate setting outside the classroom.

On September 19th ieTalks! will introduce the topic Consulting: the real professional experience. The session is meant to share with your peers your professional experiences and give insight on what someone can expect from the Consulting labor market.

CALL TO ACTION: If students happen to be interested in being considered as a potential speaker, they may reach out to Melisa.Lelliott@ie.edu  (IMBA Team) or their class representatives by sending them their CVs with a short paragraph on the experience they would like to share. Consequently the reps would report back to the ieTalks! Committee, which is composed of IE students and staff, who would collectively cast a vote on the final two speakers. 

It would be helpful to get this information before September 8th so that the ieTalks! Committee has enough lead-time to select two suitable speakers whom we can prepare the talk with.

Thank you in advance for your efforts in helping us create a meaningful event for the IE Community.

Chinese Banquet by IE China Club

Written on July 26, 2013 by Campus Life in Geographic

Chinese banquetThe Chinese Banquet was a grand IE gathering organized by IE China Club and initiated by our club coordinators.  The banquet was held at one of the best Chinese restaurants in Madrid, El Bund. A set of more than a dozen courses were served including Peking Duck, Shrimps Beefs and all kinds of delicious Chinese meals were just overwhelming according to the attending guests, our fellow IE students.

Our efforts had achieved a group offer of an attractive price and around 80 people in total came to this banquet. During the event we had the exclusive use of the secret garden of the mentioned restaurant, and similar activities initiated by IE China Club coordinators had been wildly popular among all IE programs. Our objective is to bridge the gap between different cultures via gourmet experience, which is a quite efficient and simple way to enhance our friendship among different nationalities.

Such activities will be continued with more creativity and choice in order to offer a better experience for our IE community. Last but not least, gastronomy is just the starting point, but the objective is to achieve cultural understanding.

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.

1008339_10200637027743113_131813590_oWords has it that every year there would be a new book published saying that China’s economy is going to sink but actucally there have already been more than a dozen or so in the market while Chinese Economy is still growing.

Such comments just came from the conference deliverd by Mr.Howard Davis, Dean of Hong Kong’s Polytecnic University and a brilliant professor who just walked the “Camino de Santiago” before he came to Maria de Molina 31 to share with about 50 IE students his insights on Hongkong’s Economy on June 24th, 2013. The event turned out to quite a vivid conversation and the feedback of the attending students had been overwhelming. Mr.Howard Davis’s humorous lecture style and abundant knowledge made the the speech very useful for background filling on the whole subject of Hon Kong’s Economy, actucally, a lecture like this is worth a fortune, because Mr.Davis only does it for Senior Business classes back in his university, so basically the attendants had the luck to save 1 plane-ticket to Hongkong.

The event was a part of the lecture series that IE China Club is planning to bring on IE Campus and it’s an effort of trying to build outside class contents that are in line with one of the world’s most heated topics – Chinese market. More is to be continued as IE China Club is working on arranging to repeat the success, so interested students please widen your eyes and register when our next bomb comes out!
