IE Fashion Club 2018

Written on July 17, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

Fashion helps us express ourselves in a unique way as well as defines who we are. It is about expressing our very own personality.

Fashion helps us show who we are and can be a tool of self-empowerment.

Our aim has been helping students connect with current trends and professionals in the fashion industry, giving them the opportunity to exchange thoughts and networking.

During these past four months the IE Fashion Club has brought in speakers from various areas of fashion. Cosmetics, Fashion Editorial Magazines, Entrepreneurs and Digital & Tech.

After the summer we would love to take a step further and organize more (and more interactive) activities, such as visits to ateliers, store visits around the city to discover the newness and trends, etc.

We hope that all of you who attended these talks enjoyed it. More to come after the summer.

Happy Summer!

In many ways this is the most wonderful time of the year, it is summer, we are graduating. It is time to reflect on what the last year brought to our lives, to explore the opportunities this transformation brings.

We have been through some nice events over the last 10 months: Started with Digitalising Everything moved to the signature TechIE event continued with Unleashing Creativity in Fintech; then we pondered on the Culture that brings about sustainable innovation and finished with disrupting the Hospitality industry. Yes we have had our happy hours and break drinks in between too.

Now is the time to celebrate our successes irrespective how small they are. It is time to give thanks to our fellow club members for bearing with us over the last year.

An opportunity for students to hear, discuss and network with speakers with different backgrounds, expertise, and interests on some of the challenges in Fintech and to explore how technology and creativity can be used to tackle them.

Executives from 3 leading companies will debate recent trends in Fintech that drive innovation (new technologies, client centricity) and the role of creativity in it.

Stay tuned for an engaging debate with our speakers: Paolo Sironi, Alberto Barreiro and Alberto Lopez Gonzalez

Yes we have had our happy hours and break drinks in between too.

Now is the time to celebrate our successes irrespective how small they are. It is time to give thanks to our fellow club members for bearing with us over the last year.

It is also time to do things differently. We have welcomed some amazing coordinators this January. A big applause for them and we wish them the energy to carry the Technology and Innovation club through one more year. Furthermore, we have merged with IEU Computer Society Club. It is really amazing to be able to engage with students at different stages of their life and education.

Our club is changing and evolving and to new circumstances and demands from the IE students.

And it is never too late to be curious. Do not only look for but expect miracles. Have someone noticed the unicorn from our last event ? Look at the picture on the left for the ones who missed it.

We wish you to follow your heart, trust your intuition use your common sense and be curious about technology and innovation. Still we want to highlight that innovation and technology without the human at the centre is not enough as all those technologies and innovations are to be used and serve us the human beings. As such we are the creators of the world. We cannot create a future we cannot imagine.

Come to celebrate the end of the year with us Tomorrow Wednesday 18th of July at the WareHouse@TheHClub. [RSVP:300014772]

IE USA Club Madrid Chapter 2018

Written on July 17, 2018 by Campus Life in Geographic

As our term as board members come to an end, the USA Club would like to reflect on its accomplishments. Our mission as a club was to focus our efforts on giving our members the best opportunity for success. We did this by improving our relationship and involvement with Career Services. Although IE has dedicated staff searching for job opportunities, we believed the club also has the responsibilities to maximize those efforts via our own network. For example, we have started to work closely with Matthew David, who is the Associate Director, B2B/Careers/Alumni Relations for North America. Together with Matthew, we have started several initiatives to improve our communication. The club has also held join events with numerous other student clubs such as the Finance Club, the Recruitment Club and the Big Data Club. In addition, we have held several networking events aiming to encourage members to get to know each other. Most importantly, we have also tried to have fun throughout the process. We would like to thank all our members for their participation. It was a fun journey!

IE AFRICA HOST ITS FIRST CAREER FAIR

Written on July 16, 2018 by Campus Life in Geographic

Over the years, IE continues to attract some of Africa’s finest talents into its various programs. This is because IE focuses on shaping leaders with a global vision, an entrepreneurial mindset and humanistic approach to drive innovation and change in organizations. Currently there are over 350 IE alumni of African descent and about 100 African students enrolled in different programs here at IE. African talent at IE range from young professionals to seasoned executives coming from a wealth of various backgrounds and disciplines.

The IE Africa Career Fair was designed to give organizations, unique access to IE’s diverse pool of African talents and members of the larger IE Community interested in opportunities in Africa. The companies at the fair were able to make presentations and engage the students in a networking session to screen potential candidates for roles currently available within their respective organizations.

The event which took place on the 24th of May, 2018, was hosted in collaboration with IE Talent and Careers and IE Campus Life. The fair focused on opportunities within the continent for African and non-African candidates seeking opportunities in the African job market.

Participating companies at this year’s event included GB Foods S.L. (FMCG), AEE Power (Engineering Solutions), ThirdWay Africa (Private Equity), One Acre Fund (NGO) and Movemeback (Recruitment Services).

GB Foods S.L is a Spanish multinational organization with a growing presence in East and West Africa, the company recently began expanding its operations in West Africa and had a number of mid-level roles open for African candidates.

The presentation by Movemeback in particular provided a lot of insight into recruitment patterns on the continent from a bird’s eye perspective, informing participants on new trends and how best to position themselves upon completion of their respective programs.

In summary, the 2018 IE Africa Career Fair was a success and the IE Africa Club wishes to thank all its friends, members and the larger IE Community for their immense support. Africa continues to be a continent of opportunity and the IE Africa Club looks forward to sharing these experiences with the rest of the IE Community.
