Patricia Magdalena, the Director of Programs at IE, shares with us her ideas about the IE experience:

“If we were to stay with one of all those words that clearly defines what the IE experience is, the choice is simple: YOU! The IE experience could not exist without your energy, enthusiasm, and above all, passion. Passion not only to learn and develop your management skills during these months of continuous learning, but also to enjoy the opportunity to belong to a single community, vibrant and multicultural. All of us at IE, faculty, staff, alumni, repeat with insistence that this is a tough and intense year with long nights and many hours of study, but it is also very rewarding. New friendships are generated for life, personal transformation is experienced, and the discovery is made that a day could actually have 27 hours if we know how to use them, and that you can successfully balance the scales of personal and professional/academic life.
You are the soul of IE experience, this is not only manifested with fellowship in classrooms, work performance… but also shown in the extracurricular activities that you organize through clubs which generate groups united by common interests, in the launch of innovative entrepreneurial projects, in unique events & spontaneous laughter. Unforgettable moments which provide you with enough power to overcome successfully the program, leave an unforgettable memory of those months, and unite you forever to the spirit and Community of IE.”
