Who are we?
The mission and objectives we aim are to promote and make discover our fellow colleagues the great aspects of the spanish culture, in terms of traditions, gastronomy, history, art and, in general, spanish lifestyle. Our intention is to organize as many events and visits as possible, in order to help dig deeper in the qualities of one of the most ancient cultures in the world. In effect, we try to balance the time among these activities to get a taste of everything that Spain has to offer.
Fernando Echeverría (President)
I am a finance professional with 6 years of experience combining postgraduate academic preparation and ‘real-world’ experience in Spain and France. After graduating in Law and Economics in the University of Navarra, I moved to Paris to study a Master in Finance in HEC Paris during a year. Later I worked for Deustche Bank in Madrid and Barclays Bank in Toulouse (France) from 2008 until 2011. Then I returned to Madrid to work in transactions consulting for Ernst & Young before entering the IMBA in November 2012. I enjoy meeting new people and I feel the IE Spanish Outreach club is the best opportunity to make the best of my culture and share it with all my fellows during this IE experience.
María Luisa de Miguel
MIM F1 (English track)
I came into the world to be an architect, and after I had become one I realized that I keep on wanting to be and do more things. Currently I am studying the MIM because I want to keep on expanding my knowlede and challenge myself constantly. My enterprenuer spirit has never let me take a break from life. I have started my own architect firm, and architect association and a marmalade company. On the weekeds I work as an architect guide and in my “spare time” I am an assistant professor at ETSAM university and mentor in a programm for students.
As some people say to me, I am hiperactive, but it is only when I am doing things I really like that I put the energy and time.
The IE SPANISH OUTREACH CLUB is my next challenge, and having the opportunity to share this experience with all of the IE members is a great opportunity.
