Last Wednesday 21st, IE International Trade Club had a very special invitee: Mr. Yves Saint-Geours, Ambassador of France in Spain, who gave us a glimpse of how France is taking part in the EU’s foreign policy. Nowadays EU is an active actor in foreign affairs and the influence of France is quite important and useful.

After the speech, several attendees had the chance to pose questions to Mr. Saint-Geours to get to know his point of view about France and EU’s foreign affairs related issues.

IE International Trade Club organized a conference at IE Business School held by Mr. Jose Manuel (Mabo) Boccardo, Senior Management Consultant at Project Management Enablers S.L.

La Taquiza

Written on December 20, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

During the month of September Mexico suffered two major earthquakes, the first one on September 7 with a magnitude of 8.2 affecting mainly the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca and the second on September 19 (31 years after the fateful earthquake of 19 September 1985) which damaged the states of Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City.

When we heard the tragic news, we worried about our loved ones, at the beginning it was difficult to contact them and know they were well. As soon as more news arrived, we realized the magnitude of the tragedy and each minute that passed increased the sadness and the impotence of not being in Mexico and helping those affected by the earthquake.

From the abovementioned, it was that the IE Mexico Club and all our Mexican IMBA colleagues decided to organize a series of events with the aim of raising the largest amount of funds and use them to help the victims of earthquakes and focusing efforts on the reconstruction of the affected areas.

Being one of the most important events “La Taquiza” in which we managed to raise more than 800 euros which will be used for the reconstruction of the affected areas of Puebla, Morelos and Mexico City.

To organize “La Taquiza” we have the support of several Mexicans, especially the IMBA and MIM of the January 2017 intake who supported donating sodas, waters, beers or cash. In addition, we must thank Las Mañanitas because without their support this great event could not have been carried out. During the event, we offered beers, water, soft drinks for two euros and a plate with three tacos beans and rice for the amount of 6 euros.

As a Mexican, I will always be grateful to all the IE Family who participated in the event, showing their support, solidarity and good wishes, which confirms once again the great solidarity that exists within the IE Community. After all the support received in this difficult stage of the IMBA I know that the IE Community is a great family, that always supports you in difficult moments.

Finally, in the Annex to this document, we can see some photos of the event that show the great support of this great IE Family.

Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore
Scary witches at your door
Jack-O-Lanterns grinning bright

USA Club Blog – Second USA Club Event – Club Fair

Written on November 17, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

I joined my fellow American board members for the October 9th club fair at MM4. Our January intake had previously held the club fair in the Launch Pad of MM31, so I was curious how big of a turn out there would be.

The place was packed! Many different clubs, with club members sharing their pride for their group with potential members. And unlike before, there were potential members from all the different IE programs, not just IMBA.

The USA Club was on fire! Andres, looking very dapper and professional, was making moves left and right, talking with people and signing them up for our club. Adi was all over the venue meeting people, infecting classmates with our unique, exciting and fun American spirit. Lauren, our fearless leader, looked resplendent in a multicolored dress which perfectly personified the beauty of diversity we value so highly in the United States. I did my best just to keep up with these fine Americans as I met interesting new people from so many different countries and programs.

By the end of the night we had shared several Mahous with our classmates, (I had a funky bottled “lemonade” I’ve never seen before and may choose not to try again) and wound up with a great long list of new members. Walking around, it looked like the other clubs had had a awesome night as well. Everyone there had smiles on their faces as they chowed down on the free popcorn and sipped the free cold brewskis.

My favorite part of IE is our diversity and the USA Club is working awesomely, as one piece of that beautiful diversity tapestry!

Until next time amigos!
