Social Responsability Forum 2017

Written on November 6, 2017 by Campus Life in Professional, Social

On 25th October the IE Net Impact Club welcomed more than 150 students and industry thought leaders to its 12th Social Responsibility Forum, “Driving Innovation Around Responsible Business.” The forum, which took place at Aula Magna and Paper Pavillion started with a keynote from Asylbek Kozhakhmetov, Founder & President of Almaty Management University, Kazakhstan. The keynote was followed by a series of concurrent discussions around the topics of driving change in different sectors, leveraging Tech for Innovations in Responsibility and Investing for Impact.

The participants met with industry leaders, luminaries, and members of social impact community. Some of the companies and businesses that were present at the forum were Auara, PwC Spain, BBVA, Impact Hub Madrid, Gjosa & Smixin, Bscale and Bridge for Billions.

Gilles Vromman, Master in Management student, said “As a participant, I was impressed by the diversity of perspectives included: it was truly all-round insight into the topics at hand.”

The IE Net Impact Club would like to thank all those that made the event happen so successfully including all the speakers and coordinators, our sponsors, volunteers, attendees and of course, Campus Life.


Rolex MBA Regatta

Written on October 10, 2017 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

In the end of September, the IE Sailing club once again gathered together IE current students and alumni from all parts of the world to join the final event of the MBA Regatta season in Europe – the Rolex MBA Conference and Regatta 2017. In the beautiful Liguria region, at the port of Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, during three days 400 participants, from 20+ business schools, sailed, networked and enjoyed the Italian coast. That weekend was the first touch with sailing for many of the participants and as usual for MBA sailing events skilled sailors willingly shared their knowledge and experience, hence many novices fell in love with sailing forever. Sailing gathers an extraordinary crowd of people who sail, smile and party to cater for an unforgettable experience, and this regatta was no exception. It was an excellent opportunity to accomplish three things simultaneously – practice or learn about sailing; meet alumni and current students both from IE and some of the other 20 business schools and enjoy the marine lifestyle and exclusive locations of the Rolex MBA Regatta. Looking forward to seeing you in the first event of the MBA sailing season in 2018 – the IE winter regatta. (link here to post about IE regatta).

Earth Hour – IE Energy Club

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Social

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

IE Energy Club President with the winner

The event is held annually encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on a specific day towards the end of March, as a symbol of commitment to the planet. It was started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns across 172 countries. This year Earth Hour was held on March 25th from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

For encouraging more and more people to celebrate the Earth Hour and to increase awareness among everyone regarding the importance of mankind’s commitment towards the conservation of the planet, IE along with IE Energy Club undertook a Social Media Campaign in which participants had a chance to win an IE Backpack (sponsored by the IE Store and made from 100% recycled nylon fishing nets). The participants had to just post a photo of their IE Earth Hour on the night of March 25th on their social media account using the hashtag #IEEarthHour – switch off your lights and switch on your social power to #ChangeClimateChange.

From the many entries received, the winner of the IE Earth Hour photo competition was Fernando Castallo, Master in Management February 2017 student. These kinds of initiatives are very necessary for the conservation of planet Earth.


“Walk With Us” campaign

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Social

Thanks to the support of the IE community who contributed to our efforts to raise funds for the “Walk With Us” campaign, which included a pizza and drinks sale in June. Together, we have raised and donated US$500 to contribute to this amazing cause in South Africa.

Walk With Us is an effort initiated by Tom David and Warren Handley, two young South African men who became sensible to a cause and now want to raise awareness, so that no vulnerable children will ever walk alone. Their cause: abandoned children with ECD and orphans. They have decided to walk 6,000 km by foot from Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, all the way to Johannesburg in South Africa. All of this with a budget below the poverty line of US$2 per day, to raise funds that will be donated to the cause that has guided their hearts along the way.

Please visit the following link to listen to a special message from Tom and Warren.
