Written on December 18, 2013 by Campus Life in Professional

Haro (2)IEOut Club organised a winery trip to Haro area in the north of Spain on 3rd of Dec. The purpose of this trip was to celebrate the end of our program as well as to understand the history of famous winery area in Spain.

La Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana (The Northern Spanish Wine Company), Cvne, was born in Haro, La Rioja. Cvne was founded by two brothers, Raimundo & Eusebio Real de Asua. By acquiring a few local winery companies, Cvne has become one of the biggest wine companies in Spain since 70s. Cvne’s current company strategy is to initiate a radical experiment, planting double the amount of wines per hectare, the objective is to reduce the production per wine, and therefore to increase the quality of its product.

Haro (1)During the trip, we visited wine factory and we have also had a wine tasting course which included 4 wines guided by an expert. Those four wines inluded Monopole, Cune Rosado, Vina Real Crianza and Vina Real Reserva. After wine tasting we arrived to Haro. Haro is a town in La Rioja province known for its fine red wine and the Haro Wine Festival. We visited Santo Tomas Church, the work of Felipe Vigamy and the old town, which was declared a Historic Artistic Site in 1975.

IEOut Club is proud of organizing numerous events throughout the year.  It has been a great experience to share our own experiences among different club members and our current members are ready to embrace the new life after the graduation.


India Night – Diwali celebration

Written on December 15, 2013 by Campus Life in Geographic

India nightEvery year, IE India Club organizes its flagship event to celebrate Diwali since Diwali is one of the most recognizable Indian festivals globally. The celebrations this year began with a small prayer to the gods for prosperity. This was followed by a small rangoli competition where teams put together traditional designs on the floor using rice powders and colors.
The winning teams were given small prizes that were handed over by the representatives of the Indian Embassy. Any Indian event is of course not complete without a full culinary experience and this was done with a good selection of starters and food representing different cuisines from India. We also served Indian beer to give a true Indian experience.
The entertainment of the night began with a flashy performance from a group of Indian girls from the Indian community at Madrid that graciously accepted to perform at our event. There were two other exciting performances by the students from IE.
The night concluded with dancing and celebrating the Indian culture and spirit. With attendance of 250 people, great food, drinks, dancing, inclusion and immersion we achieved what IE India Club set out to do – give the IE Experience an Indian flavour and celebrate as a group – a group that might be the most diverse in the world but comes together as one to celebrate that diversity.


Book presentation: “Thoughts Translated” by Goldie Nanwani

Written on December 12, 2013 by Campus Life in Geographic

“Time and time again
Slaves we were then
Bound are we now
Ticking on tomorrow
Waiting on the pendulum”

–    Goldie Nanwani

Attachment-1_Snapseed_Snapseed (Small)IE India Club Madrid Chapter had the pleasure to convene and participate in the launch of Goldie Nanwani’s book “Thoughts Translated” on the 3rd of December 2013. Goldie Nanwani is a woman of Indian origin, born and brought up in Spain, who has received her secondary and higher education in the United Kingdom. Her exposure to both the Indian and Western cultures has enabled her to spend many years understanding the differences between both.
During the event Goldie read some chosen excerpts of her book to the attendees that were themed around subjects which are deeply ingrained in our day to day lives, but we often forget to address them, due to our pressed urgency to fulfill our duties at work and other mundane activities which occupy our daily routine. This was followed by a Q&A round and Indian refreshments were made available to the attendees.  This also provided an opportunity to network with the author. There was a book sale and signing during the networking to conclude the event.
This event was very well received and we hope to engage the Indian community outside of IE much more to bring such unique experiences and paradigms to the student experience at IE Business School.
