Net working coffee 1Net working coffee 2On Thursday, February 6th the IE Europe and Middle East Business Club kicked off with its first event: a networking coffee. The event was a great way to present the club to the IE community and share experiences and ideas about the region and the future of the club.

 Many guests were present at the event, including MIM students, MBA students, Alumni, and coordinators of other clubs from North Africa and the Middle East. While having a cup of coffee many useful insights were gained by the EME Club coordinators regarding the general interests of the IE community and the possibility of future collaborations with other Clubs. Additionally the event served the purpose of allowing students from different programs to network and exchange opinions.

 The Club coordinators are very happy with the acceptance of their first ideas and about the inputs they gained from different discussion throughout the event.

On Friday January 23, 2014 the IE Africa Club held their first African dinner of the New Year, welcoming more than 60 of their classmates to the Ethiopian restaurant Hannan in Madrid. The goal was to bring a group of IE students together to better understand and enjoy some of the great food and culture that the African continent has to offer. Students from both the November and April IMBA intakes were in attendance along with a handful of MIM students.

Africa3The night kicked off with traditional Ethiopian appetizers. During appetizers and drinks, guests were welcomed to participate in an African trivia game, which tested their knowledge of both cultural and geographic aspects of the continent. Diner was served and included an array of shared platters that held a sampling of several different Ethiopian dishes. The winning trivia team was invited to participate in a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony following dinner, where the coffee was freshly roasted and consumed.

The IE Africa Club focuses on raising awareness of the African continent, with a particular focus on business opportunity. On February 25, 2014 all students and faculty are welcome to join IE Africa Club for the annual Africa Day event. This event will bring together those interested in conducting business on the continent for an afternoon and evening of executive keynote speakers and a panel discussion on the changes necessary to sustain and improve growth in Africa. The current guest list includes several representatives from global multinationals and consultants with operations in Africa, as well as representatives from African embassies and consulates based in Madrid. We hope to see everyone there.

For those interested in trying Ethiopian food, Restaurant Hannan can be found here in Madrid at Calle de la Ventura Rodriguez 3, Madrid, Spain.
