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.

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.

IE BOTW Beer Olympics

Written on July 10, 2013 by Campus Life in Social

beer-olympics5It has now been almost 3 months since the inaugural Beer Olympics was held at O’Connors Bar (C/ Almagro, 3) on April 19th. For those of you who did not attend it or weren’t here yet, you really don’t know what you missed. It was a flash from the past… That is, if your past included a fraternity or house parties with drinking games. For the newbies it was a good chance to explore their inner freshman that was never given a fair chance. By midnight there was a beer pong tournament being played by seasoned veterans on a plywood covered pool table: regulation size.

beer-olympics4Several makeshift tables were used to train up and coming athletes, upstairs and down. The whole bar was taken over with inspirational athleticism.

Meanwhile, in the other room teams were competing in flip cup round by round. Of The Week Team was successful from the beginning till the end, upsetting the competition with a commanding lead right from the start. Team Captain Jim Rand was quoted as saying “This is my house!”. Someone is yet to prove him wrong. And that, my friends, is an official challenge for the next Beer Olympics.   

beer-olympics3The next games have not yet been officially planned, but they are sure to show up again before the die hard BOTW crew calls it a year. More games are planned. Blind Man’s Stumble anyone? Perhaps some balancing acts? Maybe even a keg stand? Anyone got any other bright ideas? Join IE Bar Of The Week Facebook Page and submit your suggestions: not only for Beer Olympics, but for other events as well. Try to be creative, eh?

Lots of love,

IE BOTW Team

We always welcome anyone who is interested in joining our initiatives. Anyone can contact me or Raviteja to join as a member but we would like to interact with him/her if he/she wants to be part of the board.
