Global Village – The world in one single place

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

With more than 90 nationalities together, IE Business School is a melting pot of cultures. That’s why, every year, the Net Impact Club organizes an event to celebrate this rich cultural diversity with joy and fun, the Global Village. A magical event where the geographic clubs present a little about their culture, with music, dance, food and drinks.

In 2016, when I was president of Brazil Club, the event took place on a sunny Thursday of June and brought together 500 people to celebrate diversity. Of course, Brazil Club had a booth there! We managed to make it an amazing day, with a presentation of capoeira, pão-de-queijo, brigadeiro, guaraná, and açaí.

It was an incredible event, not only because we could show our culture, but also because we could see and live a little of the culture of different countries. I enjoyed every second as much as possible and tried things that I had never seen before. And I loved it!

Brazil Club – By Guilherme Ubiali

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Professional, Social

Last year, 2016, was very special to me, because I did my international MBA, a dream that I have since college. One of the things that I most liked about the MBA was the opportunity to participate in the clubs; I was a member of several clubs such as FMCG, Public Speaking, E-commerce, and HealthCare, but it was at the Brazil Club that I participated more.

I am passionate about my country, so as soon as I arrived in IE I talked with the coordinators of Brazil Club to help them. I started as a member, then gained more responsibilities and ended up being one of the main organizers of the first Brazilian Party of the year (Spring 2016). The coordinators, seen my dedication to the club, talked with me about the possibility of being a coordinator too, and maybe president of the club. I embraced the idea and started looking for friends who wanted to go on this journey with me, I knew that alone it would be impossible to do everything, so I set up a very strong team of coordinators that supported me when I was elected president of the club in May 2016.

Being President of the club was not only an honor for representing my country but also an incredible opportunity to learn. I could practice leadership and teamwork, organize events, do networking and promote our country. During the period that I was president, we did the welcome event for new Brazilian students, and the second Brazilian Party of the year (Fall 2016), this time with “samba” dancers. We also did a traditional Brazilian barbecue and several social events for the members.

In partnership with Area 31, we supported the launch of the book of the Brazilian professor Newton Campos, we participated in the magical Global Village and we organized the master event of the year, a lecture of one of the most famous Brazilian’s journalists, Eliane Cantanhêde, to talk about the political situation in Brazil.

And now I finish my period as coordinator with joy and gratefulness for the support I received from all the members, especially the partners I had as coordinators with me; Daniel, Gabriela, Carol, Bruno, and Alexandre.

IE Brazil Club Madrid Chapter

Written on October 21, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic, Other Activities, Social

brazil club2014 has been a busy year for IE Brazil Club. March was all about the now-famous Brazilian Party, in which over 300 students gathered to enjoy some of the best of Brazil’s beats, dance moves and snacks, all of which was of course washed down with a few caipirinhas.

With a fresh new batch of students arriving in April, the club started focusing on two major events, IE Global Village and the 2014 Fifa World Cup, hosted in Brazil.  June 12th was a day to dive in the diversity the school is proud of, enjoying the food and culture of dozens of countries, and of course feijoada and açaí in the Brazilian booth (provided to over 100 people thanks to the remarkable effort of all Brazilian students, partners and even children!). That night, as a celebration party after Global Village, the Brazil Club and the Brazilian Embassy in Madrid invited all 600 students to watch the kick-off for the World Cup on big screens at the gardens of Casa do Brasil, a mansion owned by the Brazilian Government. With the help of cold beer and a lively crowd of 2,000 Brazilians who live in Madrid, we together celebrated the most popular ‘religions’ in Brazil: football and party. At the soundtrack of famous Brazilian band “Funk como le gusta”, it was a fantastic party to celebrate a great day. After the end of the World Cup, our successful prediction game (in which 6 students got prizes such as an iPad, an official Brazilian football jersey and a few bottles of cachaça) and our well-deserved summer break, the Brazil Club got together to eat some feijoada again (yes, we need this specific dish every other month… invariably!) and plan the second semester schedule, such as the all-day event for careers and companies “Brazilian Day”, and the legendary Brazilian Party (confirmed for the end of November) as a welcome party to our November intake students.

Since we are Latin-Americans and love being around people all the time, a Happy Hour with the BRIC clubs is already confirmed for October 23rd and another event with Mercosur countries (Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay) is very close to being announced. Stay tuned for our events!


Carnival has already gone…get ready for World Cup!

Written on May 21, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic

brazil1One month and a half ago, IE Brazil Club – Madrid Chapter has promoted a crazily exciting week.

brazil 2The fun started on Tuesday, when a special Samba class was performed with the presence of more than 30 students. Thank you, IE Dance Club!!! On Thursday, Maria de Molina-31 hosted its first soccer-juggling contest. The winner scored amazingly 142 soccer juggling and was granted a free ticket for the party. Finally, on Friday, IE community came together and enjoyed one of the most expected events of the year: The Brazilian Party for 2014, that took place near Santiago Bernabeú Stadium, at Lolita Lounge & Club.

More than 300 people, from the different IE Masters’ courses, were present to the party and had the opportunity to know and taste a little bit more about the Brazilian culture.

A couple of traditional carnival dancers (passista and mulata) showed how to dance Samba followed by a live band that played until the midnight. The band was only interrupted for an amazing Capoeira performance, the combination of dance and martial art brought to Brazil by the Africans. Traditional drinks like Guaraná and Caipirinha were served and our guests could taste some Brazilian appetizers such as Brigadeiro.
