Chinese New Year party

Written on July 22, 2015 by Campus Life in Other Activities

Chinese New Year is the most important festival in a year. To celebrate the new year and promote cultural exchange, IE China Club organised a celebration party on 27th February in Boom Room Club. More than 100 participants celebrated the festival and made the night memorable.

After the welcoming speech by the club’s president, the party began with variety shows performed by IE Dance Club and IE Music Club.  Whilst all the participants were enjoying the great show, delicious Chinese tapas and free drinks were also being served in the venue. The party ended with a grand lucky draw. 20 of our friends won quality Spanish Cava, courtesy of Freixenet. For the rest, they also enjoyed discounts on booking Air France/ KLM tickets as a return for their supports towards the event.

We hope to see you again for the next activities!


IE China Club Amber Quartet Concert

Written on July 24, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic

RDR_6994 China has always been well known for its typical cultural musical performance with Chinese traditional instruments, however during recent years, no one could perceive that one young Chinese chamber music performance group, the Amber Quartet, was emerging to shine on the global stage. As chamber music was traditionally perceived as a typical European classic musical performance, no one was expecting the Chinese group Amber Quartet could outstand and finally won one of the most important international awards. In the year of 2013, they won the Grand Prize in the Asia-Pacific Chamber Music Competition, which made them the first Chinese chamber music group to win such prize. Composed of four members, they performed around the world on behalf of the top music criterion of China, their footprints spread all over concert halls of Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, USA, Australia, Japan and Korea.

During this year, as they are now studying abroad at the Queen Sofia College of Music in Madrid, so our IE China Club took the big advantage of this amazing news and invited this outstanding musician group to perform in IE Business School.

Even we are now having the best business studying environment in Spain at IE, there should be some moments that we should pull ourselves back and don’t forget to keep dreaming with music and art. With this idea, after months of communication and preparation, an exclusive concert of chamber music was carried out with the help of the Amber Quartet, and it lightened up the air of IE campus. Inside the exquisite building of the Paper Pavilion, Both IE students, alumnus and faculty members enjoyed a great performance from the Amber Quartet. 

RDR_7008RDR_7050They performed various compositions, including both classic chamber music pieces and also pieces recomposed from traditional Chinese music. The audience enjoyed every moment of the concert, and didn’t want to leave even after the encore performance. After the performance, the Amber Quartet members also joined the IE community for a cocktail on the terrace in front of the Paper Pavilion, therefore the joyful communication for both sides gave a perfect ending to this concert event.



ZTE Company Europe president lecture

Written on July 24, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic

Chinese companies now are trying to find their own way to shift the brand into a better image when they try to expand internationally. As one of the best Chinese based multinational companies and one of the biggest players in the telecommunication industry, ZTE has been performing stable and progressive in abroad.

In July, our IE China Club had the great honor to have a special guest speaker from ZTE Europe, Mr. Xiao Ming, the president of ZTE Europe, to make an amazing lecture in IE Campus, addressing the topic of how Chinese companies deal with the dynamic international business environment during their expansions. Therefore, students at IE will have a closer look into the Chinese companies’ cultures, and get a deeper insight of the industry. Mr. Xiao has 13 years of oversea career in telecommunication business, so his panoramic vision of the global economy and business would be very beneficial for us.

The lecture started with the brief introduction of Mr. Xiao himself, and some personal experience of how he managed his professional career. Followed up by understandable industry brief, Mr. Xiao introduced us how the telecommunication companies work in general, and he talked about several real cases about the ZTE Company’s entrance to different markets, such as European countries and African countries, where they applied totally different strategies. After the lecture, Mr. Xiao considerately spent half an hour to do the Q&A with the participators at the lecture for their passionate and endless questions. After the lecture, on behalf of the ZTE Europe, Mr. Xiao commented highly to the students of IE Business School, and expressed the intention of keeping this kind of cooperation with our IE Business School and IE China Club. Therefore, we will definitely bring more educational events like this to the community.


1008339_10200637027743113_131813590_oWords has it that every year there would be a new book published saying that China’s economy is going to sink but actucally there have already been more than a dozen or so in the market while Chinese Economy is still growing.

Such comments just came from the conference deliverd by Mr.Howard Davis, Dean of Hong Kong’s Polytecnic University and a brilliant professor who just walked the “Camino de Santiago” before he came to Maria de Molina 31 to share with about 50 IE students his insights on Hongkong’s Economy on June 24th, 2013. The event turned out to quite a vivid conversation and the feedback of the attending students had been overwhelming. Mr.Howard Davis’s humorous lecture style and abundant knowledge made the the speech very useful for background filling on the whole subject of Hon Kong’s Economy, actucally, a lecture like this is worth a fortune, because Mr.Davis only does it for Senior Business classes back in his university, so basically the attendants had the luck to save 1 plane-ticket to Hongkong.

The event was a part of the lecture series that IE China Club is planning to bring on IE Campus and it’s an effort of trying to build outside class contents that are in line with one of the world’s most heated topics – Chinese market. More is to be continued as IE China Club is working on arranging to repeat the success, so interested students please widen your eyes and register when our next bomb comes out!
