IE Global Innovation Challenge

Written on June 6, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

On the evening of 4 June, we welcomed 11 teams to the internal selection round for IE’s first international case competition, the IE Global Innovation Challenge. After spending 3 days with a case on Sephora’s acquisition of Southeast Asian beauty brand Luxola, teams pitched their analysis and recommendation to a panel of IE judges (Eduardo Pedreno, Maria-Eugenia Marin and Carl Kock). More than 70 people including teams showed up at Aula Magna to hear from diverse student teams from different Masters’ programs at IE applying knowledge learnt from their classes to real-life situations. While judges were deliberating, we kept everyone entertained with a Kahoot quiz to test the audience’s Sephora knowledge and the winner was Francisco Rojo (Jan ’19 IMBA)!

Finally, the winning IE team was announced…. Lavoisier!!! The team was comprised of Carolina Monteiro, Veronica Moreno, Maria  de Los Angeles Diaz Tena and Colin Constantine (all September ’18 IMBAs). A huge congratulations to team Lavoisier!!!!! They will go directly into the final round on 28 & 29 June where they will compete with other business schools globally such as HEC Paris, Cambridge, Schulich and AGSM! Observers are welcome to support the IE team – for more information and to buy tickets, visit: http://ieinnovate.global

IE Consulting Club with Accenture Strategy

Written on April 30, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE Consulting Club had last month the pleasure of teaming up with Accenture Strategy – Accenture Showcase Page to present another round of the Club’s case-cracking sessions on Campus. In this occasion our guest speaker, Anton Riestra -Director for the Energy Sector- conducted a Company presentation, and introduced us to the main tech trends disrupting the Electricity Sector, such as Electric Vehicles. We finished with a real-life case on the same topic. We would like to thank him and Diana Mahecha Ramírez again for their time and insights on the company, strategy-related careers and tips to prepare for recruitment processes. The event was a success, reaching overcapacity! This would have not been possible without all the effort of the Club Coordinators, Miguel Donetch, Cem Özmen, Syna Fischer, Alvaro Rueda Arellano, Manuel Ehmann, Christian Leibold Abhyudaya Choumal on the one side; and Marina Moreno and María López Domínguez on the Accenture side. This also portrays the continued growth of strategic relationships with the consulting industry thanks to IE’s Career Services and IE Corporate Relations through Juan Oyarzabal Lodge, BEATRIZ GARCIA-BERNALT and Dean Price from IE Business School.

Thank you all!

Written on March 23, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE Consulting Club had the honour of hosting Christian Cella, VP of Strategy & Market Development for Emerging Markets at Wolters Kluwer. He conducted a very interactive crack-the-case event with the attendees on a real-life company example. We would like to thank him again for his time and insights on the company and strategy-related careers. The event was a success with more than 100 registered people. This would have not been possible without Ramita Vig, former IMBA and MscBD graduate; Juan Oyarzabal Lodge, BEATRIZ GARCIA-BERNALT from IE Business School; and to the rest of the coordinators: Cem Özmen, Syna Fischer and Alvaro Rueda Arellano.

Thank you all!

LOOKING FORWARD

Written on December 14, 2017 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE Consulting Club is extremely happy about the interest and participation on campus in the past semester. We are excited to announce that we will be continuing regular case cracking sessions after the break, and diversify our portfolio of events even further.

Case Cracking Wednesdays
The Consulting Club meets weekly for its “Case Cracking” session, in which we cover the basics of management consulting cases, walk you through a group case, facilitate individual case cracking or host guest speakers from the industry. We witnessed an increase in the participation rate throughout the year, and expect regular participation of those who might be preparing for consulting interviews in the upcoming semester.

Extended Membership
We are working hard to increase diverse participation in our activities, and proud to note that already many students from the IMBA, MIF, MIM, MIAF and Masters in Big Data are joining us. We plan to extend membership to IE University students by organizing joint activities and combining powers to host bigger and more inclusive events.

Company partnerships
We are looking forward to constructive long-term collaborations with firms from the industry, via co-hosting events and inviting more speakers to inform our members about the job functions and tips on a good application.

Events
Please make sure you follow us on CampusGroups and join our Facebook page! There is nothing worse than signing up late and ending on a waiting list for an event you really want to attend. We will continue hosting representatives from renowned consulting firms and will increase our on-campus presence by giving you the chance to show what you have learnt during our case cracking sessions.

Our main aim always is to build a sustainable bridge between IE students and consulting firms, by devoting as much resources as possible to get you ready for that case interview you were waiting for!
