IE USA Club Madrid Chapter 2018

Written on July 17, 2018 by Campus Life in Geographic

As our term as board members come to an end, the USA Club would like to reflect on its accomplishments. Our mission as a club was to focus our efforts on giving our members the best opportunity for success. We did this by improving our relationship and involvement with Career Services. Although IE has dedicated staff searching for job opportunities, we believed the club also has the responsibilities to maximize those efforts via our own network. For example, we have started to work closely with Matthew David, who is the Associate Director, B2B/Careers/Alumni Relations for North America. Together with Matthew, we have started several initiatives to improve our communication. The club has also held join events with numerous other student clubs such as the Finance Club, the Recruitment Club and the Big Data Club. In addition, we have held several networking events aiming to encourage members to get to know each other. Most importantly, we have also tried to have fun throughout the process. We would like to thank all our members for their participation. It was a fun journey!


USA Club Independence Day Potluck!

Written on July 16, 2018 by Campus Life in Geographic

The 4th of July is a very important federal holiday for Americans. On July 4th 1776, the thirteen American colonies declared independence from the British Empire as the United States of America. Today, the day is typically celebrated by gathering with friends and family at an outdoor barbecue with patriotic decorations and the evening concludes with a beautiful fireworks display.

In order to share this special tradition with IE students and friends and help our members feel at home, the USA Club hosted a potluck picnic in El Parque del Buen Retiro. The event was organized by Sara Powell with the support of the other board members. We asked our members to bring their favorite, classic 4th of July dishes to share with others like hot dogs, apple pie, and watermelon. In the American and IE spirit, we also encouraged friends from other countries to attend so we could share our tradition but also enjoy favorite dishes from their countries as well.

The event started in the afternoon and the celebration went until almost midnight as friend enjoyed food, drinks, classic American music, and played games. It was a great success with a turnout of over 50 attendees. Although we were not with our families, we were all still grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the 4th of July amongst our IE community.

Written on April 30, 2018 by Campus Life in Geographic, Professional

On March 15th, the IE USA Club hosted an event geared towards careers in financial services in the USA. It was an excellent opportunity to meet Kelly Shaw, VP of Acquisitions and Strategy at Synchrony in the USA. With her 7+ years experience, in over 3 countries, in M&A / Corporate Development and Corporate VC, Ms. Shaw was a perfect hit with our IE community! Here are some highlights from our event…

Mr. Shaw provided insights into the Corporate Development / Strategy roles at large firms, focusing on the latest Corporate Venture Capital and M&A trends.

She compared Corporate Development / Corporate VC to traditional Investment Banking and VC. Additionally she highlighted the latest trends in Retail and Fintech innovation as well as discussed many aspects of the deal execution process which many found very insightful.

Lastly, she kindly gave individual guidance to all the attendees interested in corporate development and corporate venture capital roles as well as to potential entrepreneurs interested in working with strategic investors. Afterwards, we enjoyed some tapas with the aim to network in a different setting. It was a very successful event.

We would like to thank everyone for attending and hope they received beneficial insights into the financial services sector. See you at our next event!
