As every year, the IE Global Alumni Forum will take place, an event that brings together Alumni from IE Business School who are invited to attend and have the opportunity to strengthen their network.
Last year over 1,000 managers and entrepreneurs from 43 countries met in Madrid and explored ways to exit the economic crisis. Experts including Joaquín Almunia, Luis Rojas Marcos and Bernardo Kliksberg addressed economic crisis, the continuous fight against poverty and the management of critical situations.
This year our Global Alumni Forum will take place in two different locations, namely Lima and Madrid on the 25th of March and on 30th of September respectively.
Diego del Alcázar – President of IE explains the importance of the event:
“In this first 2011 Global Alumni Forum, key players from the world of politics and entrepreneurship will be joining us to share their vision of the importance of innovation, entrepreneurship and academia. Peru was the venue of the APEC and ALC-UE forums in 2009, which resulted in it becoming a reference for both local and international investment.
In the Lima and Madrid Global Alumni Forums we’re aiming to add yet another successful event to those of previous years. At our last Forum in Madrid I had the pleasure of seeing over 1,500 of you who had travelled from countries around the world to be here, showing that together we form a dedicated network of global leaders.”
We look forward to seeing you on March 25th!

More and more students are looking to gain a greater global perspective and appreciation through our intensive one-year MBA that brings together over 70 nationalities in the classroom. Through small working groups, based on the practical case methodology approach, students are the focal point, learning from their differences and experiences stemming not only from their nationality, however also from various industries, functions, company size, academic background, etc. We also have one of the highest percentages of women in our programs, with 32% currently represented. All making for a truly diverse and transformational experience.
Santiago Iñiguez, dean of IE Business School, said in the article Asians see sense in European business schools, Straits Times, October 2010: “People are questioning the American model of shareholder’s value and are leaning towards the stakeholder’s values perspective, which favours responsibility over profitability. This is closer to the European model of business management.”
The European MBA has attracted international attention, American and Asian students are no exception, moving from the more traditional two-year MBA program to a one-year MBA surrounded by a more diverse student body. Today, almost 25% of IE’s students are from Asian countries. “Five years ago there was only one Singaporean student. This year there are eight.” says Santiago Iñiguez. The Chronicle of Higher Education looks into the appeal of the diverse one-year European programs.
