About IE Business School
Recognized as one of the world’s top business schools, IE Business School, with its central Madrid campus, boasts students from more than 80 countries in its Master, Doctorate, and Executive Education programs and a faculty of more than 400 professors. IE Business School shapes leaders who promote innovation and change in organizations, equipping directors with an entrepreneurial mindset that generates employment, wealth, and social wellbeing. IE students use innovative online and presential learning formats, including the IE Communities platform where they exchange knowledge and experiences with 40,000 IE graduates that currently hold management positions in some 100 countries. In fact, IE is among the most international educational institutions in the world. This is no accident: the School strives to reflect the reality of the world through a diverse student body and faculty. IE Business School was founded by entrepreneurs, and so the entrepreneurial vein runs deep at IE, where business creation is seen as an engine for growth, value generation, employment, and social well-being. This focus on entrepreneurship results in around 10 percent of business school graduates going on to set up new ventures when they leave IE. To facilitate this, the School has a wide range of modules and processes, including the Venture Lab, which supports business plan development and enables participants to pitch their ideas to business angels and venture capitalists. At IE, there is the belief that individuals not only have the power to shape and influence the times we live in, but we are also morally obliged to make a positive contribution to the world around us. This is why we inculcate our students with a strong sense of social responsibility and an understanding of how to apply it to their careers. In addition to an entrepreneurship spirit and international focus, IE Business School has a deep commitment to society. The term Corporate Social Responsibility sometimes divides the business world, with some executives still insisting that a company’s only obligation is to its shareholders. IE is at the other end of the ethical spectrum, seeing social responsibility not as a PR tool but something much more. Business leaders cannot avoid the responsibility of managing the social and environmental impacts of a company’s activities. For this reason, IE students are exposed to key concepts such as social innovation, design thinking, base of pyramid markets, social entrepreneurship, right-hand left-hand thinking, and chaordic approaches.
