I think IE is a great university, with great opportunities. I really like the fact that it’s a school with a real dynamism, we always have conferences, debates, club reunions etc. I would recommend this university because I think it really can help its students and brings the best of them even though the price is really expensive.View more
IE University is dedicated to its students from the very beginning of their journey with IE. The staff is ready to help the students in any way they possibly can. From answering questions during the application process to helping to find internships and jobs after graduation. During the academic year, they are willing to help us in case of difficult situations and to adapt if needed.
Moreover, this university is incredibly international with students from all over the world, allowing each of us to see different perspectives from different cultures and countries. It also allows us to have friends from all over the world which is very enriching. For example, in the BIR (Bachelor of International Relations) it’s common to have over 30 different nationalities in the same classroom.
Aside the academics, a large range of clubs allow to practice multiple activities like cooking, sports, music, theater, debates etc.. Multiple events are also organized to create a sense of community among the student body, it includes parties, trips, IE days and many more events throughout the year.
IE also offers a large range of services for the well being of the students, a mentorship society allows incoming students to have a mentor to guide them. There’s also a mentoring and counselling service aiming to help with any personal or academic difficulty and it offers free sessions with professional psychologists if needed.
Finally, during the COVID-19 crisis, the university first created a hybrid system overnight with cameras inside classrooms to continue classes with students at home and in class at the same time. Later, the whole system moved to exclusively online and despite some few technical problems related to the speed all the decisions were taken, globally the system works very well.
As a whole, I love this university and I would do exactly the same choice if I had to do it again.View more
I am graduating from IE University this year and I could not be more satisfied with the type of education I have received. I am grateful for all the university staff because they were always aware of students’ needs and were always trying to offer us the best education. During the whole COVID-19 situation they had the number 1 online education system so we could continue with our classes without problems. They also offer clubs, many social activities, exchange programmes with many partner universities around the world, and much more!
I completely agree with the ranking in which IE is now, since for me it is the best university ever! I am so happy for having the chance of being an IE Alumni.
I would recommend IE because it is a different university within Spain, the education system is based on study cases and practical exercises. The study program is good and faculty is great always supportive and always ready to do extra work for the students.View more
IE is a very international community, you meet people from all over the world. I am part of a class of 50 students and we have 26 different nationalities.
IE is very well known for its business school and they have recently started to develop other programs in other of their schools. They are at a very initial stage in this development, reason, why there is sometimes lack of communication between schools, or procedures, differ from program to program.
IE is very receptive to the feedback which keeps them constantly improving, however at this stage I would recommend IE if you are interested in their Business School since their programs are more solid, and are well known globally.
I really enjoy being at this university. It’s a friendly place, where you can easily make friends from everywhere. IE university is indeed a very multicultural university, with a great atmosphere. The university it’s a nice place by itself, clean, new and therefore provides you a great support for your studies. I will recommend it.View more
I absolutely love IE University! I have had the pleasure of transferring to IE after completing two years at another “traditional” university. I find that IE has an amazing academic experience, with really passionate professors, and hands-on teaching methods. Classes are small allowing for intellectual debating, and teamwork opportunities. Exchange opportunities are extensive, and there is a very international student body. I have had an amazing year at IE and look forward to my next ones!View more
Hello, I’m Valentine and I am a first-year BBA student at IE University.
First of all, IE university is an international university where diversity is very important. With students from all over the world, it allows you to communicate, work and share experience with international students.
Also, IE university offers you a large variety of study programs and you have the opportunity to choose the campus you would like to study on.
I personally really like the support of professors, they are always available for us if we have questions or other issues, it is super easy to contact them by email.
Moreover, it is very nice to study at IE with a good environment based on technology. In fact, it is easy to follow the content of the course, the schedule and important exams dates via the technological platform Campus online.
I highly recommend, IE university. It will allow you to study in a fully international environment, give you a student life experience in Madrid. You will enjoy it for sure!View more
Yes, I would recommend the university. At IE I had one of the best experiences of my life and if I were to go back in time I would choose it again. It is a university that allows you to meet people from all over the world and learn from them. The university focuses a lot on diversity and inclusion of people but also on teamwork. During all my time at IE there hasn’t been a single class where I don’t have a group job. On the other hand, the university has different areas to improve. First, I think they have a lack of coordination between the departments and different schools at IE, second I think the university should change their exchange system, because if a student cancels their exchange either for medical reasons the university sanctions the student for a semester in which the student cannot reapply to another exchange or do internships during that period, which I think seriously affects the student’s development.View more
Generally, I would say that IE is a very good university that has fulfilled my expectations of the « university experience » with a great variety of courses which are really interesting. I love the fact that teachers are usually very friendly and really interested in your ideas and person. You don’t get to choose your subject (Except for a few courses) but I was pleasantly surprised with every course for the moment.
As for the location, IE is situated in Salamanca, a Nice neighbourhood of Madrid. The advantage is that you can have your flat really next to the university and still be close to the city centre.
Another point I would like to highlight about the university is that the faculty members are very efficient and try their best to help you out in every situation. Just as an example, when you reside in Spain you need to get an official paper to legally live there, the NIE. Through the process of acquiring, I thought that they really helped us, as most of us do not speak Spanish fluently.
