IE University Review

Extremely international and unique degrees, but too high student acceptance rate

The university offers amazing and unique degrees, which will certainly advance anyone’s career opportunities. In particular, the various dual degrees offer great curricula and study opportunities. Moreover, IE really is an extremely international university with students from all over the world. Although most are Latin American and European, there are also students from Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, US, Marocco, etc. Furthermore, the class sizes are small such that there is a close relationship with the professors and one can engage in many interesting discussions, and the university focuses on practical matters. Thus, any student will learn more than simply the theory but also how to apply it in the professional field, preparing them extremely well for their later careers. Regarding the professors, there are some absolutely amazing professors – some of the best ones I have ever had the pleasure of teaching me – but also some professors who hardly speak any English, have no knowledge of how to teach in an understandable and organized manner and sometimes might even not have sufficient knowledge regarding the subject matter whatsoever. The mix of high and low quality teachers is certainly a byproduct from having rather unique degrees taught in English in a Spanish-speaking country, thus understandable, yet unacceptable regardless. Nevertheless, overall I am extremely satisfied with the learning experience and feel qualified for my future profession in law. The biggest problem, however, is the subpar student body. Due to Spanish regulations, the university is forced to continuously grow, thus, being forced to accept too many students, which should not be accepted, resulting in many students who are unmotivated, disinterested and underqualified for their university studies. Regardless, there are certainly many highly intelligent, passionate and dedicated students with an extremely international background that cannot be found elsewhere. Overall, I am happy to be studying at this university, but there are still many things that need to be changed. The university itself, however, does seem to be open to hearing from students. Finally, no matter what degree one is studying there is a focus on business matters.
