Inside IE May

IE Rockets

With the goal of constantly Reinventing Higher Education, we launched the IE Rockets project. Part accelerator, part angel investor, part very committed educational client, IE Rockets fosters startups to develop technological ideas for pedagogy.

We are particularly looking for ideas with traction, and that want to scale up in the educational areas of collaborative learning, personalized learning, learning analytics, learning delivery tools, and innovative learning.

Help us find the latest learning methodologies…together. We can wait to see your ideas coming!

Following a need to have more programs online, we decided to launch our High Impact Online Programs, or HiOPs. These programs are offered in a 100% online format that allows participants to reconcile their studies with other work and personal commitments. By following a similar methodology than our Global MBA, we implement the latest concepts and tools to ensure the same academic rigor and quality of IE’s on-campus programs.

The courses we have in pipeline are:

“Digital Marketing, Social Media and Analytics: An Omnichannel Strategy”

“Scaling Up: A Framework for Sustained Growth”

“Leading innovation”
