IE Global Alumni Weekend 2018
More than 1,000 IE graduates from 50 countries attended the IE Global Alumni Weekend 2018 where they had the opportunity to return to their alma mater. They attended master classes in the same classrooms where they studied, reunited with their classmates and continued to strengthen their network. You can have a look at all the photos here.
In the master classes, attendees had the opportunity to discuss a variety of subjects such as the main challenges that companies face today, the impact of the international socio-economic situation, the challenges of technology, and even leadership and social innovation in a world in disruption.
The 3rd edition of the EPIC Awards (Extraordinary People Inspiring the IE Community) ceremony also took place at the IE Global Alumni Weekend. The aim of the awards is to inspire the IE community through the success stories of IE graduates around the world. Congratulations to all the winners! You can read their amazing stories here.

In his address, Josep Borrell underscored the fact that growth has returned to Spain, after ten years of crisis. He also noted that productivity, on the other hand, is not growing, despite technological advances, and that growth in productivity is the key to progress. Read more.
