Africa at IE
This month has been full of good news for the African continent, one the most prolific regions within IE’s internationalization strategy.
First of all, the brand new “Africa at IE” microsite has been launched, dedicated to everyone interested in becoming a part of the IE Community, gathering all types of useful information, such as a directory for the continent’s regional offices, the different partnerships IE has with local and international companies in Africa, events that took place within Africa’s many countries (in which IE has rather organized or participated in), as well as programs with special collaborations throughout the continent, and scholarships.
Regarding this internationalization, a new office has been launched in Johannesburg, which will be covering not just South Africa, but more than 7 countries. The goal is no other than to expand IE’s brand and network throughout the region.
Keep up the good work Africa!
