Tales directly from the capital… 

Informal Drinks 1 October
It was great to see so many people brave the torrential rain to join our informal drinks evening at The Arch Hotel in London on the 1st October, especially as it was a Friday night! Our alumni loved meeting all the candidates who are due to join IE this autumn on a variety of different courses, from the Master in Management, to the International and Executive MBAs. It was a great opportunity for the candidates to get the nitty gritty from the alums and of course to network with each other in the heart of London.

Admission Test 31 September
People say how international London is but as a Londoner I’m constantly amazed how true this is….The admission test attendees came from a smorgasbord of different countries. It’s good to see how IE has such an international reach amongst such bright and motivated people from all over the world.

Spanish Chamber of Commerce
We hold our Admission tests and various events at the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, conveniently situated just behind Selfridges on Oxford Street. We have a great relationship with the very proactive and interesting Spaniards who run the Chamber of Commerce so watch this space for some interesting events in the future.
