“Life it is not just a series of calculations and a sum total of statistics, it’s about experience, it’s about participation, it is something more complex and more interesting than what is obvious.” – Daniel Libeski
Here at IE, we learn that participation is value creation, a process through which every individual has the opportunity to speak out his mind and influence the surroundings, to build conviction, defend and spread ideas. Our community grows due to the contribution of time and effort from everyone at IE: our staff, faculty, students and alumni. As a MIM student you will have various opportunities to be a good organisational citizen of the IE community, from being a class rep to creating a club or becoming a program ambassador.
As a result of this, last January, the IE marketing department formed a team of six well-rounded students to create cool content and manage the social media life of the school and, luckily, I am one of them! Facebook, instagram, twitter, snapchat, a community of 170,000 people and every time I post I feel like being under the spotlights, I know that my voice blends with all of my peers and I just want the world out there, to know what is like to be one of Us.Yes, because I am one of many, but here, we all share the same values and we all work together to achieve our dreams, so, for me, this is an opportunity to guide the curious ones, through my everyday routine in Madrid, while raising the awareness of our brand.
Case studies, beautiful people, quizzes, cool home parties, churritos, hamburguesas, jamon iberico and pizza of course (Italian pizza), these and all of the others tons of activities, places and spanish culinary specialities are featured on our channels every week. It’s tough dealing with a sexy lady like Madrid for a business school student at IE, because TIME is running!
