It is difficult to get a sense on how students spend their non-lecture time at IE. For potential candidate this piece of information however is important as a Master degree in a foreign country should not just only be about academics and learning. Immersing into culture, learning Spanish and build up the personal and professional network are as critical to the overall experience.
It is a reality that students spend long hours working in teams preparing presentations, discuss projects and find solutions to the problems highlighted in each case. It is also true that on top you have to spend several hours prior to your team meetings to read all those case studies and technical notes.
However, there seems to be also time for the other “more exciting student life” meaning joining student clubs, networking and partying. Check the web of the IE Campus Life and their facebook page to really learn which student clubs are doing what.
