IE MasterClass || The World of the Future

Written on November 1, 2011 by Dirk Hopfl in IE News

What will the future look like? What are the challenges that society will have to face? The future is the consequence of our current actions. Studying the future could allow us to anticipate consequences and choose courses of action that can lead us to desirable scenarios. This session is not an exercise of prediction but an opportunity to discuss the main issues that are molding the years ahead. Is Globalization reversible? Are we facing a technological revolution? What consequences will current events have on society and business?

Enjoy two engaging sessions with our Professor William Davila in Australia:

Sydney – November 22, 2011 – Four Points by Sheraton, Darling Harbour

Melbourne – November 24, 2011 – The Hub, Level 3 – 673 Bourke Street

IE-Brown University International Teaching Fellowship

Written on October 17, 2011 by Dirk Hopfl in IE News

IE University and Brown University invites candidates from the humanities to apply for the International Teaching Fellowship (ITF) for the academic year 2012-13. The ITF provides the opportunity to teach in Spain at IE University in Segovia, Spain as a fellow of the School of Arts and Humanities. The fellow will also be affiliated with the Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown University. The fellowship offers the opportunity to develop and implement innovative curricula in one of Europe’s foremost professional degree-granting institutions while also providing time for research and career development.

IE University is the undergraduate affiliate institution of IE Business School, based in Madrid. The IE International MBA is regularly ranked in the top-ten worldwide and its specialized Masters programs are recognized globally. The undergraduate program, launched in 2009, has been designed to bring the excellence of the graduate school to undergraduate teaching. IE’s undergraduate student body is extremely diverse, with no single dominant national or linguistic group.

IE University offers a unique liberal arts model of education in the heart of Europe, with an emphasis on small class sizes and student-faculty exchange. The School of Arts and Humanities is at the very heart of IE’s mission, as the courses it offers form part of all the undergraduate and postgraduate programs at the University.

In addition to the faculty life found within the University, fellows may also profit from IE’s connections to the wider academic environment in Madrid, including important libraries (e.g. Biblioteca Nacional), leading museums (e.g. Thyssen, Prado), Foundations (e.g. Juan March), Research Centres (e.g. CSIC), and neighbouring Universities (e.g. Universidad Complutense).

Fellows will join the IE claustro (faculty) to teach the equivalent of two courses in a blended seminar/lecture format.  The course curriculum should reflect the interests and strength of the fellow, as well as the pedagogical aims of IE´s undergraduate program; curricula will be developed in collaboration with the IE School of Arts and Humanities. Because of the diverse nature of IE’s degree programs, fellows will likely have the opportunity to teach either two standard, semester-length undergraduate courses, or one such class combined with short, structured courses in the graduate program. In total, the fellow will be responsible for 130 contact hours and no more than two curricula. The language of instruction is English and knowledge of Spanish is not required. More information about IE’s teaching structure as well as general information about the institution can be found on our website.

The IE Brown Executive MBA is to be launched in March 2011. One core element of this program is Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship which pulls together all management areas with the aim to create value for the firm as well as for society introducing Brown’s expertise into the value creation process.

The objective of the teach the innovation processes and develop the entrepreneurial skills associated with the continuous creation of value in a business environment and social context. The ability of a company to create new value for customers and end users is essential to sustained growth. This module is therefore about participants understanding corporate innovation processes and learning the leadership skills associated with entrepreneurial management and new business development. The pedagogical approach is that of ‘experiential learning’ in which the faculty provide a framework for understanding, but the participants develop and sharpen their skills by undertaking projects based upon relevant  xperiences drawn from their own environment. The projects blend team and individual activities, culminating in a business case. The project also incorporates the nuanced learnings from the liberal arts and critical studies curriculum in framing the business case in a relevant cultural, historical and geopolitical context.

In the following video, this approach will be visualized by Angus Kingon from Brown and Joseph Pistrui and Pablo Martin from IE.
