Santiago Iniguez 在IMBA 2008开学典礼上的几个POINTS,或许可以让你从另一个角度了解IE。
• You know nothing 你一无所知
• Everything changes 事情总在变化
• Preparing global leaders 我们培养全球化的商业领袖
• Quote from William Butler Yeats
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire
• Quote from poem by Horace “Carpe diem”
Carpe diem一词源自荷马《奥德赛》中的一首拉丁文诗,英文翻译成seize the day,跟我们汉语“一寸光阴一寸金”类似的意思。

Leuconoe, don’t ask — it’s dangerous to know —
what end the gods will give me or you. Don’t play with Babylonian
fortune-telling either. Better just deal with whatever comes your way.
Whether you’ll see several more winters or whether the last one
Jupiter gives you is the one even now pelting the rocks on the shore with the waves
of the Tyrrhenian sea–be smart, drink your wine. Scale back your long hopes
to a short period. Even as we speak, envious time
is running away from us. Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

联系到在IE读MBA课程,我们也应该seize the day,充分利用这短暂的15个月的时间来
