The University inaugurates its first academic year with two new degrees in Architecture and Communication that are fully compliant with the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). In his address during the inauguration of the first academic year of the new international university model launched by IE in April of this year, Santiago IÃ±iguez de OnzoÃ±o, Rector of IE UniversityÂ stated that â??The university we are building will be one of Europeâ??s most prestigious centers of learning, in line with the achievements of our business schoolâ?.
The Rector described IE University as â??A private institution with a public mission: that of educating global citizens, entrepreneurs who are committed to society and have an excellent working knowledge of their fields.â? He went on to underscore the fact that IE Universityâ??s innovative, market-oriented programs will also equip graduates with a solid grounding in humanities and management, given that â??humanities are the binding agent that integrate other knowledge, and the base for shaping individuals in the fullest sense of the wordâ?. IÃ±iguez de OnzoÃ±o also spoke about how behind every good business practice there is a good management practice, which is why IE University graduatesâ?? education will be equivalent to that of an MBA graduate, in that they will be entrepreneurial in their fields, change agents in their profession, and generators of value and social well-being.
After speaking about the Universityâ??sÂ two new degree programsÂ in Architecture and Communication launched at the beginning of the academic year, both of which are adapted to the European Higher Education Area, ÃÃ±iguez de OnzoÃ±o announced that in the next academic year, following the receipt of the pertinent approval, IE Universityâ??s Santa Cruz la Real campus is set to launch new degrees in Business Administration,Â Biology, Law, History of Art, Construction Engineering, Journalism and Audiovisual Communication, Psychology, Tourism Management, and Systems and Technologies. â??One of the key features of these new degree programs will be their markedly international slant in terms of content, student profile, Spanish and English versions, strategic alliances and exchanges with leading international universities, and relations with global business organizations and institutions.
