On September 17, 2011 IE University will inaugurate its 4th academic year. This academic year 2011-12 its also marked by the launch by the LLB in English as well as in Spanish and the BBA-LLB Dual Degree in both languages.

This coming Friday students from 50 different nationalities will start to study at IE building a student body which is 65% international and therefore one of the most diverse student bodies in the university environment. Students are coming predominantly from Spain, UK, Germany and Switzerland but also from Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Vietnam to name a few.

The official inauguration marks the end of the orientation week WEEK O in which all activities are angled around team-building and cross cultural understanding. These initiatives as well serve to settle into the new environment – very few people are privileged to study in a 13th century monastery.

Good luck to all incoming students – Welcome to IE University!
