IE University (IEU) is a private university with campuses located in Segovia and Madrid (Spain). IEU programs are offered in English and Spanish, and are compliant with the terms of the European Education Area (Bologna Accords).
IE IMPACT is a transversal academic program, totaling 21 ECTS, required of all IEU undergraduate students. Consisting of courses in the Humanities, Technology and Entrepreneurship, IE IMPACT reinforces these three foundational pillars of IE University, and centers Diversity and Sustainability throughout the entire learning journey, which culminates with the IE Challenge.
Students from all IE schools and bachelor degrees come together in this dynamic program where they are introduced to some of the most complex issues and challenges facing societies; they develop a working knowledge of the disruptive technologies that are applied to address these challenges and contemplate their implications. Students develop an entrepreneurial mindset by learning to ideate, design and validate business models that can serve to make positive change happen over the long-term. Finally, student teams tackle real-world problems by ideating and designing proposals to help a startup or company advance, amplify or scale their impact on achieving one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals.
