Shortly the final 45 recipients of the EuropeanPWN memberships will be contacted by the EuropeanPWN with more details on how to complete the registration process for their free, 1-year membership to this cross-EU network of professionals dedicated to the advancement of women professionals.  While we had about 2 applications for each membership available (just short of 100 applications in total), in the end we had to select the most qualified members of the IE community of current and future professionals based on their background, program of study, responsibilities and their contribution to the overall diversity of the pool of membership recipients joining the EuropeanPWN this year.  Below is a snapshot of the group of who will be receiving memberships:

  • Programs: International Executive MBA, Executive MBA, Executive Master in Dirección Comercial y Marketing, Executive Master in Dirección Financiera, International MBA, Master in International Relations, Master in International Management, and Master in Marketing Management.
  • Some of the Top Organizations: IE, Saint Gobain, Airbus, Altran, Endesa, Inditex, Randstad, Accenture, Ferrovial, Union Fenosa, Red Electrica, British Telecom, Honeywell, Invest Hong Kong, SUMAQ, 10,000 Women (Goldman Sachs), Financieros Sin Fronteras, and many additional large and medium size organizations.
  • Age Range: 23 to 50 (majority early to mid 30s).
  • Languages: all selected recipients speak 2 or more languages (many 3 or more).
  • Gender: majority of recipients are women, but the final group does include both men and women members of the IE community.
  • 45 Memberships: In addition to the 25 student memberships awards, 5 alumni and 15 management/director-level staff members received special invitations to join.

Please take the following into consideration if you are going to be requesting that we open a bank account for you ahead of your arrival, so that you can take care of living, tuition and other expenses:

  1. If you have a Spanish passport (dual-nationality) then you will also need to provide either a copy of your DNI/NIE card or a letter from your local Spanish Embassy specifying that you live and work outside of Spain, and therefore do not pay taxes in Spain.
  2. As an alternative, use your other passport as proof that you are a national of another country where you are presumably a tax paying national.

In either case, for Financial Aid to open your Caja Madrid bank account ahead of arrival to Madrid, we need you to send a copy of the photo page of your passport and a copy of your admissions letter.

Non-Spanish nationals who have 1 or more nationalities which are not Spanish do not need to worry about this post, as any of your passports will suffice.

The special restriction for students with Spanish dual-nationality is due to taxation laws in Spain.
