IE Business School Prize for Economic Journalism

Written on October 10, 2012 by Joël McConnell in Global News on Financial Aid

The last 20 years have seen unprecedented levels of development and economic transformation in practically all the countries in the Asian continent. This growth is evidenced not only by macroeconomic figures but also by the change in the day-to-day lives of hundreds of millions of Asians, duly documented and chronicled by the media in countries throughout Asia. These narratives of the different phases of economic growth include accounts of the first arrivals of foreign business, mass exportation to the West, and the major inroads made by Asian multinationals in the rest of the world since the year 2000, not only in the form of exports but also in terms of purchases and production in every continent.

In order to lend our support and bring added impetus to this important personal and social challenge facing economic journalists in Asia, IE BUSINESS SCHOOL has created the IE BUSINESS SCHOOL PRIZE FOR ECONOMIC JOURNALISM IN ASIA, aided by the sponsorship of CAF Banco de Desarrollo de América Latina in the form of 6000 euros (aprox 7500 US Dollars). The Prize recognizes the article and media that best fosters economic culture among the population of the country in question by explaining how global trends and movements are impacting the spending power of its citizens.

We’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about payment schedules, payment processing and financial assistance and so Financial Aid wanted to clarify which departments are responsible for which aspects of your tuition payment responsibilities at IE.  This information is useful for admitted candidates to an IE master degree program.

Admissions Department: Payment Schedule and Admissions Contract.

The Admissions Department at IE is responsible not only for selecting the best candidates and offering them admissions to an IE degree program, they are also responsible for formalizing the enrollment process via the Admissions Contract.  As the payment schedule is a component of the Admissions Contract, setting your payment schedule is something you need to discuss with the Admissions Department.  Financial Aid does not handle tuition payment scheduling.

Financial Aid Department: Processing Applications for Financial Assistance and Awarding Assistance to Degree Candidates.

Financial Aid receives applications for scholarships, fellowships and student loans, and decides which admitted candidates receive assistance from IE directly.  Financial Aid also manages all national and international agreements with program co-sponsors.  Financial Aid does not handle payment schedules and/or payment processing issues.

Administration Department: Payment Processing Issues.

Once a student has been admitted to their program, have had their financial assistance request processed and signed their admissions contract, any subsequent payment issue needs to be handled by the Administration Department.  Students who are going to have a delay in the sending of payment are highly recommended to proactively contact the Administration Department.  Late payments are subject to penalty.  Financial Aid does not handle payment processing issues of any kind, including the Place Reservation payment of 5.000€ and the IE Foundation Contribution of 1.200€.
