WEE´12 es un concurso que busca fomentar el talento e iniciativa empresarial entre mujeres europeas con formación técnica. La responsable de la mejor idea de negocio, cursará un máster en IE Business School, en el que adquirirá los conocimientos necesarios para hacer realidad su proyecto y convertirse en una emprendedora de éxito en el sector tecnológico. El objetivo de WEE’12 es promover la ambición empresarial entre las mujeres jóvenes con formación técnica en Europa y desarrollar sus aptitudes empresariales en campos como la energía, la electrónica o la mecánica. La iniciativa parte de la creencia de que la cooperación científica y la innovación son la base para impulsar el crecimiento de la economía en Europa.  Los requisitos para participar en el concurso son ser mujer, ciudadana europea y haber terminado una carrera técnica hace menos de 5 años, o estar a punto de terminarla y tener muchas ganas de sacar adelante una buena idea de negocio de base tecnológica.

Las tres finalistas, dos ingenieras españolas y una francesa, tendrán que defender su idea delante de un tribunal (compuesto por personalidades del mundo empresarial, académicos y directivos de Siemens) que escogerá la idea más innovadora y con mayor potencial.

In early 2013 IE´s School of Social & Behavioral Science, in partnership with IE Executive Education, will be launching an exciting new program developed specifically for experienced executives interested in achieving outstanding business results through transformational leadership. By gaining a deep understanding of the hard science in positive psychology and human behavior, participants learn how to optimize overall strategy, functional processes, and organizational design to achieve optimal performance in themselves and the people they lead.

As part of the launch of the program, and for this first intake only, alumni of IE Business School Executive Education’s Top Management Programs are eligible for a 25% grant towards the program tuition fees, upon obtaining admissions to the program.  That’s an award of 11.250€ for graduates of our AMP (all formats), SMP, OEMP, PGEF, TBL, VMP and GSMP programs.  For more information on how to apply for the Executive Master program and benefit from this special grant offering, please contact the Admissions team for the Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy at exmpls.admissions@ie.edu.

IE University and the Organization of American States (OAS) work together to help top professionals from OAS member countries access the postgraduate-level studies the need to lead change en their home countries, via scholarships and internships.  Together, both organizations also help these same professionals obtain a real world, international experience that provides new ideas, new contacts and new opportunities.  To learn more about the scholarship program, see the OAS’ web site here or visit the IE Financial Aid web site here.

Fall 2012 Scholarship Recipients

For the Fall 2012 group of scholarship recipients, 12 professionals from 9 different OAS member countries obtained scholarships for study at several of IE’s schools, with scholarship values ranging from 5.400€ to 23.200€ (US$6.600 to US$28.500).  This year IE will be receiving professionals from the following countries: El Salvador, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, United States and Venezuela.

Programs of Study and Internships

The 12 scholarships have been awarded to students who will be studying the following 4 programs at the following IE schools: IE Business School (International MBA, Master in International Management), IE School of Arts and Humanities (Master in International Relations) and IE School of Communication (Master in Corporate Communication).

Once scholarship recipients have graduated from their program, top academic performers can apply and be considered for internships at the OAS in Washington, D.C. as a way to complete their international experience.  So, in addition to getting additional European experience, top performers can also compete for an additional professional opportunity in the US, where they can apply what they learned during their master program at IE.

Impact in Scholarship Winners’ Home Countries

After their studies at IE, and their internships if the scholarship recipient successfully obtains an internship with the OAS in Washington, all grantees must return to their home countries to contribute to local development initiatives be they in the private and/or public sector.  This commitment to return completes the professional development and knowledge transfer process.

German student Christopher Rehberger talks about how, as an alumni of the e-fellows.net network, he was able to partly fund his program at IE Business School, with a scholarship jointly offered by IE and e-fellows.net:

“Einen Finance-Master an einer der renommiertesten Business Schools in Europa finanziert man nicht mal eben so. Das merkte auch e-fellow Christoph. Da kam ihm das Master-Stipendium der IE für e-fellows gerade recht. Er konnte die Hälfte der Studiengebühren sparen. Im Interview erklärt er, wie er sich das Stipendium gesichert hat…”

Recently during a market development trip to Ukraine, we met with several high potential candidates to discuss their profiles, motivations in choosing IE Business School and how they planned to fund their studies.  We met with 17 candidates in total, and most of the candidates we met with were very well prepared, and had a very clear financial plan in place.

As part of our activities in Ukraine we worked with MBA Strategy, a local firm that focuses on helping top candidates join elite international schools, to interact with top candidates in Kiev.  We also recorded an interview with them, and it’s now available on YouTube.  To see the video, click here.
