As part of both organizations’ continued commitment to developing professionals in the Americas, IE and the OAS have recently renewed an agreement that brings top students to Madrid to complete IE’s Master in International Relations degree.  See the recent article in América Economía:


Odette Carey recently joined IE Business School’s Master in International Management program (April 2009 intake), and was able to do so thanks to a partnership between IE Business School and the Organization of American States whereby both organizations invest in top candidates coming from the Americas, who post-program will return to their countries to contribute to activities there.  Here’s what Odette had to say about coming to IE: 

“My name is Odette Carey, and I’m from The Bahamas.  Before coming to Madrid for studies, I worked for three years as a Sales and Marketing Manager at one of the largest and most fascinating resorts in the world: Atlantis Resort & Casino.  In my capacity as Manager at Atlantis, I contributed to many successful promotional campaigns and sales driven strategies to sustain my job, and many others during this tough economic crisis.  

As tourism is one of the most important industries in The Bahamas, I’ve been privileged to have worked in a sector that for the most part has been stable – and not to mention very exciting – which is why I feel the need to protect and sustain it.  Being offered this great opportunity from IE and the Organization of American States (OAS) to attend IE in the Masters in International Management program allows me to gain the exposure and knowledge I need to become an effective leader, creating the necessary change to lead the tourism sector in The Bahamas. 

My goal after completing the Masters in International Management program is to use the international exposure gained and the professional network I am building now at IE, to inject new ideas and expand new product offerings within my country.  This award from the OAS and the IE Foundation will provide me with all the necessary tools to make this happen, for which I am very appreciative. ”

Recently we’ve been disappointed as a few cases have arisen where students have not met their financial obligations in a timely manner. This is especially concerning when the student has been granted financial support through the IE Foundation. We understand it’s a tough economic environment we’re all facing, however this does not mean financial responsibilities should be left unattended.  We’re troubled by these few cases because it communicates a lack of commitment to the program, and a lack of personal commitment to maintaining the ethical standards expected of candidates who will be graduating with degrees from IE.

As a recipient of aid granted by the IE Foundation, please think about the following: given your lack of personal financial resources, IE has invested in you because we believe that you have the potential to be a successful ambassador for IE in the coming future.  IE believes in your future potential.  Think about the implications for the professional network you’ll be coming to IE to build and the IE representative you would like to be, especially considering the investment IE is making in you.

Think about the big picture and be realistic about your ability to meet financial commitments: if even counting with the benefit of having a scholarship or fellowship you don’t think you will be able to meet your tuition and living expenses, then we recommend you delay your entry into the program until you have secured the necessary resources.  When you are admitted to IE, we give you the right to enter your program of admissions for up to 3 intakes after having received the admissions offer, so take the time to make sure you have all your resources in place.  Coming to IE is an important investment in time, energy and financial resources, but it’s an investment that all students make when they come to study at one of Europe’s leading institutions of higher learning.

In closing, please keep in mind: It’s not a coincidence that most scholarships require an essay that outlines how the applicant sees the responsibilities of being a scholarship recipient: those who receive scholarships and fellowships should see the awards as part of a commitment by IE to developing the individual as a future professional, and as one more reason to ensure they meet their professional responsibilities during the program and beyond IE.
