Welcome to the IE North America Blog.
According to Wikipedia, a blog (an abridgment of the term web log) “is a website, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video”. In this blog we hope you will find useful information pertaining to IE.
Since the year 2000, IE Business School has had a presence in the US. Back then we were not very well known in the North American market. It was not until 2004 that we really began developing this market by visiting major cities across the US and Canada and thus increasing the number of students coming to study in Madrid.
Today our presence in North America is very well established. We have representation offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami. From these offices we are able to promote IE Business School as well as support and help the admission process of any student coming from these regions. Therefore, our office in New York handles those students coming from cities located in the Northeast region of theUS and Canada. Our office in Miami is responsible for the activities and students coming from the South of US and our office in Los Angeles takes care all the efforts in the West Coast of both the US and Canada. We currently do not have any office located in the Mid-West so the Los Angeles office is temporarily handling this territory.
This blog has been created in order to provide another communication channel with those students wanting to learn more about IE. In here, you will be able to read about different events, news, or issues that are relevant at IE. You will find useful information about the school, the application process and life in Madrid, just to mention a few of the different things you will be able to read in this blog. In addition you will be able to see pictures and vides in order to get a better idea of what the IE experience is all about.
As you can see, each one of the authors of this blog represents another region of North America. These are: Jean Marie Winikates our representative in the West Coast, Guillermo Montes our representative in the South and Kim Janulewicz our representative in the North East. Each one of us will post relevant commentaries and news, or just anything that could enrich your overall IE experience. Also we will include things just for fun, because part of the experience is to have fun!!!
Through this blog you also have the possibility of having a consultation with one of our local representatives. By clicking on the consultation button located underneath their picture, you will be able to send each one of them a personal e-mail with questions about IE or a specific program. Also you could contact them in order to schedule a personal meeting to review your career goals and how IE may fit into them.
I thank you for your interest in IE. I am also available to answer any questions you may have about our school and our programs and to facilitate your application process. Finally, I want to invite you to keep visiting our blog and hope, in the near future, to see you all in Madrid!
