This month IE Business School launched an exciting and innovative new curriculum for our International MBA degree, and we invited some noteworthy guests to celebrate with us. IE has always embraced entrepreneurial thinking, and our new program is one of our most forward-thinking yet.
To mark the launch, on April 14th we held The Unconvention – An Event Out Of The Ordinary. The event was a fantastic success, with over 240 live attendees and more than 300 attendees via live streaming from all over the world.
The event was also covered extensively on Twitter and was a trending topic in Madrid! You can see the the event recap with this Storify. We’ve also picked a few images from the event below, but you can see the full photo coverage of the event on the IE Business School Flickr album!
Marc Randolph: “One of the great things about this school (IE) is the multiculturalism of it. There´s a tolerance and a respect and understanding that business is conducted in hundreds of languages around the world and you have to be able to deal with those differences.”
