IE Module


The IE Module consists of key subjects for your professional development which form part of every bachelor program from the first to the third year. In this module, you will acquire basic skills that reflect the university’s culture and vision, and which reinforce the transversal components of our model (IEU Labs, advanced seminars, electives and languages). You will also benefit from progressive learning, where the content is structured to increase gradually in difficulty and in its optional character, and where you get to learn with students of all degrees.

The four pillars upon which the IE Module subjects are based on are: Entrepreneurship, Humanities, Academic Rigor, Diversity and Innovation.


On your first year you will develop a broad understanding of business organisations and you will gain specific knowledge in areas such as markets, customers, finance, operations, and communications, among others.

You will also obtain technological training to remain at the forefront of the digital area and make the most of the opportunities it offers. You will be developing as well your writing and presentation skills, essential for you to succeed professionally.


Your second year will be focused on analyzing reality from different perspectives in order to develop your own points of view, and on establishing positive conditions for your success. You will learn how to influence, motivate and encourage others towards effectiveness and productivity.

The aim of our approach to humanities is to train young innovators, visionaries and world-changers who through the exploration of humanities can discover new paths to reveal unusual aspects of reality.
