IEU Welcome Workshops

WELCOME WORKSHOPS TO IE UNIVERSITY STUDIES

IE University will put on workshops for high school students, letting them get a glimpse of a university student’s daily life.

These workshops have sessions designed for specific schools, as well as general sessions for incoming IE University students.

They take place outside school hours, and add value to an academic resume. Taking a very practical approach, they allow students to develop their soft skills in a creative environment.

PAST EDITIONS OF IEU WELCOME WORKSHOPS

PROGRAM ERASMUS + KA2 ENTREPRENEURSHIP WORKSHOP

On December 2nd and 3rd, IE University ran a workshop on entrepreneurship for students from five leading European institutions based in Austria, Italy, Lithuania, Spain and Sweden.
