Our learning model puts students at the centre, is eminently practical and ensures that they acquire not only the technical know-how but also the mind-set and interpersonal skills that are essential for a successful future leader. With its centrally located Madrid campus, international student community, and dynamic learning environment, IE is the perfect place to develop your career.

We would love for you to join us in Guangzhou for our Master Class – ‘The New Era of Scaleup Entrepreneurship’ by Professor Joe Haslam.

For entrepreneurial activity to translate into economic growth, entrepreneurship education needs to focus less on the “start” and “small” side of things and more on how companies of all ages, sizes and sectors scale. After all, the company founders and successful entrepreneurs that we know today are famous not because they started but because they scaled. 

A scaleup can be described as any organization that is undergoing rapid growth. Most businesses are surprised to see that past practices do not work well when going from 1x to 2x and 3x. That is because scaling up a business is qualitatively different from starting it. Scaling up needs a growth mindset and important decisions to be taken in areas such as purpose, product, process and people. 

Join Professor Haslam for a masterclass titled "The New Era of Scaleup Entrepreneurship" where he will explain how the entrepreneurship landscape is changing away from startups and towards scaleups. 

You can also take the ieGAT (General Admissions Test) if you have already begun your application.

Additionally, you may take this opportunity to sign up for a 1-to-1 Informal Interview, if you what to know more about IE
