Masterclass - Chengdu: The Renaissance of Renaissance Thinking

IE is one of the leading European higher education institutions, whose belief in innovation, diversity with more than (92% of international students) and entrepreneurship is an integral part of its drive towards academic excellence. 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 Wuhan for our Master Class – ‘The Renaissance of Renaissance Thinking’ by Professor Nir Hindi.

“Entrepreneurs are The Artists of the Business World” is one of Nir Hindi’s favourite quotations. In his various talks and workshops, he invites us to return to Renaissance thinking – combining art with engineering, science, and technology.

In this session, “A Renaissance of Renaissance Thinking – Why Business Needs The Arts”, he advocates the connection between business success and renaissance thinking – combining the brain of a scientist with the empathy and sensibility of an artist. Using examples of leaders in the business world that have already capitalized on the synergy of art and science, he raises questions such as: is it the balance between the right brain and the left brain that made this person or company successful? How can we accomplish this balance? Why should we do it? These questions help to initiate a change in paradigm.

If you are looking to learn how to stay relevant in the future this is a session for you. A “mind-blowing journey to the importance of art in business”, “game changer session” and “unconventional and one of the most unique talks I have ever attended” to name a few of the comments from his listeners.
