A Chinese Version

IE Business School Dean, Sanitiago Iniguez, is always on the go, ready to spread education around the world. As a matter of fact some call Dean Iniguez: the globe-trotter Dean!!! Not so long ago he was in China to present the Chinese version of his book “The Learning Curve.”

Here he talks about how globalization has to deal simultaneously with global and local driving forces, using Shanghai’s skyline to illustrate how these forces are interwoven.

He also says that good managers are only made over time. Don’t miss his tips on how to become a good manager!!!

The Seven Summits

The Seven Summits are the highest mountains of each of the seven continents. Summiting all of them is regarded as the ultimate mountaineering challenge. Entrepreneurship Prof. Joe Haslam pursued that challenge until he decided it was high time for a change.

Ever since then, he has been doing all sorts of things – writing, entrepreneuring, teaching… – but mainly what he has been doing is sharing his passion for life…

Don’t miss his “mountaineering” tips for entrepreneurs!

IE Business School Professors – Second Season 2013/14

IE Business School Professors are a crazy knowledgeable bunch who don’t think twice about revealing what makes them tick and how their passions in life often serve to illustrate key points about the subjects they teach.
This video features just some of the professors who gave us insights into their lives and specializations over the course of the last academic year. I hope you’ll enjoy this reminder of Simon Hirst’s love of photography, Michael Aldous’s penchant for tea, the love story inspired by Gaudi told by Luis Miravitlles, Manuel Bermejo’s homage to family businesses from Mexico, Martin Boehm’s hot dog-fuelled walk down Wall Street, Marijo Bos’s urban hike in Istanbul, Julio de Castro’s passion for golf, Juan Fernández’s analysis of the US government shutdown with the White House as backdrop, Alber Sabanoglu’s walk around the ancient Jewish quarter in Toledo, Silvia Leal’s big wheel adventure, Amber Wigmore’s gracefulness on ice, and Shameek Sinha’s murder suspect interrogation ordeal(!).
I’d just like to add a very big thank you to all the professors who have been the subject of Other Side videos with such enthusiasm and good grace, and don’t mind admitting that I’m looking forward to discovering the other side of many more IE professors this coming year!

You never know too much

Finance professor Francisco López-Lubián is as passionate about finance as he is about the cinema. By the way, he’s not only a finance professor, he’s actually the head of the finance area at IE Business School. He’s also worked for the finance industry for quite some time. But most of all he just loves films.
That’s why we decided to cast him as the main character in a finance crime movie entitled “You Never Know Too Much,” as you can see in this trailer for the film. Don´t miss his references to films like The Godfather, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, or Amores Perros, not to mention The man who knew too much… Enjoy.

Climbing

If IE University professors are a crazy and knowledgeable bunch who don’t think twice about revealing what makes them tick and how their passions serve to illustrate key points about the subjects they teach,
History Professor Miguel Larrañaga is a prime example.

This Professor of History and Vice-Rector for Student Affairs can scale a rock face like a mountain monkey, and I don’t mind telling you it was pretty scary to see him up there on that steep mountainside just climbing and talking about the great mountaineering achievements of people like Reinhold Messner and the like…

He talks passionately about mountaineering and he talks passionately about history. If I had to sum him up in a few words, I would say that he lives the way he talks, always true to himself and what he does. He has also authored a book that is set to be published very soon!!!!
