The other side

The Other Side of IE Professors brings you videos about IE’s greatest assets, namely its professors. What we are trying to do here is to find out a bit more about each professor’s area of knowledge, and to get an idea of what they are like out of their natural habitat. We all have other lives and more than just one side, and evidently our professors are no exception, although sometimes we only associate them with the classroom, exams, and research.

The main objective is simply to get to know them better and to help get their knowledge out there in whatever way we can. In order to do this, each video is preceded by a conversation over coffee, or in a hall, or in the street, when time is of the essence, and where we talk about everything from the divine to the human. We use the things they tell us, along with other things drawn from our own imagination, to create a story aimed at reflecting their personality and what each one teaches or is interested in.

We very much hope that you find this new initiative both useful and entertaining.
