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!!!!
