Who Are the Main Education Stakeholders?

Written on May 23, 2016 by Santiago Iñiguez in Education

santiagoBy Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, Dean of IE Business School and President of IE University.

A main cause behind the globalization of higher education, and business schools in particular, is the internationalization of stakeholders. Marshall McLuhan’s global village has its global school house. As people move more freely and frequently between countries, they require education that is both portable and flexible. Imagine, for example, that you are half way through a three-year part-time Masters program and your company decides to transfer you to a different country. You would not be very happy if you had to start your degree all over again. You would expect your educational provider to find a way to allow you to complete your studies. Similarly, if you were on a full-time MBA program but had to go back to work, you would hope that you could switch tracks to a part-time program. These are just some of the issues that business schools have had to address in recent years. The overall effect is a much more flexible approach to degree programs and learning methods.

The upshot is an internationalization of “stakeholders”, that is to say an internationalization of the different special interest groups active within higher education, from the teaching staff and students, to the management and sponsors of universities. For example, a growing number of companies now recruit graduates or finance chairs at universities, while the existence of exchange programs for students and teaching staff, such as Erasmus, have made universities more diverse places.

Given the global shift in education, countries that adopt protectionist measures in education, preventing the entry of foreign universities or other higher education institutions, or refusing to sign up to supranational initiatives, will end up on the periphery of the educational world, and lose their best and brightest talents. Opting out of the international mainstream means stagnation and decline. Read more…

During this academic year, the IE Humanities Center has organised a Cycle of Conferences focused on Russia in which we have had the opportunity of discussing Russia’s past and present from different angles, from cultural to economic, from literature to cinema.

Prof. Kelly, Pilar Bonet and Prof. Torres

We have been fortunate enough to enjoy the presence of renowned world specialists from prestigious universities worldwide, as well as professional from other areas, in both our campuses, Madrid and Segovia.

The cycle started with a round table in which Catriona Kelly (Professor at the University of Oxford) and Pilar Bonet (Correspondent of El País in Russia) discussed perceptions and self-perceptions of Russia both historically and nowadays. The debate focused around questions currently raised in Russian and foreign press and Russia’s inte rnational politics (January 28th, Segovia)

In order to get a better understanding of Russia’s geopolitical position, an economic expert in Emerging Markets from BBVA Research Division, Álvaro Ortiz Vidal-Abarca, joined us to present and dis cuss the current figures of Russian economy in order to better grasp what are the real opportunities of Russia as a BRIC country in current competitive global markets. Our Professor Patricia Gabaldon of Economic Environment of the IE Business School hosted the session and the debate (February 18th, 2016).

After discussing current economic affairs, we turned our eyes back into the past, for which we counted with the presence of two great historians Pierre Gonneau (Université Sorbonne-Paris IV) and Simon Franklin (University of Cambridge) to discuss historical ghosts and historical constructions and how do they affect international relations and current conflicts, such as the one in the Ukraine nowadays. The session took place on March 3rd in Segovia. Both sessions in Segovia were hosted by the Director of the Seminar Susana Torres, Professor of Humanities at IE University.

The last conference this academic year was presented by Jaime Dezcallar, film director and enthusiastic specialist on Russian cinema. Jaime presented with the help of fascinating videos and multimedia material the history and social and political uses of Russian cinema since it began at the beginning of the 20th century, and all its artistic and technical innovation throughout this century and How these new language deeply influenced great masters of the cinema such as Alfred Hitchcock. The session took place in Madrid on April 21st and it was hosted by Fernando Dameto, Deputy Director of the IE Humanities Center.

Another session, focused on Russia’s international relations, presented by Ambassador Francisco Javier Elorza, former Ambassador in Moscow, will take place at the beginning of next academic year. We look forward to it!
