Dr. Jurgen Brucker, Dean of External Relations & Development of the University of St Gallen and Maria Eugenia Marin, Director General International Relations of IE University, recently signed a general agreement to promote undergraduate and graduate exchanges between the two institutions. This exchange agreement will particularly benefit the Master in International Relations (MIR) of the IE School of Arts & Humanities. The MIR program plans to send and receive two IR students every year as of the 2012/2013 intake. According to IE School of Arts and Humanities Dean Arantza de Areilza: “The agreement comes as part of the MIR’s internationalization efforts and outreach to peer universities. An exchange with a prestigious institution such as St Gallen in Switzerland can only enrich the experience of future MIR students studying at IE”.
