By Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, Executive President of IE University

A main mission of business schools is to bridge the Academia and the Agora, the research world and the world of business. However, a main criticism over the past years has pointed at the irrelevance of academic research, the disconnection between knowledge generated in academia and real management issues.

Business schools are not the only ones under fire for their research irrelevance. Similar debates are currently underway at Law and Architecture schools, for example, showing a shared malaise among “clinical” or professional schools, where connectivity between research and real world’s needs is a must. This issue is not new, and was already identified by Immanuel Kant, the German philosopher and an academic himself, who said that there is no such thing as theoretical or applied research, simply good and bad theories: the good theory is always applicable into practice.[1]

Over my brief presentation at the next edition of the Drucker forum in Vienna (28 November), I will deal with some initiatives that may be implemented to combat this irrelevance of research, as well as to enhance to role of business schools as catalysts between the academic and the business worlds, exposed in my book “The Learning Curve”.[2]I will also refer to the convenience of ascribing the academic discipline of Management into the realm of the Humanities, instead of the Social Sciences –in line with what other thinkers suggest: e.g. Peter Drucker, Henry Mintzberg, Roger Martin.[3] Read more…

Written on October 4, 2018 by Administrador de IE Blogs in Arts & Cultures & Societies

IE Creativity Center officially invites all IE community to the opening of “Boundless Localisms” Exhibition starting October 4 to December 15. Alberto Fernández Hurtado (Segovia, 1975) has led workshops with IE students since November 2016 at the Creativity Center. Together, they built a boundless universe of learning. Each localism (nationality, background…) influenced the other. The exhibition’s purpose is to offer a glance at a storyline about overcoming challenges, the influence on others as well as the making of a community beyond preconceptions.

On the occasion of the 800th Anniversary of the Convent of Sta. Cruz La Real (Segovia)

Segovia, 10-12 June 2019

Abstract: The model of the birth of universities in Europe has long been established taken as a model the developments that occurred in continental Western Europe particularly as a result of well-known processes: the Carolingian Renaissance, the vernacularisation of culture, the increasing relevance of cities, the empowerment of new social groups. Nevertheless, in large parts of what today is considered Europe, let alone Eurasia, the social and intellectual factors that defined this emergence of universities were often not present, or not all of them. In areas where the process of Christianization, and sometimes also literacy, had taken place later, or where the role of monasteries as the only centres of learning and literary activity lasted longer, or where a more or less permanent warfare existed, or where the adequate social environment had not yet been developed, the scriptoria and the libraries of monasteries and convents kept learning and cultural traditions for longer, often against all odds.

The aim of the present conference is to discuss and analyse, among others, aspects and questions such as:

  • What was the role of royal patronage in pushing forward this model of transmission of knowledge?
  • What is the impact of manuscript techniques (vis à vis the printing press) in the intellectual history of these areas?
  • How did the monastic environment conform the literary/philosophical/scientific/theological canon?
  • What was the educational role of these institutions?
  • How the knowledge transmitted was censored or slanted, if it was?
  • What social impact did these monastic learning communities have in their respective social environments?
  • How was the process of creation of universities in these areas, when and by whom?
  • In which respects, if in any, were nunneries different from the male counterparts?

Arqueología para altos directivos

Written on October 1, 2018 by Administrador de IE Blogs in Arts & Cultures & Societies

La vida de Cayo Julio César es la de una transformación de un manipulador en un líder, la de un hombre que no tuvo miedo a rodearse de gente mejor —Avieno era un militar superior—, pero que terminó confundiendo ambición con codicia —quiso hacerse con el poder absoluto— y eso acabó con él. Esas reflexiones le sirven al escritor, economista y consultor Javier Fernández Aguado para explicar a los responsables de empresas algunas reglas básicas sobre liderazgo y toma de decisiones, entre otros muchos ejemplos de la historia con los que escribió el libro Roma, escuela de directivos, publicado en 2012. Ejemplos similares a los que volverá a utilizar en los seminarios que la Universidad del Instituto de Empresa (IE University) tiene planeado ofrecer a altos ejecutivos en el yacimiento celtíbero y romano de Tiermes, en Soria.

De momento, la Universidad tiene lista una prueba piloto de un fin de semana para ofrecer a empresas y administraciones, con la que esperan, además, sondear el interés que despierta la idea. Ya está preparado, a la espera de firmarse, un acuerdo con la Junta de Castilla y León para poder usar las instalaciones de Tiermes; los talleres de formación se harían en las salas contiguas al museo. El programa —que se llama también Roma, escuela de directivos— se completa con una visita guiada al yacimiento, que alberga una gran ciudad romana que, fundada en el siglo I antes de Cristo sobre un asentamiento celtíbero previo, cuenta entre sus joyas con un acueducto y un foro.

“La visita sirve para explicar cómo la toma de decisiones —de carácter político, económico, urbanístico— marcó la historia de ese yacimiento”, explica Miguel Larrañaga, vicerrector de Estudiantes y profesor de Humanidades del IE University. Y resume: “Se trata de formar a directivos utilizando la historia y la arqueología. Queremos ofrecerles una perspectiva distinta sobre temas que son clave para la gestión y que puedan incorporarlo en la gestión de su día a día”. Read more…
