Hoy, les recomiendo la última novela de Blanca Riestra, "Madrid Blues", que narra las vidas entrelazadas de varias víctimas del atentado del 11 de Marzo de 2004 en Madrid perpetrado por terroristas islámicos.

El Instituto de Empresa imparte cursos a compañías y directivos

Oscar Wilde no podía faltar a esta cita. A él se debe uno de esos aforismos que suelen hacer las delicias del público: ‘El hombre que puede dominar la mesa en una cena en Londres puede dominar el mundo’.

Ya se sabe. Los grandes negocios siempre se han cerrado brindando con una copa de vino. Negociar es un arte refinado, uno de los más sutiles. Quizás tan difícil como el arte de la conversación. Por eso, nadie duda que muchos acuerdos comerciales importantes han naufragado porque detrás de un montón de millones en juego no había absolutamente nada. Nada de qué hablar y, a veces, nada que entender.

Muchos hombres de empresa lo saben y hacen verdaderos esfuerzos por zambullirse en los negocios arropados por la lectura de un buen libro de filosofía, una clase de arte o la audición de una sinfonía clásica. A ejecutivos como ellos está dedicado el Executive Education que ha puesto en marcha el Instituto de Empresa, bajo la batuta de Arantza de Areilza, decana de la Escuela de Artes y Humanidades.

All eyes are on the new Rector of IE University, Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, who is set to combine his new position with his work as Dean of IE Business School. Iñiguez has taken up the challenge of making IE University one of the most important universities in Europe. This is the objective the new management team will keep in mind when they take the first steps toward converting IE University into a leading international institution.

IE University breaks with traditional university education and aims to become a benchmark institution in Europe. What are the key differentiating factors of this new project?
IE University will be an international, innovative and sophisticated centre of learning, focused on educating leaders by equipping them with a markedly global vision, an entrepreneurial mindset and humanistic spirit. IE University will be competing for top students with the best universities in Europe and the U.S. by fostering integrated, multidisciplinary research and teaching, oriented to meet market needs and demands.

Many criticize the fact that university education is so far-removed from the world of business, saying that it is too academic. What initiatives will IE University employ to bring itself closer to the business community?
IE University will serve as a bridge between Agora, or the marketplace, and Academia, the place where knowledge is generated and disseminated. The titles we will be offering in this first phase belong to disciplines like architecture, communication, arts & humanities, and organizational psychology, in addition to management and corporate law. But IE’s business slant is most noticeable in the composition of its faculty, with highly diverse profiles that provide a large capacity for research and serve as an interface with key players in each profession.
