The pursuit of educational excellence is a praiseworthy goal in which the business world has much to say and contribute, especially with regard to business schools. Engel & Völkers is very aware of this commitment to society and education and, therefore, it has just become a patron of the IESE Business School, one of the most prestigious on national and European level. This is a full-fledged partnership that will bring multiple benefits to both parties.
The official event in which the status of E & V Patron was formalised took place on May 16th, a very important date for the academic institution, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of its successful patron business program. Taking advantage of the agenda of activities within the framework of this event, the representative of E & V Barcelona, Oriol Canal, received the certificate that accredits the new status of our firm. Logically, for Engel & Völkers Spain, in general, this is a great satisfaction to be able to join our trajectory with an institution as well-known as the IESE.
As a supporter of the University of Navarra, the IESE business school has more than 200 collaborating companies and its programs of study are chosen by the best students from all over the world. Year after year, the different rankings that evaluate the teaching quality of educational centres of an entrepreneurial or economic nature place IESE as a reference space in the European context. Moreover, in 2015 and 2016 IESE was chosen by the Financial Times as the best training centre in the world for executives.
What are the advantages that Engel & Völkers offers for this new collaboration? In addition to sharing the merits of such a reputable institution, our company can offer very advantageous conditions to those who rent property from our catalogue in order to study at IESE. For example, students may benefit from discounts in most training programs, free assistance to forums or special events, reduction of fees on additional services, get preferential treatment for admission to the most popular courses, personalised advice and a more intense collaboration in research matters.
As a counterpart, E & V is committed to participating in the financing of all types of initiatives by IESE, including research work, teacher training, scholarship, student aid schemes and expansion of the centre's facilities. These are set goals with a clear social background by the positive repercussions of the improvement in the training of entrepreneurs. Foreign students who opt for the wide range of rental properties in Navarra will be able to make the most of these offers by Engel & Völkers.
