IEU Labs are IE University’s alternative to traditional work placements. They provide hands-on, internship-like experience on campus to first and second year students that wish to start gaining professional practice. There are many IEU Labs for you to choose from, and by joining one you will not only get to build your professional profile and gain valuable practical knowledge of different sectors, but you will also have direct contact with managers and directors of leading companies, extending your professional network.
Fully-tutored working spaces where students develop professional projects and work closely with companies and institutions. An excellent opportunity for students who want a hands-on experience, to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge and professional skills.
All students from any program are welcome to apply to any IEU Lab, although they are specially aimed to 1st and 2nd year students.
IEU LABs require your commitment to work hard and enjoy a full hands-on internship-like experience on campus.
Enroll in a maximum of 1 Lab each year.
Each Lab will count for 3 ECTS credit, offered at no extra cost.
From the Talent & Careers department, we would like to reinforce the importance of the experience that students can gain while participating in the LABs provided by IE University. Early contact with the business world is highly valued by recruiters, and in many cases, Lab experience marks the difference in the selection processes of companies looking for interns during students’ senior academic years.
The Lab experience allows students to start structuring a professional career, giving them the opportunity to gain real experience in companies, which will be of great value in IEU students’ professional development.
