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.
The TIMES for the extensive period can be found on the website of each Lab.

IEU LABs require your commitment to work hard and enjoy a full hands-on internship-like experience on campus.

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.
The profile of the students is young, with fresh thinking outside the media orbit, and they also have enough preparation to generate ideas with real business value. In addition, they have the ability to translate their thoughts into strategic ideas that make sense. They have passion and commitment, and they work as a team. My feeling is that several of them could already be part of a professional team focused on strategy and product.
Very good strategy and proposals for digital activation. I want to hire you!
The collaboration initiative allows for an interesting bidirectionality between first-year students, who do not yet have any prejudices or conditioning factors generated during a specialized training process, and the company. It is also an opportunity for the company to contribute to the development of the students and the transmission of company values.
I have been very impressed by the work and efforts everybody put into the project. Every team came up with a peculiar aspect and feature of the analysis. I would be more than happy to continue working with whoever wants to join a research project on a longer-term horizon.
We cannot stress how wonderfully impressed we were with the work ethic, thought processes, ideation, and execution on display. The students worked incredibly well. We feel honored to have had them not only choose Ocean Beer to work on but to have done so as diligently as they have.
Thank you for the incredible work you have done, the professionalism and the degree of depth in the project you have dealt with. It has been a great pleasure for me to work with this team, and I hope that this will be something that will be continued each year.
We are really pleased that this partnership with IE has brought us this far in our collaboration. I am sure that the work you have produced will be useful and every contribution counts towards realising children’s rights to water and sanitation in Burundi.
We are very grateful for this exchange, which has been very helpful at this start-up stage. We would be happy to continue collaborating with you in the future so we can further develop this line of action.
The work that the students have done has been very creative and professional. It has helped us to have an external perception of the project, presenting elements of high quality and professionalism, as well as making very significant teamwork.
You have managed to become a part of the team with your involvement and dedication. Thanks to your work and recommendations, we have been able to freshen out our social networks. We hope to continue collaborating with you in the future.
The University’s initiative of the LABs is extraordinary, since it provides foundations like ours the opportunity to enhance our social actions. The students have done a great job and showed a great commitment and dedication.
The project’s presentation was great. I love to see fresh ideas that enrich our daily environment. The students worked hard to meet the deadlines, and it was obvious that they were well prepared.
Very good analysis, definition of personas and strategies and good ideas with a clear storytelling.
