President of the IESE Alumni Chapter in China

The things I learned at IESE were to prioritize issues: people and family are always at the top of my list. Also, work and life are not contradictory but mutually encouraging. There are always ways if we care enough to find them. "

What makes IESE unique is that students are not simply taught about international business. At IESE you gain experience by working in a diverse and global setting


The Alumni Association is the keystone that the alumni have to maintain and enrich their relationship with IESE. More importantly, it offers a forum that enables them to fulfill the long-term goals that they share with the school.

IESE’s Alumni Association relies on the support of various Regional Chapters all over the world. Currently, there are over 38,000 Alumni in 104 countries

IESE provides lifelong learning opportunities for the business community that are firmly rooted in academic excellence, as well as human and social values. The Alumni Association actively pursues these objectives through a variety of learning and networking opportunities, which permit members of the association and the alumni community in general to strengthen the bonds that unite them all.

The association relies on the strong support of IESE and its faculty members, who are always ready to guide them with their valuable knowledge, research and advice. At the same time, the alumni respond by supporting IESE’s projects and activities, which continue to grow all over the world, and by boosting awareness of IESE and its prestige wherever they go.
