IE prides itself on its diversity. Having students from literally all over the world is one of the most unique thing that an educational experience can pride. Many think that diversity is overrated. However, it has been proven diversity does improve performance. Check out this HBR article. Learning to work with different people may be difficult but it forces you to express yourself better because people outside your culture may not understand why you do the things you do. It forces you to learn and adapt. It basically pushes you outside of your comfort zone, which is the place where true growth happens.
That is why we have this students section to learn about the diverse student population at the MIM. We interview a new person each time to provide you with a glimpse of the diversity that we have here. If you would like to be interviewed or think that someone else should be interviewed, please drop us a comment and we’ll get back to you!
