Quarterly APAC Networking Cocktail

Featuring Professor Michael Wenderoth

We look forward to catching up with the APAC community along with season's greetings.

As the year 2015 is coming to the end, IE Asia Pacific Team in Madrid would like to take this opportunity to invite anyone who has an interest in APAC to the year-end edition of Quarterly APAC Networking Cocktail, sharing what has happened in APAC while building a stronger regionally-focused professional network.


Director of International Development for APAC Region at IE, Mr. Joël McConnell, will be giving an update on our key activities in 2015 and a sneak peak into what's coming in 2016 from a region development and recruitment perspective.


Professor Michael Wenderoth will be giving a talk on "The Macro View: Key developments in APAC and what they mean to a newly-minted IE MBA”. In this brief lecture, he will provide an executive summary of the key trends in APAC region, but with a focus on bringing them down to earth. What do these macro trends mean to business leaders, and in particular to you, a newly-minted IE student, in terms of job prospects, career planning, living a global life?


We will be inviting Zane Bahari-Robart at APAC Business Club to share the club's outlook in 2016; Regine Chung, our IMBA alumni from Malaysia graduating this year after her exchange to Kellogg will also be sharing her IE experiences.
