Description

Helping You Strengthen Your Financial Industry Network from Day 01.

We want to help finance students who’ve come from across Europe to create a strong IE finance community across Europe, that can help each other keep up to date on constantly changing European financial markets, to create a forum for career advancement where IE finance degree alumni share job opportunities with each other, and finally, to provide ongoing events and activities only for IE finance program graduates. This event is being organized by the International Development Department’s Europe team, and the aim is to make the transition to Madrid an easy one, again for candidates that will be joining a finance program and that have come to IE from the European region.

What to Expect from the Finance in Europe Event.

We wanted to provide three parts of content, before giving everyone the chance to network over drinks and food. For this event we’ll have the following speakers each present individually, and then we’ll host a short panel where the audience can interact with all three speakers.

1) Insights on European Financial Markets: Damian Rubianes IE Business School Professor.
2) Alumni Insights from One of Europe’s Largest Financial Institutions: Diego Salvador, BBVA Asset Management.
3) European Fintech Companies Going Global: Ben James, Tradeplus24 (Zurich-based, and majority backed by Crédit Suisse)

From a content perspective we wanted to start at the broader end of the funnel, and have Professor Rubianes give you an idea about the European financial market and what to expect as you re-enter the labor market in Fall 2019. Then, focusing towards career progression, we wanted to have one of our alumni speak to you about how to develop your career in a major financial institution. Finally, we are flying in Ben James, CEO of a successful Fintech company to talk about his company’s business model, and how they are expanding beyond their European base. As you know, Fintech is an increasingly important focus of the Master in Finance program at IE Business School.

Event Location and Views Over Madrid.

Given the focus of this event we have been very lucky to find a location that fits perfectly with the focus, and that’s the Finance Club (Club Financiero) which has arguable the best views over Madrid. Located on Columbus Square (Plaza Colon), we’ve confirmed the Columbus Room (Sala Colón) for the formal content of the event, and then guests will be invited to an open-air, rooftop cocktail afterwards to mix and get to know each other. Expect to see some of the most impressive views over the city, from the top of the Edificio Colon. Beyond being a meeting point for financial professionals, at the foot of the building you’ll likely see the statue of Christopher Columbus, and since you too are starting what will surely be an eventful professional journey, we also thought this to be the perfect location for a first event aimed at building your professional network in Europe – and beyond.

Event Target Audience and Guests

We are hosting this very special event for incoming Master in Finance (MIF) degree candidates from Europe, as well as candidates for the Global Master in Finance and Master in Advanced Finance programs which start in October 2018 and April 2019 respectively. We also will be inviting selected alumni from the financial sector and company representatives interested in meeting MIF candidates from across the European region that will be looking for full time placements starting September 2019. Given the Finance Club (Club Financiero) has graciously agreed to host us for this event, we have a limited number of places open for Club Members as well. IE staff will be on location to facilitate the event agenda and make introductions during the networking cocktail.
