The U.S.-Spain Fulbright Commission is one of the largest commissions worldwide and it hosted more than 200 U.S. grantees last year.

Fulbright Spain's Open Study/Research awards facilitate access to research and studies representing a wide range of disciplines.

For the first time in 2019, Spain hosted a Research Seminar for all its student predoctoral researchers and scholars. Given the success of this seminar, the Commission intends to hold a similar event each year.

The Master in International Relations prepares students to face global challenges with a more sustainable vision of business and project management. It trains students to become influential leaders who can transform and truly make a difference in the public, private, and non-profit sector. This program is designed for recent graduates and early to mid-career professionals with backgrounds in Business, International Relations, Economics, Political Sciences, Law or Social Sciences. Other backgrounds such as Engineering, Finance and Humanities are also welcome.

\n

The Master in International Development is a unique collaboration between IE and the United Nations System Staff College, with a curriculum focused on the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The program also includes soft and hard skills, as well as a Specialization Track. This program is designed for recent graduates and young professionals with backgrounds in International Relations, Economics, Political Sciences, Law or Social Sciences. Other backgrounds such as Engineering, Business, and Humanities are also welcome. 

\n

The Master of Laws, defined by its comparative methodology and international orientation, gives students hands-on experience in skills such as cross-border transactions and transnational law to propel their international ambitions. Students can either specialize in one of three major legal fields—International Business Law, International Dispute Resolution, or Intellectual Property and Technology Law—or earn a General LL.M. that provides an overview of all three fields. A Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from an accredited US law school or a first law degree (JD, LLB, or the equivalent) from a law school in countries other than the United States is required to earn the LL.M degree. Exceptional candidates with backgrounds in Political Science, Economics, History, Criminology, or similar will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for an MsL degree.

English Teaching Assistants assist teaching staff at the early childhood, primary, secondary and/or university level for up to 16 hours per week, with an additional two hours for planning & coordination meetings. Responsibilities include assistant-teaching, in English, subjects such as social studies, science and technology, art, physical education, English language. Other activities include directing conversation groups, in some cases, with school staff, and leading special programs such as Global Classrooms (Model UN) and Speak Truth to Power (STTP). ETAs are also expected to actively engage with their surrounding community. 

\n

According to Spanish law, English Teaching Assistants must always be accompanied in the classroom by a Spanish teacher and are not allowed to take on full teaching responsibility. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended that applicants have some formal teaching practice and experience developing classroom resources, as only limited teaching training will be provided upon arrival and during the grant period: this is not a teacher training program. Candidates are expected to be able to prepare their own teaching materials; interact positively with students, teachers, and administrative personnel at their schools; and to demonstrate initiative in the classroom. ETAs will be expected to be available for classes held in the morning, afternoon, and or evening, depending on each institution's individual needs.

English is the lingua franca at IE, but it is a generic, international English (neither predominantly British nor American).

About the Schools

\n

IE School of Human Sciences & Technology offers interdisciplinary, career-centered master programs designed for recent graduates and early to mid-career professionals seeking intense and focused training to accelerate their careers. These programs develop graduates who have specialized expertise required for success in their chosen fields, possessing the professional and leadership skills necessary for navigating the modern workplace.

\n

IE School of Architecture and Design redefines design education based on pedagogical and technological innovation, project-based learning and environmental responsibility. In an international and entrepreneurial environment, the IE School of Architecture and Design seeks to bridge the traditional gaps between academia and the professional world and to connect architecture and design with the broader society.

\n

Moreover, we believe that architects and designers are unique professionals who can see opportunities where others see obstacles. They can approach problems with an understanding of many viewpoints and by using their multiple techniques and tools, they can envision the future.  This ability to understand space and imagine things in three dimensions differentiates designers from other professionals. However, it is not enough to envisage future projects and designs, one must be able to sustainably bring them to fruition. We often work in teams and through the process of analyzing, testing, refining, innovating and testing again, we can come with the best, sustainable solutions. 

\n

Finally, to be a top school means striving for excellence in many ways. The people who make up our School are outstanding academics and professionals, with a love of teaching, who are also experienced professionals in diverse roles. They are always seeking new ways of sharing and creating knowledge. Our use of technology for teaching and for experimenting, as in our FabLab, means new ideas, flexibility and keeping up to date with the latest developments in the field. 

\n

Upon successful completion of the Master in Strategic Interior Design, graduates will receive the private diploma from IE School of Architecture and Design.
