About the Schools

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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