IE Business School (Instituto de Empresa) of Madrid Spain presentation in New York on July 19

The IE-Instituto de Empresa (Enterprise Institute) Business School, located in Madrid, Spain, is ranked among the top business schools in the world. (Surprising that until a week ago I had never heard of it...)

Apparently one does NOT need to be fluent in Spanish to participate in their programs, as they offer degrees taught in English as well.

While the IE does not offer a "quant" degree, they do offer several flavors of the Masters in Finance, which is apparently ranked very highly:

"Master in Finance", targeted toward recent college graduates:

"Master in Advanced Finance", targeted toward individuals with more experience in the field:

I'm sure that Andy will be pleased that they do disclose their placement results:

Apparently, one can even complete the bulk of their new "Global Master in Finance" degree online, with just a pair of two-week residencies in Madrid, plus a third in London:

Anyhow, the reason I am bringing this up now is that on Tuesday, July 19th, the school will offer a free lecture in New York City by Kevin Spellman, a faculty member who apparently splits his time between Wisconsin and Madrid. The lecture topic is "Master Class: How the financial crisis is changing portfolio management". It will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the offices of Banco Santander, 45 East 53rd Street in Manhattan.

Advance registration is required via the below link:

It sounds like this will be a "recruiting event" to increase awareness among New Yorkers of the various programs offered at the IE Business School.
(Hopefully they will serve tapas... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapas )
