IE Alumni Weekend Dubai

3rd & 4th of March 2016

IE proudly presents the Alumni Weekend Dubai organized with great care to bring together our alumni from the Middle East, Africa and worldwide, to reconnect, reminisce, learn and network in a vibrant setting. 

We have planned two complete days to relive the IE spirit in one of the most attractive and futuristic cities in the world: Dubai. Join us for a Talent Day, Alumni Conferences and a start-up competition, Venture Day.

The full agenda will cover a 360 degree view of the Middle East, examining macro topics such as Human Capital, Managing Diversity, Security Challenges and the impact of the media on society. On a micro level, we will examine the business context of Dubai, focusing on Emiratization, employment opportunities during the Talent Day and deepening our knowledge of trends such as Smart Cities, D3 Development, and a potential of taxation that could define the future of the city. We will also feature speakers on innovation, entrepreneurship/investment, retail and e-commerce during the Venture Day.

And of course, we have planned 2 social events as part of the weekend experience to ensure we provide you with several opportunities to network, socialize and enjoy Dubai in style.

Sign-up now to join over 200 alumni that will gather for this memorable experience!


Thursday full day event including: breakfast, lunch, coffee break and Welcome Cocktail Reception

Friday full day event including: breakfast, lunch, coffee break and Gala Dinner.
