Personal and social development


The IESE Foundation is a civil initiative. Its mission consists of serving society through cooperation, with the development and promotion of education and research as drivers of the integral development of all people. This mission is based on European cultural values, which trace their roots to humanism. Excellence, improvement and solidarity are pillars of the institution, which carries out all projects altruistically.

Research – along with academic, cultural, ethical and professional education as a means of improving society – forms part of the core activities of the Foundation. Also central is the participation in health and educational initiatives in developing countries, particularly in Africa.
