Baume & Mercier is the partner of the IE Business School in Madrid, one of the greatest establishment in the World. They launched a fantastic new project : EPIC (Extraordinary People Inspiring the IE Community). EPIC is an initiative launched by the IE Global Alumni Relations, aims to share the stories of the outstanding alumni across all IE schools (masters and undergraduate programs) to inspire the IE Community.
We were very proud to be the main sponsor for this first edition, which took place last 27th of May, in the mythical Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid. Our friend of the brand Esteban Granero, soccer player at the Real Sociedad gave a talk to the 1200 Alumni who attended the IE Alumni Forum, in which he explained his philosophy : "The key to success resides in determination".
At the end of the conference, Alain Zimmermann, CEO of Baume & Mercier opened the ceremony of the EPIC Awards. A Classima watch was given to the winner of each of those 5 categories: Young and Ambitious Mind, Women inspiring women, Creators, Human Success and Business Impact.
EPIC Alumni perform in their personal and professional lives by the same standards of excellence that have been taught at IE’s undergraduate and master programs.
