Today’s rapidly changing world calls for entrepreneurs who question the status quo and are able to leverage people, resources and processes to produce dynamic solutions. As spatial design activities and the global construction industry experience unprecedented transformation, there are endless opportunities for those with the courage to stand up and take them.

The IE School of Architecture & Design’s MBArch Entrepreneurship Challenge is a response to this context. Whether you work in architecture, landscape, construction, urban design and planning, interior design, civil engineering or other related fields, this is your chance to demonstrate your passion for entrepreneurship and the built environment. Above all, we’re looking for bold, creative minds, able to harness change as an opportunity for innovation.

The challenge is open to young professionals who have between two and 10 years of relevant experience and are able to work effectively in English.

Registration opens from December 9 but don’t delay—you will be up against a vast array of innovative, highly disruptive individuals.
