The IE Foundation has received a generous donation from Guillermo de la Dehesa and his wife, Michèle Barbé, of a total of 20,000 books for the IE University Library. Thanks to this contribution, the IE University Library will expand its content with specialized collections and works on disciplines including economics, finance, business management and administration, humanities, and art, among others.
All volumes will be freely accessible and will form part of the library’s virtual catalog to facilitate online searches and support the work of researchers, students, alumni, and society in general.
In recognition of this extraordinary contribution to research and education, as well as Guillermo de la Dehesa’s dedication to IE University, the IE University Library will now be known as the Guillermo de la Dehesa Library.
Guillermo de la Dehesa has had a brilliant and extensive career internationally, in private corporations, public institutions, non-profit organizations, and academia. Guillermo de la Dehesa has also been Chairman of the International Advisory Board of IE Business School since 2002, and Trustee of the IE Foundation. He has published, as author or co-author, almost 100 books and over 300 articles in national and international publications.
