IE partners with Emzingo to offer the Social Impact Lab in South Africa

The Social Impact Lab is a cross-functional project in which IE Business School collaborates with the leadership development company Emzingo.

The goal of the program is two-fold: to provide students with hands-on and innovative learning opportunities that give them the chance to apply what they learned at IE Business School and participate in a project aimed at improving the welfare of low income communities in South Africa.
