The Truth behind the Veil

IE’s Sabine Yazbeck with students from PSU

A group of sophomore students – all women – from Saudi Arabia’s Prince Sultan University (PSU) visited the IE Business School campus to give a presentation about their school (the PSU College for Women) and what life is like in Saudi Arabia.

In addition to describing the every day in Saudi Arabia (the food, culture, government, economy, and dress) the students strove to right misconceptions about Islam, pointing out its coexistence with other religions and its positive attitude toward women.  As women, they were in Spain (both Madrid and Cordoba) to show “the truth behind the veil.”

In the photo above, IE Business School’s Sabine Yazbeck meets with the PSU students after their presentation.
