Elena Jimenez-Arellano

Born in Madrid with Aragon and Basque Navarro roots, passionate founder and director of ITEM, I combine my consulting job with teaching International Business and Financial Management at Schiller International University where I enjoy teaching and sharing experiences with my international students. I also practice as professional and life coach.

For years I worked as a manager at Orvalle school where I also had the privilege of teaching economics and being advisor and mentor of a wonderful group of students with which I now maintain a warm friendship. During that time I had my MBA at IESE Business School, one of the world most prestigious business school.

Then I spent a year in Boston, USA, where I attended classes at Harvard and I was fortunate to become familiarized with NESE School of English and Bayridge Residence, where I learnt many things and made many friends from around the globe.

After that, I spent a year and a half full of emotions, working as Logistics manager organizing one of the biggest global events: the World Youth Day Madrid 2011. It was an unforgettable experience where I met wonderful people and had the opportunity to meet His Holiness the Pope Benedict XVI.

I then went to Trieste, Italy, to teach macroeconomics at UWC Adriatic. It was an enriching experience teaching students from 87 countries.

Now I am fully committed to make a difference in the educational world through ITEM and my classes.
