The purpose of the IQS Private Foundation, Higher Technical Education Centre, is to manage and administrate IQS, which was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1916 with the goal of educating people so that, based on a solid human and Christian education, they acquire a thorough university education with the aim of being able to hold positions of responsibility in the world of business and industry.
The highest governing body of the foundation is the Board of Trustees, which represents the foundation.
The functions and obligations of the board of trustees are the following: (i) ensure that the goals of the foundation are met, in accordance with the provisions of the articles of association and the law; (ii) conserve the goods and rights that make up the patrimony of the foundation and fully maintain productivity, in accordance with financial criteria and economic circumstances; and (iii) serve in the position with the due diligence of a loyal administrator.
The board of trustees is currently made up of ten members. The trustees shall be elected and renewed, when appropriate, by the Delegate of the Catalan Regional Platform of the Society of Jesus, so that the board of trustees is made up of people who understand and appreciate the institution and are connected to civil, scientific and economic society in the region in which IQS is based.
