Enrique Bolaños is INCAE’s new rector following his investiture on the Walter Kissling Gam campus in Costa Rica last night. In his first speech as rector of INCAE, Mr. Bolaños focused on innovation and quality in programs, research with impact, and excellence in operations.
Enrique will be the first non-academic rector in the history of INCAE and one of the few in business schools worldwide. Following a successful career of more than 30 years in industry he was appointed as INCAE’s Executive Vice President in 2012 and since then has been leading the transformation of the institution on an organizational and operational level.
Picturesque Guatemalan volcanoes formed the backdrop to the INCAE Presidents’ Club held last month, which brought together some of the most influential business people in Latin America, INCAE professors and international experts. Social impact strategies for the region, as well as actions to boost competitively, improve basic education and instill good governance were some of the areas touched on over the two days. The second edition of the Latin American business leaders forum, the “INCAE Presidents’ Club” took place this year in Antigua (Guatemala) with 23 members (presidents, founders and directors) from 8 countries participating.
