If it wasn’t for the gowns and mortarboards, you might think you were attending the Summit of the Americas at the INCAE MBA 2015 graduation. Listening to the graduates, their families and INCAE professors you hear a full range of Spanish dialects. The graduates come from 15 Latin American countries, the US and two European countries.
It’s been a busy few weeks for INCAE and a couple of the highlights have been the graduations of the two editions of the INCAE MBA. The 104 graduates of the 21-month MBA taught on the Costa Rica campus celebrated their commencement on 22nd May, while the 81 graduates of the 15-month MBA Camp taught on the Nicaragua campus, graduated on 29th May.
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.
