Times change and so do the needs of students and companies. The one-size-fits-all full-time MBA is no longer the best way to fulfill these needs. This is why at INCAE we have redesigned our full time MBA so that it continues to be the best option for brilliant young professionals who intend to forge a better future for Latin America.
On April 22nd, Susan Collins, the Dean of the Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan and Enrique Bolaños, President of INCAE, signed an agreement between the two institutions for a double degree allowing students from all over the world to study the MBA in INCAE, followed by a Masters in Public Administration at the University of Michigan. In a similar vein, in Connecticut in March, Luis Umaña Timms, Executive Director of the Masters Programs at INCAE signed an agreement on behalf of the school with the University of Yale for a double degree.
Finally it seems a major change of mentality that will help face the future is taking place, as now future business leaders are demanding bolder action to address climate change. That was indicated by a survey conducted among 3,700 students from top business schools, including INCAE. The survey was selected to be read by major world leaders during the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP21) in Paris.
"The role of business firms in society is changing. Business leaders need to understand the complex nature of sustainability issues and provide solutions to social and environmental challenges, with an eye to good financial results," said Peter Bakker, President and CEO of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). The survey was developed by Yale University and the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), with support from WBCSD.
