Curriculum | INCAE Master Programs


It is a world-class MBA led by the best Faculty in Latin America, whose student body is made up of more than 14 nationalities.

The program is made up of blocks of mandatory courses balanced between the functional areas of administration. It lasts 14 months: 12 on campus in Costa Rica and 2 months doing a Management Consulting Project. This program offers the possibility of double degrees and study tours outside the region, as part of the “Global Network Week”.

During the project (MCP), students are exposed to the current economic and business environment under the guidance of a professor. By implementing what they have learned, students gain experience in areas such as decision-making, group work, and others.
