thumb Taller de casos 2015Training instructors to teach the way Harvard does. That is the goal of the Case Study Writing and Teaching Workshop offered by INCAE to train Latin American teachers and researchers on the case method. This teaching approach, pioneered by Harvard Business School slightly over 100 years ago, remains to this day the hallmark of top business schools worldwide, including INCAE.

The case method aims to teach students how to apply knowledge directly to real-life situations of actual companies around the world, to reinforce learning and know how to perform once they graduate. In addition, it allows instructors to see issues from different standpoints and learn from class discussion.

pacheco-sagreraMaría Pacheco and Ricardo Sagrera, INCAE graduates, have been recognized as one of the first 100 AACSB Influential Leaders. Maria's and Ricardo's work exemplifies the innovative mindset and meaningful contributions to society that INCAE graduates display around the world and every day—whether they operate within large corporations, small businesses, or the nonprofit sector.

Guatemalan María Pacheco has worked hard on the development of rural areas through Kiej de los Bosques, a social enterprise she founded, dedicated to exporting jewelry made by local artists, under the brand name, Wakami. Her company exports the products made by Guatemalan artists from 17 rural communities to 14 countries. "INCAE nominated María because she is really an example of how a good idea along with the right tools and dedication, can help poorer areas move to a better more prosperous future" explained Enrique Bolaños, Rector of INCAE.

enrique-pIt's been more than 50 days since the change of President at INCAE. Time is relative and although nearly two months have gone by, for Enrique Bolaños, INCAE's new President it seems like yesterday. Nevertheless, aside from living on a plane between Nicaragua and Costa Rica, Enrique Bolaños has put the pieces in place to start his presidency with a strong focus on excellence in INCAE.

When you speak to Enrique, you realize that he has a clear intention to listen to the ideas and needs of all INCAE stakeholders. In his first 50 days he has visited more than 20 companies from the region and beyond. He has also started the initiative "Dialogs with the President", interaction spaces with different internal groups: professors, directors, staff and students. The first "Dialogs with the President" took place on June 12 and 15 in Costa Rica and Nicaragua respectively. Yet it hasn't all been about listening, but also about taking action.

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.
