They hail from eight different European universities including Luigi Bocconi University in Italy, St. Gallen University in Switzerland, HHL University in Germany, and Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, among others. Between August and December 2016 they stayed at INCAE campus in Costa Rica and enjoyed the INCAE experience.

"In addition to the cultural experience of living in a Latin American country, the added value of the exchange involves taking courses perhaps not offered at their universities, learning how to do business in Latin America, and networking with people from all over the world," said Executive Director of INCAE's Masters Programs Luis Umaña Timms. He added that INCAE has engaged in these exchanges since 1997.

This is the vision driving INCAE to enhance women inclusion in the labor world, senior management, and decision-making we face today as a society, a vision shared by Cargill, a company with over 50 years of experience nurturing and developing communities in the region.

It has been proven that companies with more women on their boards get a ROE 35% higher as well as a total shareholder profit which is 34% higher (Catalyst). This leads to a need to enhance the competitiveness of companies in the region in order to accelerate and contribute to Latin America's inclusive economic development. This is achieved through better opportunities given to women and by promoting collaborative leadership resulting in value in organizations and societies through research, education and impact.
