INCAE, the most prestigious business school in Central and South America in line with the 2016 Financial Times MBA Ranking, has signed a new agreement with Prodigy Finance, an online platform offering financial assistance to prospective graduate students.

Thanks to this agreement all foreign students admitted to INCAE's MBA Program will be able to receive financial support for up to 80% of all expenses incurred during the MBA. This includes tuition, food, daily activities, and other living costs. Costa Rican and Nicaraguan students will only be able to use this funding when the MBA is pursued at an INCAE campus outside their own country.

thumb YEP2016Today's world is moving too fast and Latin Americans do not want to be left behind. After college, youth must keep thinking about the next steps to successful careers and how to make a positive impact on the region. Last June 6th INCAE opened its doors to youth between 19 and 29 to help them find an answer through its Young Executive Program (YEP).

"When I saw YEP's discussion topics I found them extremely interesting. I felt it was a good opportunity to improve my skills and to learn about different cultures and ways of thinking," said Madelín Agüero, who works as a Commercial Assistant for Bancolombia in Panama. Something similar happened to Fabio Cavassa, a sales representative at Procter & Gamble Peru, who says, "I liked the proposal, which was like a shorter MBA. I was even more impressed when I inquired about INCAE and discovered it is a top business school."

thumb ips-salvador-webcast-botonIn order to review country performance you need to look beyond GDP. For this reason, the recently launched 2016 Index of Social Progress aims to show how the world's countries are doing in terms of economic, environmental, and social issues. The indicator pointing at Finland as the world leader displays results that change the way we perceive which the most developed countries of the world really are.

In a presentation in El Salvador last June 30, representatives of INCAE's Latin American Center for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (CLACDS), together with the POMA Foundation and the Social Progress Imperative, showed how the Index includes 53 indicators measuring opportunity, healthcare, education, and non-discrimination to complement GDP in order to provide a more comprehensive view of country development.

thumb Roberto Artavia"Social responsibility is no longer optional for businesses. Competitive, environmental, and social factors demand companies to take action to create value. CSR, still optional back in the 80s and the 90s, is now a must for organizations willing to compete sustainably." This is how INCAE Chairman Roberto Artavia explains why INCAE's Executive Education Department launched a new program on this subject.

The program gathered 21 participants from nine different countries last June 14 - 17 on the campus of INCAE in Costa Rica. The lessons taught were the result of 20 years of learning by INCAE, CLACDS, and Viva Trust on topics such as sustainability strategies, triple bottom-line performance evaluation, responsible operations and investments, and more. All was arranged following an efficient, effective format to transfer knowledge to business executives and their companies.
