thumb incae-100"Our mission is not improving the lives of our students, but rather enabling them to change the lives of others," said Ian Boyle, member of INCAE's Founders Circle. And as it happens, INCAE seems to be on the right track since even before graduating all 56 current students of INCAE's 2016 Global EMBA II Program were making a monthly donation to INCAE's Annual Fund, thus showing their commitment to INCAE's mission. For the first time ever, an INCAE class attains 100% participation in INCAE's Annual Fund with a recurring contribution, thus creating a culture of giving and leaving this example for future classes as its legacy.

It all started with a presentation by INCAE's Rector Enrique Bolaños on the strategy pursued by INCAE. He explained to the class the pillars of INCAE's strategy to strengthen its network, with graduates' participation in annual giving as a major pillar allowing them to contribute directly to INCAE's work. And that was the spark that set it off.

Prior to that they learned about the business world in China, Peru, United States, Spain, and Nicaragua and attended class at INCAE in Managua, ESADE in Madrid, and Cheung Kong in Beijing, resulting in a better understanding on how to integrate the region's businesses with those from the rest of the world.

The students (17 women and 40 men from 13 different countries including the United States, Spain, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Honduras, and Guatemala) were excited to finally attain the degree for which they studied for 14 months. At graduation they were accompanied by Faculty, relatives, and INCAE authorities, who were happy for this new group of positive leaders.

Deans of business schools, faculty members, investors, and some of the top business minds from around the world met there to jointly outline the future of entrepreneurial education. That was the reason for the "Global unConference on Entrepreneurs" held in Israel last August 28, 29 and 30 and jointly organized by INCAE Business School and Yale University.

The event, sponsored by the Global Network of Advanced Management (NAMA), which includes INCAE and Yale, was held at the Israel Institute of Technology, Technion.

Organizers Ryan Schill, INCAE Professor and Director of the Latin American Center for Entrepreneurs, and Ted Snyder, dean of Yale School of Management (SOM), were absolutely delighted with the results, as were also attendees.
