That was the topic discussed by Jorge Vargas Cullell, Director of the State of the Nation Program in a lecture organized by INCAE's Center for Collaborative and Women's Leadership (CCWL) and Vital Voices Costa Rica, last August 9th at the Costa Rica Country Club.

This event is part of CCWL and Vital Voices efforts to support women development in the region.

The prize was a valuable opportunity to participate in Bain's recruitment process.

To meet the challenge three groups of students among the top 13 groups in the Management Consulting Project (MCP) were selected to travel to Mexico City to work for 4 days developing an actual corporate strategy case for a client of Bain & Co. with only one group winning.
