thumb INCAE firmasTimes change and so do the needs of students and companies. The one-size-fits-all full-time MBA is no longer the best way to fulfill these needs. This is why at INCAE we have redesigned our full time MBA so that it continues to be the best option for brilliant young professionals who intend to forge a better future for Latin America.

On April 22nd, Susan Collins, the Dean of the Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan and Enrique Bolaños, President of INCAE, signed an agreement between the two institutions for a double degree allowing students from all over the world to study the MBA in INCAE, followed by a Masters in Public Administration at the University of Michigan. In a similar vein, in Connecticut in March, Luis Umaña Timms, Executive Director of the MBA at INCAE signed an agreement on behalf of the school with the University of Yale for a double degree.

Starting this August, INCAE will also launch its Global MBA, a one year full-time program taught in English in Costa Rica. The new design includes core MBA subjects, internships and now the option to complete a double degree. The Global MBA is aimed at two types of candidates: international students wishing to complete a world-class MBA in Latin America, and Latin American students looking for internationalization and a strong link to the region.
