INCAE, October 24, 2012. On October 19, INCAE joined the PIM Network, a prestigious business school network with a strong international orientation, said the Dean of MBA Programs, Dr. Guillermo Selva.
The Partnership in International Management (PIM) brings together 60 institutions from around the world, including first-rate schools like the University of Chicago-Booth School of Business, UCLA-Anderson School of Management, HEC School of Management, New York University-Stern School of Business, the University of Michigan-Stephen M. Ross School of Business, ESADE Business School and the Indian School of Business-Hyderabad, among others.
PIM schools voted to grant INCAE member status. The decision was communicated during the 39 Annual PIM Conference held in Lima, Peru from October 17 to 19.
This meeting, hosted by ESAN University, was attended by INCAE's Dean of MBA Programs and the director of International Programs, Dr. Alexandra Esquivel.
The Partnership in International Management is today a consortium of top business schools from around the world that exchanges select graduate students for one academic term. Member institutions share a reputation for upholding the highest degree of academic excellence both regionally and globally.
Dean Selva explained that INCAE was very interested in being part of this network because it would provide more opportunities for student's internationalization and facilitate the execution of joint projects, among other things.
Furthermore, INCAE will now be able to offer members schools tailor-made programs like the ones designed in recent years for NYU, Cranfield School of Management, UCLA, Michigan and the joint seminar with Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. "In the upcoming weeks, we will be promoting an open program for MBAs and EMBAs of our partner schools, which we will be offering in the summer of 2013," said the Dean.
Selva explained that since INCAE was nominated for PIM membership last year, the director of International Programs, Alexandra Esquivel, has worked to establish six new agreements with UCLA, Cornell, St. Gallen and other schools in order to comply with PIM's requirement to have agreements with at least 20% of the schools in the network.
As part of this effort and in the near future, INCAE expects to sign yet more agreements with PIM schools like Booth School of Business-University of Chicago; Kelley School of Business-Indiana University at Bloomington; NUS Business School; Tsinghua University-School of Economics and Management; and Guanghua School of Management- Peking University.
