decades"Twenty years ago, a number of world leaders who transformed the region forever came together at INCAE. These included Stephan Schmidheiny, Michael E. Porter, and Jeffrey Sachs, to mention only those best known. We have been lucky to keep this wonderful Project (CLACDS) operating since then, creating and disseminating knowledge, helping train better leaders and always maintaining a vision for the future and how we can better get ready to serve in it," said Doctor Roberto Artavia, Chairman of INCAE's Board of Directors.

Thanks to these and other decision-makers, the Latin American Center for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (CLACDS) was created two decades ago.

CultureLast February 17, INCAE's Cultural Night held at Campus Walter Kissling Gam was filled with emotions, delicious snacks from different countries, joyful, colorful presentations and especially a pleasant atmosphere where all participants paid tribute to their countries of origin and enthusiastically made them known to attendees.

Luis Umaña Timms, Executive Director of INCAE's MBA Programs, welcomed those present. "From the beginning INCAE classrooms have been a place to exchange ideas, knowledge, values, and culture. We celebrated cultural diversity long before the term was coined as such and became fashionable. Diversity was and is a key part of learning in the classroom and an inevitable part of coexistence at on-campus houses."

innovateProfound demographic changes combined with technological progress can result in the loss of up to seven million jobs in the next five years. The World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs Report mentions that most of those disappearing are administrative and office jobs.

Alternatively, crises or transformation bring about new opportunities. In the future, employers will require professionals with higher degrees of specialization, new knowledge, skills and competences. Technical and problem solving skills as well as critical thinking are increasingly valued.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics confirms this trend, adding that logistics and operations jobs will increase up to 26% in the next five years, as will audit, accounting and finance jobs.
