INCAE, February 10, 2012. Yale School of Management invited INCAE Business School to join a new network of international business schools.
This network focuses primarily on the exchange of faculty and curriculum content, preparation and use of instructional materials and implementation of joint programs to strengthen each of the partner schools.
The global network is based at Yale University and includes leading and prestigious schools in areas of great development in the future. In total, 20 institutions are expected to become part of the network.
Other business schools that have been invited to this network are INSEAD (with campuses in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi) the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School, the University of Ghana Business School and Koç University Graduate School of Business from Turkey.
Latin America is also present with the EGADE Business School of Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico, the Business School of Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and Brazil's Getulio Vargas Foundation.
The Dean of INCAE's MBA Programs, Guillermo Selva, said he was very pleased with Yale's announcement and pointed out that it was a very creative initiative of Dean Edward (Ted) Snyder of Yale School of Management (who earlier headed the University of Chicago Booth School of Business) to strengthen the international reach of the university, facilitating relationships between schools beyond the traditional exchange of students.
"This invitation from Yale comes in recognition for INCAE's performance under international standards, as evidenced by the results of the Financial Times' Global MBA rankings ( the top 100 MBA programs) announced on January 30," said Selva.
For several years, INCAE has received groups of 35 MBA students from Yale as part of their study abroad trips. With this new organization, INCAE students who are interested in related disciplines such as finance and entrepreneurship, or social issues such as diversity.can collaborate with students from Yaleand other schools in the network
The establishment of the network also includes the participation of two INCAE alumni (and alumni from the other schools) in a Master in Advanced Management, which is a post-MBA. In this program, participants will be able to take electives in other schools at Yale University. Only alumni from the member schools may apply to this program. Yale has already secured the support of global companies for this program.
