INCAE Business School is again at the forefront of business schools in the region, ranking first in the full-time MBA category in Latin America according to the 2018 Eduniversal Ranking of the Top Masters & MBAs Programs. This is the second year in a row that INCAE ranks first.

The Eduniversal Ranking is the source of information most commonly used by prospective students and companies seeking to identify the quality level of business schools, their programs, and even their graduates. More than 4,250,000 students use this reference every year to search for the right program.

INCAE Rector Enrique Bolaños commented, "Our team constantly monitors the best practices of the world’s main business schools to offer our students international excellence with programs addressing Latin America’s reality and current context. We are excited to see that this effort has brought about excellent results. We will continue to strive in order to guarantee this level of quality for our future students."

MBA programs from IAE Business School (Argentina), EGADE Business School from Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico) and the Pontificia Universidad Católica (Peru), were rated just behind INCAE in this ranking, which takes into account programs, salaries of graduates’ first jobs, and satisfaction of graduates and recruiters as discovered through surveys. This is useful to identify the quality of the schools, as well as of their programs and graduates.

Next she added, "Being a graduate goes beyond management skills and ability to identify business opportunities. It also means having a high degree of ethics and morals both for oneself and for others."
