Interview: PhD Andrew Hoffman, professor at University of Michigan

Why did you decide to go in the field of sustainability?

Well I started because I cared about environmental issues, that was my primary concern. I started when the word sustainability didn’t exist. And so, I’ve always been focused on protecting the environment, that’s what motivates me. I started as a chemical engineer and then moved into the business.


Campus Life

Once admitted to INCAE, MBA students move to Walter Kissling Gam campus to reside during their period of study in Costa Rica. INCAE becomes home to these young people who enroll in the master's program.

The dynamics of living in shared houses with peers creates an environment that transcends social interaction beyond the classroom. Similarly, both sites have areas suitable not only for study, but also for recreation and participation in various sports.

The dining hall service is an included benefit for all students. It serves lunch and dinner on weekdays and lunch on Saturday. Those students entering the master's program with their family will stay in a house just for them.
