Learn about the structure of the Full Time MBA

Before the program


Students take intensive one-week courses in two possible formats, online or in person. These courses serve as leveling of concepts and quantitative knowledge, allowing to homogenize the group from the beginning.

In parallel, the School of Business designs the activities that help in the most effective way possible to enhance the career of each participant. For this, the professional and sectoral background of each assistant is studied to personalize, select and coordinate works, electives, international consultancies and workshops to be carried out throughout the program.

During the program

This module is made up of 7 courses:

  • Environment: Business and society

Real knowledge for the real world

Made up of three components. The first is interdisciplinary workshops with senior MBAs on digital transformation and business challenges in Latin America. The second is international consulting projects with leading companies in Latin America, the third is participation in CEO Days where prominent CEOs discuss the current challenges of both local and multi-Latin companies.

Business Vanguard

The electives allow to personalize and individualize the curriculum to the specific interests of the assistant. The Moral Compass confronts students with moral and value dilemmas that force them to reflect on management and leadership in today's environment. The sector studies and projects update and present the trends of the main industries in the region. The final project of the program allows to integrate the previous knowledge and apply it to cases of entrepreneurship or solve real problems of selected companies.
