The MBA Global Perspective focuses on providing the necessary tools to students who require comprehensive training in different management areas. It allows students to refine their managerial experience by consolidating it with the study areas of the program.
It has been developed with the purpose of actively promoting the development of the countries served, educating leaders in key sectors by improving their practices, attitudes, and values. The direct impact of our students on companies in Latin America improves the quality of life and the business environment. The program allows students to have an experience with a global perspective, which is considered fundamental by employers.
We construct a differential component in the profile of future managers who would have a transversal position in the company. The program is intended to replicate in the classroom the interdisciplinary challenges that in real life require the integration of knowledge from different areas of administration.
It is a world-class MBA led by the best Faculty in Latin America, whose student body is made up of more than 14 nationalities.
The program is made up of blocks of mandatory courses balanced between the functional areas of administration. It lasts 15 months which include a Management Consulting Project. This program offers the possibility of double degrees and study tours outside the region, as part of the “Global Network Week”.
During the project (MCP), students are exposed to the current economic and business environment under the guidance of a professor. By implementing what they have learned, students gain experience in areas such as decision-making, group work, and others.
As an integral part of INCAE’s mission, the multinational and multicultural experience students benefit from are as important as academics. With this in mind, INCAE fosters relationships with other universities and business schools of similar academic quality, to offer students a unique addition to their INCAE education.
The 34 business schools selected for Student Exchange and Double Degree programs offer INCAE students the opportunity of experiencing life and business environments in other countries and regions, thus expanding their global vision of business and relationships.
The Student Exchange Program allows bilingual students (Spanish-English) at INCAE to go to one of the partner schools for one semester during the first half of the second year of their MBA. The following are eligibility requirements for the exchange programs:
- Be in the top third of the class, with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
- Have full mastering of the English language.
- Cover the cost of all travel and living expenses.
Students from any other university may apply to INCAE through the Freemover program, which allows us to receive students interested in studying our MBA program for a period of time. The International Programs department will study each case, and the freemover must take care of all procedures needed to enroll at INCAE from their home institution.
