“The objective of INCAE Master Programs is to educate leaders and businesspeople who will transform companies and organizations in Latin America and the whole world. Fifty generations of MBAs have graduated from our programs and now lead world-class organizations, helping to improve the productivity levels and quality of life of the countries where they work. Many INCAE graduates also play leading roles in society, both in the private and public sector. The experience acquired in INCAE Master Programs makes a huge difference in our graduates’ lives. Professionally, they gain a variety of management tools which allow them to successfully lead companies in different industries and from different positions. At a personal level, the transformation is also significant. The rigor of our programs and the constant interaction under the guidance of a team of professors with doctorates from the best universities in the world allow our students to develop their talent and potential to their fullest extent.” Arturo Condo, INCAE Business School President
