Five (thousand) reasons to study with a worldview

December 11 2018
Executive Education INCAE

The world is getting smaller, closer, less frontier and less alien. Markets are part of that world and, therefore, businesses too. The technology allows, in just five minutes, a farmer in southern Chile to ask an expert in London for advice on a specialist in Osaka to compete against a Chinese company for Ontario consumers, for example.

In two decades of the XNUMXst century, globality has taken an increasing speed and we are going there, whether we want to or not. We can't stop it, but yeah take advantage to know him more and better. Hear from on-site experts, visit iconic companies, make friends who don't even speak our language, taste that food we never imagine in life, and understand how a little human behavior can disrupt a billion dollar industry. 

It's called "global vision" And no one in business would deny it But from said to fact there is a huge gap. It is the gap that is reduced with specialization programs designed to make the mentality of the students go over the borders with a greater possibility of success. 

That is why the INCAE Business School alliances with McCombs School in Business at the University of Texas, Harvard HBX, Darden School of Business of Virginia, Babson College, Cheung Kong in Beijing, ESCP Europe Business School in Paris, and Esade in Madrid

This is what Ramiro Casó, Director of Marketing and Communication, explains that, having completed the Executive MBA and still pursuing a master's degree in Business Analytics, summarizes in five points the enormous advantages that INCAE programs offer in terms of a global approach.

1. The academic heritage: Added to the recognized quality of INCAE teachers and methods are the contributions of other recognized schools with complementary methods and teachers who are world-leading truths in their areas and sources of inspiration, even long after completing their master's degrees.

2. A networking that nobody pays for it. The high level and diversity of the fellow students, the meetings with professionals from other schools and the access to spaces that can function almost as small mentorships. 

3. Immersion in business. Companies of all kinds, world leaders or successful ventures are visited to learn about successful models and visions that do not necessarily coincide with those we have in our companies. What's more, they certainly don't match.

4. Know the "harsh reality" of other cities. It is not about spending stuck in a hotel or looking at a blackboard. No, it is also about walking around the city, visiting its restaurants, its museums or its markets to try to understand how you live, how you think and how you consume.

5. Personal experience, the one that does not repeat itself between one and the other. Individually, socially and professionally. Growth and the option to open more doors than can be anticipated.
