Jose Luis Amaíz
Executive Education

“The PAG is an unforgettable personal and professional experience. In undergraduate, specialization and similar programs, it is very difficult to be taught to think like a manager and to understand that specialists will not be the ones called to run companies. The true manager that forms INCAE is a person who, above all, is a person and who as such becomes a motivating and inspiring leader of his team. He is passionate about strategy, but obsessive about proper execution, monitoring and control ”.

Testimonials

“I knew that being at INCAE was going to be an important tool for me. A lot of the tools and rubbing that I got on the PAG I'm using now. They have been fundamental for my professional development in the business area ”.
