Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME)
PRME provides a global network for academic institutions to promote corporate sustainability and social responsibility, and a framework of engagement for incorporating universal values into curricula and research.
¨INCAE is proud to be part of PRME. I hope this platform gives us the opportunity to learn from other experts and institutions, as well as share our experience and knowledge. To achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Business Schools around the world need to support each other to take our individual impact to the next level. This is our universal responsibility. ¨

PRME principles at INCAE
Sustainable development and responsible leadership are part of the philosophy and vision of INCAE Business School. These values are embedded in the school's MBA and Global Executive MBA programs, as well as its various specialty courses, student clubs, and other academic activities.
Examples of these programs are: Women's Executive Leadership Program, the Young Leadership Program (YLP), Social Responsibility - Competitive Advantage for Sustainability and Growth, and the Sustainability specialty offered in the MBA.
INCAE develops and promotes dynamic learning experiences. The case study method is the best example of this. INCAE creates and develops original educational materials that focus on sustainability.
These materials are created by members of the faculty, research centers and various chairs. It has also implemented new teaching methodologies, particularly those designed to work with the base of the pyramid markets.
INCAE's research focuses on the analysis of issues that are highly significant for the business community and the creation of proposals conducive to the sustainable development of Latin American countries. Topics such as: women's leadership, competitiveness, sustainable development, regional security, innovation, energy efficiency, social investment and agribusiness are included.
INCAE makes its research findings available to governments, business sectors and society in general, in an attempt to exert a positive influence and be a driver of change in the region.
INCAE fosters relationships based on mutual interest between corporations and organizations operating in Latin America, establishing solid alliances to fulfill INCAE's mission.
In 2014, CLACDS became the strategic partner of the Social Progress Imperative (SPI). Since 2015, SPI has led the Mesoamerican Social Progress Program, which promotes the use of the Social Progress Index at the local level in a growing number of countries, including Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama.
In addition, since 1996, CLACDS has been a regional partner of the World Economic Forum, conducting and analyzing the Executive Opinion Survey, which is the basis of the Global Competitiveness Report.
This dialogue is presented in a way that makes the mission of INCAE explicit as a fundamental means to understand challenges, share ideas, promote actions, and strengthen understanding between governments, civil society, and the private sector.
Issues such as sustainability, social responsibility, and responsible leadership play a key role in the ongoing dialogue, deliberation, and debate that takes place between INCAE and various interest groups.
INCAE has two academic venues: the Francisco de Sola Campus, located in Montefresco, Nicaragua, and the Walter Kissling Gam Campus, located in Alajuela, Costa Rica.
In both campuses, practices such as: waste management, projects to reduce carbon emissions, energy efficiency and awareness and education activities for the Inca community are carried out.
