School Data

INCAE is among Latin America’s top business schools. The institution offers a two-year MBA in Costa Rica and an intensive 15-month MBA in Nicaragua. The curriculum pulls heavily from the school’s historical ties to Harvard (former Havard Dean George P. Baker helped to establish the school in the 1960s) by blending case studies with hands-on experience.

In their first year of the 21-month program, MBAs learn broad leadership and management techniques. During their second year, students participate in a Management Consulting Practice; this immersive course allows students to select a company or industry in Latin America, the U.S., or Europe for an intensive consulting project.

MBAs can delve deeper into their preferred study paths through three majors: Finance, Sustainable Development, and Technology. They also have the option of earning of a Bilingual or Spanish MBA.

For students interested in global or specialized experiences, UNCAE also offers a Master’s in Global Real Estate, a Master’s in Strategy and International Management, and an Executive Global MBA.
