With campuses in Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey, plus satellite locations across Mexico, IPADE Business School at Pan-American University offers students a chance to immerse themselves in the culture of Mexico while obtaining an MBA with a global focus.
The 22-month full-time MBA program encourages global consciousness and teaches students to work from an ethical and strategic perspective. The school offers nine different academic areas, ranging from administration to energy sciences and the environment. Primarily utilizing the Case Method, students engage in personal study, teamwork, and professor-led plenary sessions to learn from business cases based on real organizational challenges.
At IPADE, the focus is truly global. An international exchange experience allows students to further develop a global perspective, and a summer internship provides opportunities to practice newly learned skills in real business situations. During an intensive International Week, students engage with other MBA students from top business schools from around the world. Academic study trips, a global case competition, and a diverse student body give students plenty of opportunities for networking in a global environment.
Since its founding in 1967, IPADE has maintained an Advisory Committee with members of the Mexican business community and representatives from Harvard Business School and IESE Business School. According to their website, the committee meets every other year to synthesize information and teaching perspectives in North America, Europe, and Latin America. Along with many other programs, the committee keeps IPADE involved in the international community.
For applicants seeking a comprehensive learning experience with a global focus, IPADE Business School is a good option.
