Latin American Business Schools Rise With Social Entrepreneurship

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Latin American business schools are drawing more international students and launching more MBA programs with a unique focus on entrepreneurship and social responsibility.

Dean María de Lourdes Dieck Assad’s mission is to make entrepreneurial leaders of her MBA students. A key focus of Mexico’s EGADE Business School is to develop leaders who generate economic and social value for the country’s emerging economy.

Her school’s vision of integrating economic, cultural and social value is helping to create a new breed of business school.

Latin America has lagged behind the US and Europe in the MBA market but the region’s educators are moving away from a focus on academic and technical skills to one of entrepreneurship, innovation and social responsibility.
