Methodology and Learning

Our teaching activities encompass programs of UndergraduateGraduate e Executive Education aimed at different audiences and with different learning goals.

These goals comprise not only academic content, but also the development of core competencies such as analytical and problem-solving skills, teamwork, leadership, reasoning and critical thinking.

We believe that learning can only be achieved through strong student engagement and teaching methods that ensure their active participation in and outside the classroom. Therefore, we support our educational proposal on two great pillars: student-centered learning and learning management. In addition, we have developed a series of pedagogical principles to ensure effective results in the application of these concepts in all our programs, following an adaptation process aimed at continuous improvement.

To do so, we rely on the dedication and constant improvement of our professors, focusing not only on the transmission of content but also on the effective achievement of learning goals. Most of our faculty even have research responsibility, which can be directed towards publication in scientific journals or directed towards practice.

The idea is to bring together professors of different profiles who are competent in their lines of activity, dedicated and fully aligned with our values. This is the only way we can achieve our ultimate goal, which is to develop competent and socially responsible citizens, with the courage to innovate and undertake, capable of being agents of change wherever they operate.

The result of all this joint effort focused on learning management is reflected in the high employability rate of our students (94%), low school dropout rate (around 15%) and international recognition in various spheres, consolidated with the conquest of the three certifications most important in the world.

The first accreditation, obtained in 2007, was that of the AMBA (Association of MBAs), which attested to the excellence of our MBA programs. In 2010, we were accredited by the AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), which evaluated the school as a whole and served as a reference for the improvement of our learning management methods. Finally, in 2017, we received the Equis accreditation, from the EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development). With this, we are now part of the select group of business schools – less than 1% in the world – that have the so-called Triple Crown attesting to our commitment to teaching excellence.
