This is the second recognition the school has received recently, after last month’s QS Global MBA Rankings 2019, which rates EGADE Business School’s MBA as the best in Latin America, and consolidated the position of its Master in Finance as the regional leader and 43rd on the global level.  

Educational innovation for the development of entrepreneurial leaders
