In the international week, held from October 17 to 21, EGADE Business School offered, at its Santa Fe site in Mexico City, the module Strategic Innovation and Management in Emerging Markets: Latin America.

Throughout the week, participants explored subjects with a focus on Mexico and Latin America, such as innovation (in processes, brands, and corporations), business culture, protocol and etiquette, the economic and social outlook, and the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The sessions were delivered by EGADE Business School professors Fernando Moya, Eric Porras, Cristian Granados, Juan Carlos Rivera, Raúl Montalvo, Edgar Centeno, José Ernesto Amorós and Alfonso Avila.

Guest speakers in this module were Anna Nikina-Ruohonen, Global Visiting Professor at EGADE Business School, and Alfonso Becerra Cid, director of Strategy and Innovation in the Mexican Football Federation.

One of the highlights was The Spice Jar Challenge, a team activity in which the participants created salsas and then presented their products to the professors; travel writer Alicia Boy; Gerardo Delgado, executive chef at the hotel Parque México Boutique; and Elsa Frías, CEO of Banquetes Elsa Frías.

The group visited MCS Group Dubbing, dubbing, audio postproduction, and dialogue translation studios, as well as the pharmaceutical company Sanofi México.

Participants also enjoyed cultural activities, visiting the Teotihuacán archeological zone and the National Museum of Anthropology, with professor Valeria Sánchez serving as their guide, followed by a mezcal tasting session at the restaurant El Mexicano.
