Companies throughout Latin America are rapidly growing and innovating, and the skills needed to succeed in the new workforce continue to evolve. In Mexico, for example, analytical thinking, innovation, and leadership are projected to be among the most in-demand skills for organizations in the coming years.
Today, we are excited to announce the Master in Business Management (MBM) Online from Tecnológico de Monterrey’s EGADE Business School – the No. 1 rated business graduate school in Latin America. This is the first degree from Mexico offered on Coursera and is designed exclusively to help recent graduates differentiate themselves in a competitive job market and accelerate their career.
The curriculum is specifically tailored to help early stage professionals develop the digital and business skills needed for high-demand jobs throughout Latin America. Taught by internationally renowned professors and business leaders, the program covers topics such as business innovation and value creation, leadership and management, consumer behavior, and digital marketing. Instruction is primarily in Spanish and will require intermediate English proficiency for students to fully benefit from the robust course literature, including articles and case studies in both languages.
“We’re excited to partner with Coursera to provide young professionals with an opportunity to earn a Master in Business Management degree online from the most prestigious business school in Latin America,” said Eduardo Aguiñaga, National Director of Full-Time Programs at EGADE Business School. “This program reflects our commitment to developing the new generation of business leaders throughout LATAM and helping ensure they have the skills needed to succeed in the digital economy.”
The program’s fully online format provides greater access and autonomy to students throughout Latin America and beyond. The virtual experience is enhanced by enabling students to join live sessions, collaborate through immersive bootcamps, and participate in exclusive Small Network Online courses. Students and graduates of the program are also provided with a variety of career services including personalized career advice from EGADE experts, access to the Tecnológico de Monterrey job bank, talent engagement sessions with leading national and international companies, and a variety of professional networking opportunities.
Highly respected for its innovative approach to business education, EGADE is among the one percent of business schools worldwide to hold “triple crown” accreditation – including accreditations from the Association of MBAs, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and the European Quality Improvement System.
Coursera is honored to partner with Tecnológico de Monterrey and the EGADE Business School to help enhance skills development and unlock greater economic opportunities for Spanish-speaking professionals across Latin America.
