How can you transform your traditional MBA to serve the increasingly entrepreneurial students coming through your doors?  

Since 2010 Chile's entrepreneur-friendly environment has attracted a bevy of start-ups, making it an economic growth leader in Latin America.  In 2008 GBSN member school Universidad de Desarrollo (UDD), located in Santiago, went through a complete curriculum revision and adapted their MBA program to better prepare students to be entrepreneurial leaders.  UDD is now recognized as the number one entrepreneurship education provider among the best Latin American business schools.  

Join us on March 20th for this webinar where UDD’s Associate Dean José Ernesto Amorós will share the changes that UDD's MBA program has been making to "prepare [their] students to be leaders in entrepreneurship, providing an holistic view of business based on a new business cycle.” 

During this webinar participants will: 

  • Learn about business friendly policies in Chile that have allowed new businesses to flourish 
  • Discover the successes and challenges UDD has had in transforming the curriculum to be interactive and dynamic 
  • Share ideas for new innovations in entrepreneurship for MBA curricula
