Discover the history of INCAE
A deep footprint in the region

The history of INCAE begins in 1963, when the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, visits Costa Rica and holds a summit with Central American presidents. Under the banner of economic and social progress, regional leaders highlighted the need to strengthen business education in the region.
Thus, in 1964, at the initiative of the governments and the Central American business community, and with the support of Harvard Business School, INCAE was founded after the graduation of the first class of the Senior Management Program-PAG, in Guatemala.
For six decades INCAE has transformed the way business is done in Latin America, positively impacting the present and future of the region. The school will continue to revolutionize its learning methods to respond to the needs of the market, while remaining true to the ethical values of responsible leadership.
