The ranking is based on the attractiveness of the school to recruiters.“For the countries in the region this is important because foreign businesses realize that in Central America it is possible to reach international goals of the highest level, and that for investors there is at least an management education and training center of the highest level,” INCAE rector Roberto Artavia said in the statement.INCAE was also recently named the best business school in Latin America for the third consecutive year by the magazine AméricaEconomía, according to the institute.
