February 20, 2009

Costa Rica´s University for Peace announced a new master´s program designed as an MBA for sustainable development professionals.

The United Nations-charted university near Ciudad Colón, west of San José, will launch the M.A. Program on Responsible Management and Sustainable Economic Development in September, UPEACE said in a press release.

“We believe that it is essential for those interested in international affairs, the prevention of conflict, and the advancement of human rights and equitable social progress to have a thorough understanding of the world of economics and business,” UPEACE rector John J. Maresca said.

The program is 11 months long, requiring 40 credits – 32 in coursework, eight for an internship or project and final written assignment – to graduate.
