Los nuevos graduados son de ocho países de América Latina y el Caribe.INCAE, June 27, 2013. Thirty private sector professionals from eight countries in Latin America and the Caribbean graduated yesterday, June 26th, from the INCAE Business School's first Modular Advanced Management Program (PAG). The new Incaistas received their degrees at a ceremony held at the Walter Kissling Gam campus in Costa Rica. The PAG's academic director, Dr. Esteban Brenes and Dean of Executive Programs, Dr. Camelia Ilie, were present at the ceremony. The PAG offers two different modalities, to give participants the best possible options.

The first is a residential program, in which participants spend approximately one month at the Walter Kissling Gam campus in Costa Rica. The next residential program will take place this coming July 1-26. The second modality is taught in modules, which is a more flexible alternative since it consists of three 7-day modules that are taught in Panama and Costa Rica.
The first module of this first Modular PAG took place in Panama, April 18-24. The second module was taught in Panama, May 16-22, and the third in Costa Rica, June 20-26. During the ceremony, the student with the highest grade in the final module, Kim Waigel, from Panama, and Valedictorian of the Modular PAG-2013, Erasmo Jaramillo, received special recognition. Jaramillo's gave the ceremony's concluding remarks. The PAG, the only program of its kind in Latin America, is one of INCAE's most renowned programs. It has been taught since 1964, and has graduated more than 5,400 professionals from different nations of Latin America.En la ceremonia de graduación estuvieron presentes el director académico del PAG, el Dr. Esteban Brenes y la Decana de Programas Ejecutivos, la Dra.

As part of the PAG, students learn about factors in the business environment—such as changing conditions in the world economy—that could affect a business's development, so that managers can adapt the strategies, vision and objectives of their organization to neutralize any threats and take better advantage of opportunities. In addition, they analyze the internal resources that companies can make use of to cope with a highly competitive environment, and participants are introduced to a range of innovative, high-level managerial tools and techniques.
