cohepLast May 2nd INCAE signed in Tegucigalpa an agreement with the Honduran Council of Private Enterprise (COHEP) to strengthen and maintain a relationship between both organizations. INCAE is committed to including COHEP as a favored client, with several benefits for COHEP's members and employees.
The agreement was signed by INCAE Dean Alberto Trejos and by COHEP Vice President Juan Carlos Sikaffy. It includes benefits for COHEP member companies in INCAE's Executive Education portfolio, making INCAE an ally in developing COHEP's management team.

"I think this agreement opens the door to two types of cooperation. First, INCAE's mission is similar to COHEP's; it has to do with providing opportunities for Hondurans to take advantage of the different ways INCAE serves the region. The agreement will support us precisely at that point.
