MBA for Women

Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling as MBA Women

Representing half of the world's available talent, women have tremendous untapped potential to influence the expansion, innovation, and establishment of businesses throughout the globe. In a 2019 report by the International Labour Organization, two-thirds of companies surveyed agreed that diversity initiatives have significantly improved their business outcomes. Further, with a growing number of women being elected to political leadership positions, the “role model effect” suggests that this trend of political empowerment will correspond with increased numbers of women holding senior management positions in businesses worldwide.

By virtue of their unique perspective, women in the workforce are already equipped to provide the ideas and expertise needed to invigorate boardrooms and lead companies through the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Refining this raw energy, the MBA path for today's working women will guide them through the dynamics of power, toward the upper echelons of the business world.

    The methodology opened the possibility to think about the case problem based on the law, the theory and the case precedent. This is something that I could not have achieved by simply studying for the certified tax accountant examination.

  • Going to Japan has been a dream of mine for a long time, so when I had the opportunity to go on an exchange semester, there was no question that I wanted to do it in Japan. I chose the NUCB Business School as it is a top ranking school in Japan and offers a teaching method which is very different to the one in my home university.

  • I chose the NUCB Business School because in addition to its reputation, ranking and important dual accreditation worldwide, it is located in one of the most powerful economies in Japan which is Nagoya. Here there is a multicultural experience that we can live in every class, sharing the same classroom with people whose background and culture is totally different than in South America would help me to develop new skills and new ways of doing business around the world.
