    World-class professors:

    The professors at IESA use the Participant-based Learning (ACP for its acronyms in Spanish) methodology promoted by the Harvard Business School and applied in the best business schools of the world. Using cases and simulating a real environment, the students are the protagonists and conduct business practices geared towards decision-making focused on the real conditions in the organizations and the country. Their valuable contributions to our talent shall be aimed at:
    • Funding the professorship for our Master's degrees
    • Enabling our professors to complete world-renowned PhD studies abroad.
    • Ensuring that our professors are trained in the Participant-based learning (ACP) method.

    Impact: 90 Master's degree subject matters covered by 2015 - 8 professors completed world-renowned PhD studies abroad by 2015 - 150 professors trained in ACP by 2015.

  • Investments on students

    Investments on students:

    No postgraduate student shall be excluded from our programs for economic reasons. 

    IESA's graduates are leaders who implement world-class business practices and values, and who are capable of designing and applying solutions adapted to any complex and challenging context.

    IESA 2015's vision is to extend its programs to the training of managers and entrepreneurs. We need to train many more leaders for Venezuela and Latin America with solid technical backgrounds, excellent business skills and sound human values to attain a better understanding of the complexities of the surrounding environment. To increase the impact of our graduates on an environment that demands that we aim high, we aim at:

    • Doubling the number of Master's degree graduates.
    • Offering financial support to full-time students admitted to our Masters who lack the economic means, to offer them a chance to train as managers and entrepreneurs.

    Impact: 2,800 new Master's degree graduates by 2015 - 140 Master's degree graduates through scholarships by 2015.

  • Entrepreneurs

    IESA's 2015 Campaign / August. 14,2013

     To foster and sustain the enterprising spirit and the spirit of progress in Venezuela and Latin America.

    Since its foundation, IESA's Center for Entrepreneurship has trained more than 1,000 leaders, including close to 150 micro-entrepreneurs in production activities, more than 30 new farmers in the Paria region and more than a dozen investors in new businesses.

    Our IESA 2015 vision aims at multiplying the capacity and expanding the scope of our Center for Entrepreneurship. To this end, we propose to intervene in the following scopes:
    • A corporate initiative: to strengthen active entrepreneurs and avoid them from disappearing.
    • Social enterprising and micro-entrepreneurs: to contribute to the success and sustainability of entrepreneurial ideas that promote wellbeing and inclusion. We also expect to foster the fund-raising capabilities of micro-entrepreneurs.
    • Entrepreneurial Competitiveness Agenda: to articulate an entrepreneurial agenda that envisions public policies and the institutional framework for the future, aimed at raising public and private productivity and strengthening the production sector.

    Impact: 15 thousand entrepreneurs trained by 2015.

  • Energy and environment

    Energy and environment:
     Generate value in the energy industry and prepare its leaders for upcoming challenges.

    IESA's 2015 vision is focused on contributing to the sustainable development of Venezuela and Latin America, by means of research and training activities that multiply energy-related knowledge of the highest level.

    IESA's International Energy and Environment Center (CIEA or Centro Internacional de Energía y Ambiente in Spanish), promotes the generation, reflection on, and dissemination of, energy-related knowledge and sustainable development.

    We want to continue researching and fostering exchange networks that back the design, implementation and evaluation of public institutions, regulations and policies for the energy industry in Venezuela and the Latin American region.

    300 new graduates from the 2015 International hydrocarbon business management program.

  • Technology and infrastructure

    IESA's 2015 Campaign / August. 14,2013

    Technology and infrastructure:
     Top-notch education experience for more students, for worldwide efficiency.

    In IESA's classrooms, the learning process goes far beyond merely endowing participants with tools and knowledge: it is focused on developing a commitment to learning and the ability to offer accurate judgments.

    To achieve this experience, it is fundamental that the classrooms be spatially distributed and designed for debate as well as have state-of-the-art IT platforms, including simulations, networks and backup tools in the classrooms.

    Investments in technology and infrastructure cover the following activities:
    • The adaptation of classrooms to the Participant-based learning methodology;
    • The revamping of backup areas for executive training students;
    • The redesign of administrative areas to use the spaces more efficiently;
    • The updating of the IT system.
