Gustavo Roosen, President of IESA said "I take this opportunity to thank Professor Rosa Amelia González for her contribution, determination and dedication during the years in which she has been Academic Dean. She is a model of constant search for excellence, despite the difficult circumstances of the environment. An example of this is, among other contributions, her leadership of three processes of reaccreditation and obtaining our fourth seal of international quality (NASPAA). Her work has been vital for IESA during these years, in which she has sacrificed her personal goals on many occasions to obtain institutional achievements. Likewise, under the direction of Rosa, IESA has managed to maintain a Faculty dedicated to teaching and research."
