The prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) recognized EGADE Business School in its Innovations That Inspire 2018, in the category “Strengthening the Understanding of Effective Leadership Development”, for the implementation of the talent development program Wave.
“Students take the Wave test to identify their leadership skills. Afterward, they participate in workshops that enable them to improve these competencies as well as those pursued at EGADE Business School. The aim of this initiative is to increase students’ and their businesses’ competitiveness while addressing current market demands,” AACSB commented.
AACSB highlighted that since Wave was first implemented by EGADE Business School’s Talent Development Program in 2015, 1,405 students have taken the test and received group and individual feedback.
“We are extremely grateful for this honor, which reflects our ongoing progress in our mission to develop leaders with an entrepreneurial and humanistic mindset, who are internationally competitive and contribute value to their companies and to society,” said the dean of EGADE Business School, Ignacio de la Vega.
Since 1916, AACSB has certified the highest standards of excellence, quality, and intelligence in business education and professional development services.
EGADE Business School forms part of a select group of multi-site business schools who have earned the prestigious “triple crown” of international accreditations –AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS– recognized as the top standard in the business education sector.
