“Latin America is preparing for a new wave of infrastructure and energy activity, fueled by new public private partnership frameworks, rising political and economic stability, and a workforce increasingly equipped to manage large and complex projects. The opportunity for infrastructure investment in Latin America is enormous. Private sector investors are uniquely placed to help fill this gap in the region if they can recognize and address the specific needs of each project and country.”

-- Hector Morales, Senior Advisor for Latin America, Macquarie Capital, July 2018


With 600 million consumers, an economy sized at USD 5.3 trillion, and USD 3.7 trillion in consumer buying power, Latin America is a diverse, vibrant region, with tremendous potential for business.

This program provides business executives with knowledge and skills related to the international business environment and business practices in Latin America. Developed and delivered by a team of three Bauer College faculty with extensive professional, academic, and personal experience in the region, the workshop combines regional trend analysis with in depth study of business opportunities. In an interactive format, participants acquire the skills to develop successful business strategies for Latin American markets and consumers.
