For this edition, the name of the conference was Lighting the Future in Latin America in Times of Uncertainty: Fostering Innovation And Employability.
With the objective of promoting innovation and creation of new ideas as a solution for common problems that affect the region on these uncertain times, BALAS and ESAN held this meeting that seeks to encourage in business schools, in societies and their citizens, the creation of alternative solutions, through the progress of successful investigations cases, that contribute to the development and productive growth of Latin America.
Jorge Talavera Traverso, rector of the University of ESAN, manifested that this meeting represents a great opportunity to work with such an important North American association which gathers academics from all over the world, interested on investigations, both rigorous and relevant, oriented towards Latin America.
“Having professionals that meet BALAS' level is really important for ESAN and for the region, especially for the southern region of our continent. It is an opportunity to meet them, integrate them, to network and take advantage of the know how they bring. It’s not only important for ESAN as an organizer, but also for all the business schools and their professors to meet investigators on a global level, interested in Latin America, to develop joint publications and explore collaboration options with other institutions throughout members of BALAS”, expressed Talavera.
