Costa Rica News – I am sure some of those students experiencing the cold Michigan winters would not mind taking some time to study in Costa Rica to obtain college credits.
The University of Michigan is starting a partnership that enables business students from a school in Costa Rica to earn a master of public administration degree at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.
The Ann Arbor school announced Monday that the dual-degree program starts in August and is designed for certain students at the INCAE Business School. The students will be admitted jointly to the Ford School and INCAE.
The students will first spend a year at INCAE, studying cases and developing tools for management and leadership.
After successfully completing INCAE’s program, they will move to the Ford School to take public policy courses augmented by a few courses from other programs.
INCAE was founded in 1964. It has campuses in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
