This April, twenty-two executive master in finance students from INCAE Business School in Costa Rica participated in an inaugural international partner program through Darden’s Center for Global Initiatives. The week-long program, themed Financial Innovation: New Products and Financial Engineering, was led by a team of Darden finance faculty including Marc Lipson, Elena Loutskina and Yiorgos Allayannis. The cohort of executive students from all throughout Latin America spent the week taking classes on topics such as risk shifting, transition financing, mezzanine debt and fintech. See below for more pictures from the week!
