Latin American Research Consortium

The Latin American Research Consortium was founded by Tulane University in 1995 with the purpose of promoting scholarly research on Latin American markets and business institutions. Its goal is to bring together scholars from around the world who are experts on Latin American business issues to share their research and knowledge related to these issues.

Schools and other institutions represented at the consortium meetings in the past have included ITESM-Monterrey, EGADE, INCAE, Universidad de los Andes, IESA, ITESM-Guadalajara, University of Chile, Universidad de Belgrano, Catolica de Bolivia, Catolica de Peru, ITAM, Instituto de Empresa (Spain), ICADE (Spain), Getulio Vargas, INSPER, Universidad Francisco Marroquin, ESPAE-ESPOL, Central Bank of Brazil, and UCLA, Tulane University, Texas Christian University, and the University of Illinois in the United States.

In 2007 the Deans' Workshop was initiated as part of the Consortium meeting to provide the deans of the top business schools in Latin America a forum to share their programs and initiatives in management education in the region.
