Mission

IAE’s mission is to contribute to the knowledge development and personal  growth of business men and women, strengthening their managerial skills as well as the human virtues required for management

Organizational Purpose

IAE was created and continues to operate with the two-fold purpose of:

  • Articulating and driving an essential positive change in business organizations’ culture, values and virtues. First and foremost, this involves a transformation in the management styles and practices of executives taking on leadership roles in organizations. 
  • Disseminating these values and virtues to society at large via companies. The starting point is the transcendent Christian view of human beings, which merges individual and social realms.

To pursue this goal, IAE focuses on:

  • Training organizational leaders on capabilities and virtues associated with the following dimensions:
    • Professional career;
    • Personal and family life;
    • Citizenship and social engagement.
  • Collaborating primarily with business companies, public agencies and civil society organizations to support their leaders’ training, so that they can serve society increasingly better. 
  • Advancing knowledge (R&D) on organizational management, especially for business companies.
