Our educational focus enables meaningful and practical learning, in which students build knowledge through their own reflection, their own experience, and genuine cooperation with others.

All the learning activities on the course were designed with these principles as a basis. We will guide you through a series of videos and practical assignments that will allow you to reflect on and understand the economic, social, and environmental challenges and opportunities that have allowed multilatinas to build their leadership in and from the Latin American region.

This course is for those who want to expand their knowledge about Latin American companies’ businesses. In particular, it is designed for those who want to understand how international success stories are built in the region and how many challenges have turned into opportunities for the business sector. This course does not require any previous knowledge and therefore it is especially relevant for people in academic training, who want to complement their studies or to have a space for reflection and interaction with others who are interested and experienced in this field. Finally, this course can be useful for professors in the field of international business and strategy, who want to gain in-depth knowledge about multilatinas and companies in Latin America.

At the end of this course, you will understand thoroughly the most important concepts regarding internationalization topics. You will understand the opportunities offered by the Latin American context that has forced multilatinas to become resilient, to create new value propositions in their activities, and often to rethink the role they play in the territories where they operate. In the final assignment, you will record a video in which you will make a summary of the advantages of doing business in the Latin American region, based on what you have reflected on and learned. This way you will demonstrate your capacity of giving a precise, informed and revealing opinion about the topic.

The course is designed to last 4 weeks with a workload of 6-7 hours per week, but you can take as long as you need. All the information about your participation and progress will always be available and updated on Coursera. You can pick up in the activities you left off. For example, you can watch a video as many times as you want, pause it to take notes or put it off while you consult some of the additional bibliography that we provide you with. Finally, this course is part of the specialization Doing Business in Latin America, created by Universidad de los Andes, Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey, and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. We invite you to take the other two courses if you have not yet taken them.
