Challenge

 

Challenge

 
Despite its successful programs, ISEADE had an obsolete way of teaching and maintained high costs of per diem in international professors who were invited to teach classes and conferences. The educational center wanted to improve the innovation of its technological infrastructure to teach graduate students and attract a greater number of aspiring students to postgraduate and graduate degrees, thus allowing it to compete with universities that offer online master's degrees.

Additionally, the infrastructure did not allow it to expand its schedule of classes in more flexible schedules that gave students the way to fulfill their professional commitments and at the same time successfully complete their master's studies.
