Special Alliances

The MGA has many partnerships and alliances, such as an alliance with the World Resources Institute, based in Washington, D.C., for the development of its New Ventures program. The goal of this program is to allow students, as part of their coursework, to act in a consulting role to small and medium enterprises in Colombia and the Andean region in the development of business plans for sustainable products, among others.

National Environmental Forum

The School participates in the National Environmental Forum (FNA by its Spanish initials), which is composed of eight national environmental organizations. MGA students have the opportunity to access FNA services and benefits.

The Forum aims to monitor public environmental policy and provide evidence for its advancement, fostering a structured dialogue between leaders from the economic, social, and environmental sectors on the major environmental issues and challenges that the country faces.

The FNA regularly develops forums, seminars and workshops, documents, and publications. The main policy areas of the FNA are: (i) national environmental policy; (ii) forests; (iii) water; (iv) the environment and armed conflict; (v) villages, forests and territories; and (vi) international environmental policy.

International Conferences

Prominent leaders in environmental issues and business from all over the world visit the University and the School of Management on a regular basis, offering students the opportunity to hear proposals and exchange views with professors and executives who have significant academic and professional experience in management and environmental issues.

Throughout the program, international conferences are organized around pressing issues such as climate change, corporate environmental responsibility, and best practices in conservation management.
