Welcome to Espol, the best public university in Ecuador. We are pleased to be hosts, together with Espae, Espol’s business school and receive you in the warm city of Guayaquil for the 57th edition of the CLADEA Annual Congress.
The current conditions allow us to offer you a hybrid event and gradually return to face-to-face attendance, which is necessary to establish greater fraternal ties with representatives of the CLADEA member institutions, as well as with academics and universities in the region. For this, Espol offers you a campus of 700 hectares, of which 320 belong to the La Prosperina Protected Forest, which will make this event unforgettable.
The pandemic and the changes of the 4.0 revolution have transformed the social reality and the perception we had about work and business, but also about the capacities of the human being to overcome great difficulties.
From the Academy we have a unique opportunity to rethink and dream of a different reality, taking advantage of the privileged meeting and brotherhood space that is CLADEA, which year after year brings together hundreds of professionals from all over the world. New challenges await us, such as the future of online education and business schools, the challenges of sustainability, telecommuting and virtual leadership, among many others.
