Latin America remains a healthy economic region despite ongoing market turmoil in the U.S. It has an appetite for people who can lead by example, influence a diverse group of customers and colleagues, and execute strategy, according to Ross alumni working in the area. Graduates making an impact in Latin America shared their experiences with Ross MBAs at the second annual Hispanic and Latino Business Students Association Conference in November. The alumni - along with other business heavyweights in the region - said years of economic growth, debt reduction, export growth, stability in government, and economic policy set the stage for resilience in Latin America despite the 2008 meltdown of the U.S. financial system.
