UNICON Welcomes Three New Members and Celebrates Utah’s Full Membership

We are delighted to announce that we are welcoming three new associate members: IPADE Business School (Mexico City), ESCP Business School (Paris), and Trinity College Dublin (Dublin). Furthermore, we are excited to congratulate the University of Utah on their advancement from associate to full membership. These additions and milestones underscore the vibrant and dynamic nature of our consortium, furthering our mission to elevate executive education worldwide.

IPADE Business School


IPADE Business School is a private, not-for-profit, Mexican higher-education institution. It was created in 1967 as a freestanding business school and incorporated as the Universidad Panamericana’s business school in 1980.

IPADE was founded in Mexico City by a group of prominent business leaders aiming to promote a robust humanistic approach in business practice and professionalize managerial work enhanced by a global vision, social responsibility, and Christian values. Its program portfolio began with executive education programs (i.e., senior management programs), and shortly afterwards it was expanded to offer both degree and other non-degree programs for aspiring businesspeople and practicing senior managers across the country.

Since its foundation, IPADE has focused on senior management and relied on the case method as its main teaching and learning methodology in all its programs. IPADE’s program portfolio currently consists of a distinctive executive education offering—accounting for nearly 60% of the School’s operations with over 2,000 participants in open enrollment programs each year and more than 100 corporate clients—and two degree programs. IPADE has established campuses in the three major urban areas in Mexico (i.e., Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey), and to meet the needs of business communities in smaller cities, the School offers its executive education programs at temporary venues across the region.

“Joining UNICON will allow us to increase our network with top-notch business schools, enhance our commitment to excellence in executive education, and foster the exchange of knowledge. We are delighted to be part of this distinguished network, which will undoubtedly enrich our programs and extend our impact on the business community worldwide.”

Rodrigo de León, IPADE’s Executive Education Academic Director

ESCP Business School


ESCP Business School was founded in 1819. The School has chosen to teach responsible leadership, open to the world and based on European multiculturalism. Six campuses in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw are the stepping stones that allow students to experience this European approach to management. Several generations of entrepreneurs and managers were thus trained in the firm belief that the business world may feed society in a positive way. This conviction and ESCP’s values – excellence, singularity, creativity and plurality – daily guide our mission and build its pedagogical vision.

Every year, ESCP welcomes over 10,000 students and 6,000 managers from 135 different nationalities. Its strength lies in its many business training programmes, both general and specialised (Bachelor, Master, MBA, Executive MBA, PhD and Executive Education), all of which include a multi-campus experience.

Veronique Tran ESCP
“Joining UNICON is a fantastic opportunity for ESCP Business School, offering a platform for networking, knowledge sharing, and professional development. I am proud to be part of a global consortium that unites the world’s leading business schools, all dedicated to advancing executive education. I am confident that our UNICON membership will further enhance the excellence of our executive programmes and strengthen our position in the global landscape.”

Professor Veronique Tran, Executive Vice-President, Executive Education and Corporate Relations at ESCP Business School

Trinity College Dublin


Trinity College Dublin (TCD), the University of Dublin, founded in 1592, is Ireland’s highest-ranked university and a leading European research institution renowned for excellence in teaching, research, and innovation. Trinity Business School (TBS), a triple-crown accreditation School (AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS), is a top-ranked European business school.
