Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose a business school. However, the educational experience you will have is what is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Today, we focus on Lourdes S. Casanova from the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University.
Now a senior lecturer at Cornell Johnson, Lourdes S. Casanova joined the school in 2012 after a lengthy international career. Casanova taught at INSEAD in France for nearly 25 years and served as a visiting professor at such schools as ESADE, the University of Oxford, and the University of Zurich. At Johnson, she is also the director of the school’s Emerging Markets Institute.
Casanova teaches such courses as “Leaders in Emerging Markets,” which brings executives from companies in emerging markets to speak on campus, and “Experience in International Management,” which combines classroom sessions with international trips where students meet with local companies, government officials, and other aspiring MBAs. She has been chosen as one of the most influential Ibero-American women by Esglobal three times, most recently in 2017.
