The Organization of American States (OAS, or OEA as it is known in French, Spanish and Portuguese) is the world’s oldest regional organization. Today, the OAS brings together 35 independent states of the Americas and constitutes the main political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the Hemisphere. In addition, it has granted permanent observer status to 67 states, as well as to the European Union (EU). For more detailed information on the OAS, please see the organization’s web site here.
This year marks the third year of collaboration between OAS and IE Business School, and together we are helping top talent from the Americas to get an advanced degree from one of the world’s leading institutions of higher learning. Later, post-training, these high potential graduates return to the Americas to lead change in one of the OAS’ member countries. To ease the financial aspect of obtaining a degree from a top international school, IE and OAS sponsor several scholarships on an annual basis.
