The INCAE Business School's Center for Women's Leadership (CWL) in Nicaragua is seeking bilingual interns (undergraduate and graduate students) to work on one of the following four projects related to female empowerment in Latin America. INCAE’s CWL was founded in 2010 to promote gender diversity in leadership in Latin America.
1). Gender differences in values, cheating behavior and risk taking in a Cross Cultural MBA sample
Brief Study Description: MBA students often pursue careers in private and public sector leadership. Are female MBAs less “corrupt” than male MBA’s in Latin America? If so, this would lend evidence to the hypothesis that increasing levels of women in top organizational leadership would reduce corruption.
Job requirements: Ability to administer semi-structured interviews in both English and Spanish, collect questionnaire and laboratory data, work with excel and conduct internet research
2). Gender Differences in Career Ambition, Confidence and Self-Efficacy
Brief Study Description: The purpose of this study is to assess gender differences in ambition and confidence at the level of primary, secondary and tertiary education students. Do gender differences exist and if so, at what age do they emerge and to what degree? Results have strong implications for both a) understanding factors relevant to lack of gender diversity in leadership positions and b) determining when education/intervention programs may be necessary.
Job Requirements: Ability to administer semi-structured interviews in both English and Spanish, collect questionnaire and laboratory data, work with excel and conduct internet research
3). The Effect of Alternative Education Strategies on Levels of Ambition among High School Students
Brief study description: The purpose of this study is to determine whether short term leadership/career training of high school (secondary education) girls leads to increases in reported career ambition. Students will be paired with local public high schools that are willing to partner with INCAE in this project.
Job Requirements: Strong interest in teaching and some demonstrated ability to do so. Ability to administer semi-structured interviews in both English and Spanish, collect questionnaire and laboratory data, work with excel and conduct internet research.
4). Social Cultural, Cognitive and Individual Factors Related to Early Fertility in Nicaragua
Some background in psychology required

*NEW!: INCAE Professor Niels Ketelhohn, expert on regional competativeness and previous Harvard Univeristy graduate, is looking for interns related to the following:
While health systems in Latin America confront severe constraints to investment in further capacity, regional population grows and grows older. Interns working with me will contribute to the understanding of demographic trends that will affect demand for hospital services in Central and South America. Interns will also help explore different strategies that hospitals and other institutions are implementing to cope with increase need to deliver health services more efficiently.
