The Latin American Research Consortium was created by the A.B. Freeman School of Business’s Goldring Institute of International Business as a consortium for research on financial markets and business institutions in Latin America with the purpose of promoting research on business institutions in this part of the world. The founding members of this consortium are: Universidad de los Andes, Bogota, Colombia; Universidad de Belgrano, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile; IESA, Caracas, Venezuela; INCAE, Costa Rica; and ITESM, Monterrey, Mexico. Recently, Fundação Getulio Vargas, São Paulo, Brazil; ESPOL, Guayaquil, Ecuador; and Universidad Católica Boliviana have been added to the consortium. The initial project of the consortium is to develop a database on Latin America stock markets for the countries represented. These data will provide a resource for the Ph.D. students in the ITESM and Universidad de los Andes program and other scholars who have an interest in studying the financial markets of this part of the world. The scope of the consortium has expanded to include research on human resource management and management strategy.
