The Faculty

Juan Humberto Young

Mindfulness Based Strategic Awareness Training – MBSAT
Capstone Project
Positive Strategy, Risk and Finance

Professional Experience
From a MBA at the University of Chicago, a MSc in Risk Management at New York University-NYU, a MPA at Harvard University, a Doctoral degree from Case Western Reserve University to a Master in Applied Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and a Master’s in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy at Oxford University.

Integrating all of this knowledge has allowed me to create services that my clients find useful in their quest for wiser and enhanced ways of living their lives and managing their organizations. It also allowed me to design programs and courses such as the Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy (EXMPLS) and the Mindfulness-Based Strategic Awareness Training (MBSAT) that my students and clients find beneficial, and in many cases even life changing.

I started my career as a young auditor with one of my uncles who insisted that in order to be successful in the world of commerce, one needed to understand the numbers: accounting and finance. Soon I became CFO at an industrial company, and subsequently at an engineering firm. I took a year to work as financial expert with the agricultural division of the Organization of American States OAS, helping Caribbean small farmers’ organizations optimize their finances. Then I worked with KPMG for several years before moving to Switzerland where I started as Director of Planning of a large hospitality conglomerate. My last employed job was as member of senior management at UBS headquarters in Zurich where I organized a new department from scratch, the Asset Management and Rescheduling Corporate Finance for Emerging Markets. Under my management, this unit became the bank’s most lucrative unit at the time. Over the past few years I have successfully run my own professional practice in Zurich, advising companies and individuals, and at times invest in other firms and projects. One of these projects was a Swiss electro-engineering company. I was the company’s Chairman and a major shareholder until 2014 when my partner and I sold the firm to the employees in a management buy-out. UBS acted as the financial advisors and capital providers for this transaction.
