Colombia is experiencing a historic moment with regard to the peace agreement and the new dynamics of the post-conflict. At the same time, the country is joining the digital transformation that the world is experiencing, generating new challenges in the formation of future leaders of the country. We are convinced that COIL-type courses can be a great tool to reduce inequality and create bridges between government, industry and academia, not only at a national level, but also internationally, thus learning the good practices of developed countries and sharing the needs of the new emerging economies. To respond to this need, we propose two types of COIL-based courses that seek to democratize learning in an innovative and meaningful way, also creating positive networks that promote the development of the global economy, rom respect for different cultures and learning the good practices that are born when we are united in diversity.
