Daytime MBA | Class of 2021

 

Born and raised in Lima, Peru, I completed a degree in business administration before starting a career in marketing and other commercial roles. I worked in different industries such as retail, insurances, and CPG, going from product manager for credit card insurances to brand manager of some wine and spirits brands. I decided to go to business school because I wanted to get the tools and knowledge necessary to move forward with my marketing career, and I choose Fuqua not only because of its strengths there but also for its supportive community #TeamFuqua.

At Fuqua, I am involved in the MBA Association as VP of International Affairs, working together with the international club leaders to help our classmates navigate the MBA experience in the best way possible, especially through the COVID-19 context. I am also involved in the Latin American Student Association, the Rugby Club cabinet, and the Change Agents program, working closely with Male Allies and the Association of Women in Business to discuss gender equality with my peers.
