I was born in Santiago, Chile. After graduating with an industrial engineer degree, I worked for 4 years as an Investment Banker for LarrainVial, the largest financial institution in Chile. My job focused in Capital Markets and M&A for small and mid-size companies within Latin America. Then, I decided to come to business school to prepare myself for future challenges as a senior manager.
Fuqua was the perfect fit: a global and team-oriented program, collaborative environment, flexible curriculum and family friendly. During my first-year at Fuqua, I realized that I also wanted to use my business experience to help the development of emerging markets. Gratefully, I was accepted to pursue a joint degree MBA/MPP.
Beyond academic and professional activities, I like to spend my free time running, golfing, fly fishing, and preparing Chilean barbecues. North Carolina is the perfect place for outdoor activities!
Summer Internship: AMIP Leadership Program at The Tony Elumelu Foundation supporting local entrepreneurs in Maputo, Mozambique (read more about it). The CASE Summer Internship Fund enabled me to learn about the rewards and challenges of social sector management without making a significant financial sacrifice.
Fuqua Activities: Cabinet member of the Latin American Student Association (LASA), Admissions Fellow, and I helped Professor John Graham as Research Assistant for the CFO Survey, and represented Chile in the first version of Fuqua Discovers. I’m also an active member of the Net Impact, Finance, and Golf Clubs.
