Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: I believe that my biggest accomplishment so far was the negotiation and deployment of partnerships between Experian and main telecom operators in Brazil for the reselling of credit reports through mobile devices, increasing the incomes of the consumer services unit by 40% in its third year of operation.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? Applying to the right B-School is extremely important. The advice I’d give to future applicants is to think deeply about what they want to do after the MBA. Then, they should study employment reports of each school to understand which one would better for them based in their professional and personal goals. For example, if your dream is working in a tech company, then it would be great studying in the Bay Area.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? After my MBA, I want to work in a B2C company. Kelley has one of the best marketing programs in the United States and also a Consumer Marketing Academy that help us to connect with the main companies of the consumer world.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? My dream job would be in a B2C company where I could develop products, sales channels and partnerships, especially in on-line markets.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? I’d like they say that I’m a supportive and friendly person and that they would like to work with me.
