Big Life Wins:
Worked for 9 months in a project in the energy industry in Argentina, where I gained a lot of exposure with the company’s executives. After that, came back to Colombia and completely shifted my focus, since I’ve been working exclusively in projects for top-10 local and regional insurance companies, where I’ve been leading teams of 4-6.
Post MBA Goal:
I want to use an MBA to improve my team-management skills and strategic vision, in order to transition into a more strategy-focused consulting firm. An MBA would be a great opportunity to learn from classmates and professors how companies have dealt with problems in the past, which is something that would be very helpful for consulting projects. In the long-term, I hope to become a local partner (in Colombia) for one of the top consulting firms and help local companies grow.
