Why did you choose an online format like Quantic? It is important for me to be flexible with where I work. Quantic offers this flexibility in a truly user-friendly format.

Apart from your classmates, what was the key element of Quantic’s MBA program that led you to choose this business school, and why was it so important to you? Quantic shares my ethics on the accessibility of continuing education. They have designed this comprehensive, high-quality program in such a way that they can offer it at such a price that the degree will more than offset the cost of the job market. It also included an exclusive way to enter this market.

Quantic is very competitive and only around 10% of students who apply to the MBA program are admitted. What advice would you give to someone who intends to apply to Quantic to increase their chances of being accepted? Don’t be afraid to point out why you are interesting and what interests you. Be unabashedly passionate about the things you believe in, which in my opinion is a trait that organically reveals your work ethic.

What achievement are you most proud of in your professional career? I am proud of my advancement in my current company, coming from established Fortune 500 companies and pivoting to my new role as a second employee in the US at a start-up – it was a huge culture shock from the best. way. Since then, I have been able to work with almost every team and help create processes that continually improve the way we operate.

What is your ultimate long-term professional goal and how has your MBA studies helped you progress in this field? Ultimately, I want to continue working in roles with very diverse projects and teams that allow me to connect and learn from teams that are not necessarily in my specialty. The MBA program is another stepping stone to becoming a more complete leader with a holistic business perspective.
