Why did you choose this program? I chose this program because of the global component and the practical application throughout the subjects. I did a very theoretical course for undergraduate and was looking for an interesting business perspective, different than most business graduate courses.
Also, the program taking place across three continents in such a short period of time allows us to gain interesting and rewarding insight into business across the globe.
What do you enjoy about the program so far? I have enjoyed a very diverse and friendly group of people, which has already led to learning across cultures. Again, I really enjoy how applied the classes are, which allows for a hands-on approach to identifying and solving problems. People are incredibly open-minded.
What has surprised you about the program so far? Participation is really encouraged, which is a different style of teaching than I’m used to. It really allows you to expand knowledge on topics that otherwise you might not be as involved in.
Fun facts: My favorite (and best!) sport is skiing, and I come from a country that barely has any snow. I attended boarding school, and it was the best experience of my life. I love football (the European kind, which is played with the feet). Did I mention Portugal won Euro 2016?!
Hobbies: Debating (I’m a Model UN nerd), reading, politics, and a good pint (or two) in the pub. I have a huge water sports bucket list, but ever since I attempted water skiing, that’s on hold. I also enjoy writing (mainly poetry or poetic prose) and watching the “Great British Bake-Off” (on the BBC; check it out) while attempting some of the baking when I get hungry.
