"This experience gave me to have access to a totally different industry and working area from my background."
The Brazil International Consulting Lab was an amazing and enriching experience, culturally and professionally.
First, it allowed me to have a real international experience because I had the opportunity to work in S. Paulo, the largest city in Latin-American, in a company with business units all around the world and with a Brazilian team with very different cultural and working habits. For example, I worked in the S. Paulo office, the headquarters of the company, where I had to contact the current customer base of the company from different countries such as: Argentina, Paraguay, Egypt, South Africa, etc.
Second, this experience gave me to have access to a totally different industry and working area from my background, reporting directly to the VP of the department. For example, my background is engineering and I have been working in the telecom industry as an operations manager and this lab allowed me to test my consulting and marketing expertise in the construction & materials industry.
Thus, the international Brazil lab was key changing point of the Lisbon MBA experience.
Thank you, Lisbon MBA.
