After finishing my Bachelor degree in Uruguay I worked for several companies in which I learned different skills. I knew that this valuable experience that I was acquiring would be boosted by doing an MBA because I would acquire new skills and gain a better understanding of business.
I decided to come to study to at the NUCB Business School because the university is one of the top business schools in Japan and the region. I loved the idea of studying in Japan and particularly in Nagoya because of its unique culture and economic development. The experience has been enjoyable and invaluable to my personal and professional development.
The MBA program has provided to me new insights about the different approaches to business across all over the world because of the diversity of backgrounds/nationalities in the classroom, allowing me to think out of the box to solve future challenges.
