Why I Chose Fuqua
My two reasons are: 1) Team Fuqua, and 2) Passion for the energy industry.
Team Fuqua was the main driver in my business school decision. It was an easy choice after I was able to meet so many Fuquans while applying. People are deeply engaged with their communities and they are trying to achieve the best results and create a better world, not just a better business.
Second, our passion for the energy industry and the many resources available at Fuqua made it an even easier choice. I ended up enrolling for an MPP/MBA dual degree. I am concentrating in energy finance and energy & environmental policy to develop a broader skillset and explore other areas for my future.
Five Restaurants You Won't Want to Miss in Durham
- Bali-Hai – simple but great
- Bleu Olive – great Mediterranean
- Cook-Out – a classic for after Shooters
- La Vaquita – great tacos and a lovely spot
- Maggiano’s – I know, it’s a chain restaurant, but their Durham lasagna is fabulous
My Life Before Fuqua
As a lawyer from ITAM, an economics powerhouse in Mexico, I started my career in M&A and Project Finance. With the enactment of the Mexican Energy Reform in 2013, I specialized in the energy industry and moved to a role as Senior Associate in an Energy & Infrastructure consulting firm in Mexico City.
My Life After Fuqua
I plan to stay within the energy and infrastructure industries focusing on large-scale deployment of renewable energy and building a more sustainable infrastructure for the next generation. I will use my diverse skillset and the business acumen, plus my experience in regulatory affairs, to accelerate the shift to clean energy and the electrification of things.
