With the Executive MBA program, she wants to improve her leadership and innovation skills, expand her technical knowledge, and collaborate with international partners in an interdisciplinary environment.

ā€œI am an active learner who seeks to acquire new knowledge with each work and academic experience. That being said, when I read about the E-MBA in Space Architecture, I was very excited to apply for a degree that is compatible with my professional career and is aligned with my future goals in the Space community. This degree would be of paramount importance as a professional young woman to obtain further capabilities and qualifications to contribute to an even more ambitious and efficient space agenda while learning from true experts. Moreover, the thing that excites me the most is the fact that I will be able to improve my leadership and innovation skills, and strengthen technical knowledge while interacting with international partners in an interdisciplinary environment.ā€
