“The most rewarding part of the programme is getting to learn from great lecturers who are not only high-profile researchers but in many cases also knowledgeable business people. ”
What work experience/internships did you have before beginning with Imperial College Business School?
I have six years of experience working in multiple countries including China, Mozambique, and Peru, tackling global sustainability health issues such as nutrition, sexual and reproductive health, and vector-borne diseases.
Why did you decide to study an MSc International Health Management at Imperial College Business School?
I felt that the MSc International Health Management would provide me with the theory behind a lot of the work I had already been doing in my field.
Which has been your favourite module so far and why?
Both the Health Economics and Contemporary Topics in Health Policy modules have been my favourites so far because the content of the lectures is very relevant to the issues that are relevant in healthcare at the moment (beyond COVID-19).
What has been the most rewarding part of the programme?
Being able to learn from great lecturers who are not only high-profile researchers but in many cases also knowledgeable business people.
How would you describe your cohort at Imperial?
I would describe my cohort as one of the most knowledgeable and diverse groups I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
Did you have a favourite professor/lecturer and why?
Dr Marisa Miraldo and Jeremy Fernando are my favourites because they both really do give 110% to try and engage the students and get us energised to learn. They go above and beyond what is required of them and are simply spectacular.
What clubs, societies or other activities have you been involved in at Imperial?
I am a member of the Latin America Business Club, the North America Business Club, and Financial Director of the Healthcare Business Club.
What are your future career goals?
In the future I would love to work in global health operations at an intergovernmental entity.
How did the services from Careers help in your professional development/securing employment?
I spoke to Andreia Ferreira from the Careers team who was absolutely amazing at giving student tips and tricks for us to maximise our potential when applying to roles.
When you’re not studying, what do you enjoy doing?
Exercising, reading, and spending time with friends,
If you had to move to London for the programme, where did you decide to live? What advice would you give to someone in a similar position?
I lived in Chelsea so that I could walk to the Business School. I would not necessarily recommend this as a 20-minute walk vs a 20-minute tube ride seems to be very similar and living farther away could potentially be cheaper. I would recommend all future students to do their own research and decide what their priorities are when choosing somewhere to live.
