Define your experience in MCXI in one word.

In what ways do you think program has changed your life professionally and personally?
It was the perfect pivot I needed to kickstart a new focus in my career. Personally, I met some great friends and professionals.

What was your favorite memory from your experience?
There were plenty, but the speech our Director Andrew gave after our final presentation will always stay close to my heart.

Why did you choose to study this program at IE?
I was actually nudged into studying this. I had initially applied to do the MIM, but after my interview I was told there were bigger and better things for me if I was ready. I loved that it was evident they took the time to study my profile before suggesting the change. And they sold it quite well.

What were some of the main challenges that you encountered on your way? How did your master program and IE help you through these challenges?
This program is naturally quite broad, but intense in a short amount of time. It was sometimes frustrating to feel you could not possibly take in all the information that was coming your way and condense it in packets so you could contextualize it. But the mentoring from professors always made it click somehow.

What is networking like in MCXI?
In my experience, the best networking came through our professors. Amazing professionals that came from so many different fields. And most of them made it a point to bring other colleagues to speak to us to provide different points of view, and ideas.
