Manuel Sansigre (Spain)
M&A Associate at Three Ocean Partners, New York
Class of 2009
I graduated from the MIAF in 2009, after that I worked in a leading Spanish M&A boutique and now I am working in M&A in New York. Prior to IE, I was working in strategy and finance at IBM, but I believed the banking sector would provide a better fit for my profile. Changing sector is always a tough decision to make in your career path, I have been able to leverage the education and networking opportunities that IE offers.
Dennis Lin (Canada)
Class of 2014
With an undergraduate degree in music, I was an unlikely candidate to be in business not to mention in the highly specialized world of finance. Taking risks and working hard to get into the business world were understatements – I had to be more strategic in my approach and act with more conviction than others to make it. IE was an integral part in achieving my goal of becoming a truly international businessman and financier.
