About me

Maya Helbaoui, from Lebanon, works in the marketing and communications field. Maya had studied pharmacy and earned a doctorate degree. Her work had always been centered on health and communications, so doing the IE International MBA immersed her in the business side. Her job at Roche is designing prevention campaigns against conditions like hepatitis C, arthritis and cancer in women. Maya is young and restless, which is clear when she speaks about her successful campaigns towards helping women everywhere.

“Even in the corporate world, if you have an entrepreneurial way of thinking you’ll do a great job. It helps you a great deal because you always bring new ideas to the table.”
