Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt because it is internationally recognized. In my home country, Colombia, it was one of the most prestigious universities, and I was looking for the best education. My degree has given me the opportunity to work on the topics I enjoy the most, with employees and companies that have given me the opportunity to grow professionally and as a person. More importantly, it has given me the opportunity to participate in projects, policies, and strategies that are truly contributing to more sustainable, equitable development in the LAC region.
What was the best part of your experience? The best part was living in DC so we could take advantage of the policy environment for the U.S. and the world.
Undergraduate university, degree, and major: Icesi University, BA in Economics
