While I was studying engineering I saw the need to expand my management training so I chose to pursue the Master’s Degree in Industrial Business Management. The training was ideal and while I was finishing my Master's Thesis in the USA, Mercedes-Benz offered me a position in Quality/Purchasing, a position where I could to practice everything I learned in the programme.
