Joao Fernandez

I have always felt welcome in places that value community and teamwork. I first developed these values by playing water polo for more than ten years. We had a robust community and a sense of developing each other that I still carry into my life. Later, after earning my Bachelor's in Economics, I pursued a career in strategy consulting. The management consulting landscape was the place that I could combine my analytical side and a strong teamwork emphasis. After achieving a senior consultant position, I realized that I could further develop my leadership skills in a MBA program in the US. Ross was an easy choice for me because of the emphasis on community and leadership. Also, the Ross brand and alumni network will provide an edge in pursuing any career. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk about my journey, pursuing an MBA at a top school, Ross, or any other topic. Go Blue!
