◈ Studied Master in Business Administration
◈ At De La Salle University Dasmariñas
◈ Graduated 2009

list bulletAbout my college education: I love studying. That's why I never stop on learning new things. The way we discuss different topics in the graduate school gave me more confidence in the real world. You have to read and study hard to be able to survive in graduate school. Everyone is a professional, from different fields which makes discussion more interesting as ideas come from diverse points of view. It was quite a challenge for me because I was working while I was enrolled. But it was fun to be back in school.

list bulletMy current job: I am a travel blogger and also helps with our family business.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: The learning I acquired from graduate school made me handle my work more efficiently. I learned how Human Resource works, as well as Marketing and Finance, which also helped me in managing our own business.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I have a job when I graduated.

list bulletDo I recommend studying MBA: Yes. Getting a Master's diploma will give you an edge if you want to climb the managerial ladder.
