Laura Aparicio

The MBA program at the University of Akron has allowed me to gain an understanding of the business environment in the United States. Through my program, I have had the chance to get to know about a variety of topics within American business context, such as the dynamic of financial markets, the rigid and complete legal environment which rules business, the winning professional marketing practices and the American way to manage people. Furthermore, besides my academic program, my professional development is being enriched by the opportunity to improve my English expression skills and also by the occasion to learn about professional performance values in the United States, such as efficiency, integrity, and balance between work and personal life.

Finally, my everyday learning has been leveraged by the opportunity to share experiences with students from all parts of the world. This has represented a unique way to learn from people with different backgrounds, different cultures and different perspectives about life.
