“After graduation I will be returning to the Boston Consulting Group as a Consultant in the New Jersey office. Lauder has helped me deepen my understanding of political and economic issues facing the world today. I am excited to bring my experiences to a truly global company where I hope to work with a variety of clients. I look forward to tackling new challenges, especially at a time when companies have the opportunity to redefine the future of their industries.”

“After graduating, I will be joining Didi Chuxing, a Chinese ridesharing company, working from its Mexico City office. As Didi aims to expand across Latin America, I will be in its Leadership Rotational program learning about international market expansion across numerous functions. I am looking forward to the role as it combines my passion for working across markets and leverages my Lauder experience in bridging diverse cultures. Moreover, this opportunity is very exciting as I hope to learn more about the Latin American region as well as gain a new perspective on technological innovation.”

“After graduation I’ll be joining EQT Partners, in their infrastructure investment fund. I got interested in the subject after meeting an energy company during the Latin America immersion program, and through my research at the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy on campus. During my internship at EQT last summer I got to research and present a thesis on the US trucking industry and complete a deal in just two short months. I’m looking forward to living in New York City again, after having spent some years in London, because it means I’ll be closer to my family and my classmates from Lauder. Given my company has offices all over the world, I’m sure I’ll be using my Lauder education shortly.”
