My choice

The idea was born 6 years ago, in my office as legal counsel in one of the most prestigious law firms in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “Changing my career?” I said to myself. “Why not?” I quit my job and the adventure began.

MIP was the right choice as it is located in the capital of fashion. It has a great multicultural environment, with students coming from more than 20 different nations every year. It also has a great network of companies that collaborate with the school, including companies in the luxury field, in which I was particularly interested.


Main takeaways from the MBA

  • I managed to change my career and make my dream come true. Nonstop from law to fashion industry!
  • I made unique friends.
  • I lived in my adored Italy and I got inspired by Milan, the capital of fashion.

Who I am

Argentinian by birth, Italian by choice. I am an unconventional professional with a solid background in consultancy and international experience in business development for the luxury sector.

After a successful experience in Jackie Smith (a leading player of the luxury handbags segment), I have been appointed as Head of Fashion at mercadolibre.com, the leading ecommerce company in Latin America (#11 in the world).

Allow me give you a simple tip: don’t be afraid of pursuing your dreams. Take risks, life is one-shot opportunity, and no matter how it goes you will never regret to have given it a try.
