Brenda Raez graduated from her Hult MBA in 2018 and is now Senior Associate at PwC. We asked her to tell us more about her practical MBA experience.

What did you find most valuable about the challenge learning approach?

Understanding myself and my own strengths and weaknesses in relation to the Hult DNA was groundbreaking for me. Knowing what to work on and what to keep doing is incredibly valuable. Hult was the place that showed me that there’s no limit to what you can achieve.

How has this helped you professionally?

It opened doors for me even while I was still at Hult. I moved from Peru to Dubai for the MBA and had a job offer with PwC there even before I’d finished the program.

What were your key learnings?

Being humble, not always insisting your own viewpoint is the right one, and giving space to others are essential, both in the business environment and also in life. It was my first time working with people from different cultures. In the beginning it was overwhelming, but soon you realize there’s more than one way to do things, and you can learn so much from your classmates. Having a growth mindset is what will trigger the capabilities within yourself to be able to achieve whatever you want in life.
