"I am grateful to the M.S. in international marketing program for giving me the essential tools needed for my professional life. The program taught me how to think as a marketer and how to interpret the global business arena. During my studies, I was able to research and develop a business plan to bring my family's Colavita Olive Oil to Brazil. Our entrance into Brazil proved to be one of our greatest strategic moves. After returning to Italy with my degree in hand, my sisters and I formed a successful new business selling artisanal pasta worldwide."
