Cristiane Tsuboi, International MBA at FIA, competes for AMBA’s Student of the Year award.
Receiving applications from over 180 business schools accredited by AMBA worldwide, the 2013 Student of the Year award approaches its final decision by displaying a Brazilian student within this year’s top 5 finalists.
Cristiane Truboi, International MBA student at FIA Business School, regarded as one of the best 100 MBAs in the world according to London’s Financial Times Rank, strove for excellence in a program taught entirely in English and amounting up to 13 nationalities represented in the group. According to Prof. Dr. James Wright, coordinator of FIA’s International Executive MBA, International MBA and Americas MBA, this achievement owes to a global effort developed throughout the course. “This result highlights the great potential and transforming capacity in a young Brazilian executive’s career in deciding to undertake a global-standard, internationally accredited MBA offered in Brazil, by bringing together international students, themes, cases and experiences”.
Ms. Tsuboi completed her MBA tied for first place in her group with two other students: Marcin Wozniak from Poland and Tarun Kalra from India. Her history of social work and professional experience, however, weighed heavily on her behalf. After all, before joining FIA’s International MBA, Cristiane, an medical doctor graduated from USP, collaborated alongside the Brazilian Navy in an expedition to the Amazon, where she supplied medical assistance to riverside communities in need, many times at great distances where medical assistance was unheard of.
Experienced in Labor Health, she developed in her Final Paper an enhanced system of Workplace accident management indicators that greatly reduced costs for the company envisioned by the project.
As a finalist of the Student of the Year award, who’s recipient will be announced at the annual AMBA meeting scheduled for November 6 in London, UK, Cristiane has already been invited to serve for a year as “MBA Ambassador” for AMBA.
