‘The last 20 years of my career have been very focused on product development/redesign and strategic growth’ she says. ‘As the Associate Dean for the EMBA at FDC, I see these as my greatest strengths. We have been able to make relevant changes in our programme and are looking into other ways to continue to grow and innovate.’

Carla completed her engineering degree at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, in Brazil, and began her career at Arthur Andersen. From there, she moved to the US to become a financial analyst at Motorola and also completed an MBA at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
