Mariana Zamudio Guajardo, Essex MBA student 2021-22, wears her mid-length dark hair down and smiles while wearing a grey suit jacket. She is standing outside the Essex Business School building and posing against a backdrop of one of the wooden structural features. She is smiling and looks very professional.
"Before my MBA I was working in International Relations and CSR with a focus on social innovation. My background helps me understand the relationship between how a company works, the impact it has on its surroundings and how companies could have other objectives besides profit, such as sustainability. This aligns perfectly with The Essex MBA. After graduating I want to continue to promote initiatives that have a beneficial impact on communities."
