About Me

I'm looking for a position with an international company in order to bring my strengths, and newly acquired (MBA obtained December 2015) knowledge to launch a career with a global player.

I relocated to Munich and attended (April-June 2015) a 3 month intensive "Deutsch als Fremdsprache" course for which I obtained a B1 certification, B2 "Pruefung" to be passed.

For the MBA Final Management Project, I analyzed through Michael PORTER Competitive Advantage framework whether Strategic Alliances versus M&A in the microelectronics sector is the best way to foster technological innovation for OEM companies.

While coordinating international research and scientific projects, I developed Program Management and Communications skills ie built platforms to enable communication of Best Practices. I've successfully lead projects by initiating & implementing quality, performance + cost management procedures and by tracking financials KPI's, like ROI.
