    I am fortunate to have received an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment at the University of Miami. The support of the professors and career development staff helped me expand my perspectives, and introduced me to a wide range of inspiring people. Most important, UM supported my passion to pursue entrepreneurial projects in global public health. MAIA prepared me to be successful in my endeavors.

    What first attracted me to enroll in MAIA was the high caliber of professors the program has to offer. I landed my first internship at SouthCom because of my MAIA professors and it was a great fit for me.

    Graduating from MAIA was the catalyst I needed to move from higher education into the change management & technology consulting space. I love that I get to support large, international projects for organizations such as the UN, Gates Foundation, DoD., etc. - opportunities I would have never been afforded if I hadn’t graduated from MAIA.
