Could you update us on your latest professional developments?

In the last 8 years, ING has kept me busy with very interesting HR initiatives, mainly in -but not limited to- the area of Development and Talent Management.  I have been lucky enough to experience, participate and contribute to many changes within my company – a fact that has kept me engaged and creative for all these years.

What made you choose ALBA for your graduate studies?

As an HR professional, I felt that further improving my business acumen would be very useful, so I considered ALBA as the only solution to conduct my MBA
