Prior to studying at Simon, Carlo Cabral received his undergraduate degree in management engineering with a minor in economics from the John Gokongwei School of Management in the Philippines. After college, Carlo worked as a trader at Security Bank Corporation and the United Coconut Planters Bank in Makati City.

Understanding that a successful career in global finance requires an advanced degree from a school with a worldwide reputation, Carlo looked to Simon. “Everyone aspires to be the best in finance,” he says. “But before you get to the top, you need to build a sturdy foundation. That is where Simon excels.” Carlo also appreciates the other opportunities his business education has offered for building personal and professional success. “Simon focuses in creating lasting relationships,” he says. “Many of the classes focused on teamwork and everyone was encouraged to join extracurricular activities to build their interpersonal skills.”  

According to Carlo, it was the School’s academic approach that distinguished it from the rest. “The faculty and staff are the top in their fields,” he notes. “The opportunity to be part of their classes was an important reason to get an MBA from Simon. The professors are available to students outside the classroom, which reinforces the more personal community that Simon cultivates.”

Carlo is keeping his eyes on the future and understands that achieving success means a healthy combination of education, energy, and effort. Eager to pursue a finance career in New York City, he knows his degree from Simon will set him apart. “While Simon offers the best education from the best professors, it also teaches the right attitude in approaching challenges and opportunities,” he says. “I believe that is the combination companies are looking for when they consider who to hire.”

“Finance is a changing landscape. Simon is giving me exactly the MBA program I need to learn how to adapt to those changes. With its focus on economics and analysis, Simon doesn't teach you what to think, it teaches you how to think.”
