"Coming to TBS has been a very constructive and positive process in my life, not only professionally but personally. The M2C program combines everything I wanted to specialize in my career. It focuses not only in marketing, but also in communications, which, I think, gives more skills to the future alumni. It differentiates us from other marketers in the field, and gives us a complete comprehension of the industry. The professors train you to help you deploy your skills, give advice to explore your potential and provide guidance to develop you professional plans."
