On campus life: The campus life at Fletcher is fascinating. If you spent a few minutes in the Hall of Flags at Fletcher you would probably hear half of the languages in the world. My fellow students have the most interesting stories combined with a great vision and intellectual curiosity to discuss the main political, economic, legal, and diplomatic issues that affect today’s world. The casual discussion you can have over a cup of coffee at Mugar Cáfe can be as interesting and rewarding as the classes and lectures you attend.

Why I chose Fletcher: Since I graduated from Law School, I have always considered myself as a non-standard lawyer with a certain interesting twist. I've dedicated my practice in law to mainly the financial sector, and after working a bit in this industry, I came to the conclusion that finance is an international affair on its own. I realized that markets and economies all across the world are naturally linked and closely connected. I decided that I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to be in contact with this international community. I first came in contact with Fletcher back in Mexico City when I met a recent graduate from the MALD program who explained to me the ideals of the school and the profile of the students who attended. As I continued my research for business programs, I decided that Fletcher was the perfect match for my goals in combining my legal background with business and finance. That was almost a year ago, and I still keep in touch with this alumnus.
