Economics and Strategy & Operations
PricewaterhouseCoopers was my first post-degree employer. It is the biggest of the Big4 and one of the most reputed consultancy and auditing companies in Portugal. I was invited to join the Advisory department (Consultancy), more specifically, the recently created Economics Team - an ambitious project regarding Competition and Regulatory Economics and Economic Impact Studies - while I was still finishing my degree. The team consisted of 3 people of which I was the only one who would dedicate fully to those projects until I gradually began my parallel participation in the Strategy & Operations Team. - in which I was fully incorporated. Working at PricewaterhouseCoopers was a good personal management challenge - making you test your productivity and focus - which I believe drove me to learn, by myself, so many different things about various markets and business models. The experience of working in strategic advisory was also a very beneficial towards my own opening to new ideas and was a very positive exercise for my creativity and it's incorporation in interesting and innovative business solutions.
