MBA Strategy Design
2014 – 2016 • San Francisco

In 2014 I moved from Rio de Janeiro to San Francisco, California, to pursue an MBA in Design Strategy at California College of the Arts. A program grounded in design research, human-centered design principles, and Lean Validation.

While in the program I had the opportunity to work with many local startups, including Bay Area Bike Sharing, and Launchpad Central. A company rooted in Steve Blank’s (co-founder) Lean Start-Up methods for rapid iteration and growth to bring products to the market.
