Luís Moreira da Silva

From Porto with pride, Luís wants to climb high in his career. Professionalism and flexibility are his key drivers.

This civil engineer can not hide his love for the city of Porto. Although work has taken Luís to Angola and Algeria, his return to the northern city of Portugal was important to rethink his career and start a family.

This MBA programme is not only an opportunity to acquire new competences and be up-to-date, but also a booster for his personal development. Now, he strongly believes that he is flexible enough to take increasingly challenging projects in different economic sectors. It is this will to improve and to go further that drives Luís, and so far it has paid off.

His experience allows him to adapt easily to new environments and challenges and he is very motivated to join ambitious organisations.
However, it is not only his career that ultimately fulfils Luís, but also his family. He believes his son is a major achievement in his life and he hopes to continue to grow a healthy, happy family.
