Pedro Costa

Making a difference in your life, whoever you are.

Pedro is the first to tell you he can come across as shy. However, that has allowed him to develop some great listening skills. Together with a thoughtful leadership, he hopes to truly make a difference in other people’s lives.
A great example of this approach can be found during his work in Swaziland, where had to talk to construction workers and ministers almost back to back. He paid attention to everyone’s needs, including his projects and so he was able to lift this project from the ground up.

As a civil engineer, Pedro has dealt mainly with infrastructures, but it is quite clear that he is also very comfortable dealing with people. The Magellan MBA is one more step towards becoming the type of manager that positively impacts the lives of his team members, as well as those who benefit from his work.
He values his relationships and works towards maintaining them, which is reflected in his everyday work.
