Tiago Martins Leite

Creativity at the centre.

Tiago comes from a creative background, more specifically, from architecture. He sees himself as a passionate person. A naturally creative strategic planner, who strives to have a global and thorough view of new and innovative projects, Tiago believes he has a saying in how a company can make the most of their investments and reach further.

Throughout his career, he has had the chance to touch different parts of a business, from executing his concepts to dabbling in management, branding and marketing. He has spent much of his time at his family’s company, and that has been both a source of pride and a challenge. This has helped Tiago to develop his communication and emotional intelligence skills, which has evidenced itself within the MBA scope, as he was elected class representative.

The Magellan MBA consolidated his knowledge and skills and certainly will open doors to new possibilities. Strategic planning has always been and will continue to be a strong interest for Tiago, in which he hopes to dig deeper.
