At Grupo Plenus, Marcelo is responsible for increasing his company's revenues by developing financial models. Inside the company, he concentrates on the education department, where he aims at transforming a for-profit university, which has recently been acquired, into an "actual university". His goal is to totally transform this institution, meeting the needs of mid to low income level students.
Marcelo praises the content of the courses and the MBI faculty, comprised of world-class professionals that also teach at prestigious universities around the world. He argues that he preferred the MBI over any other Master in Business Administration (MBA) program, because he feels that MBAs nowadays rather give history classes that concentrate on what is about to come.
