Mario Martinez Hometown: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Previous Degree: "Ingeniero Industrial" (B.E. in Industrial Engineering equivalent), Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

About Me: "I grew up and went to college in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; a bustling, loud, and very heterogeneous city. It was a very pleasant surprise that I could quickly feel at home in a small and quiet town like Hanover. I'm sure my outgoing personality must have helped."

Why I Chose the M.E.M.: "In my case, I feel that this degree will help me accomplish what I want faster. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize that being an engineer and holding your own when talking business is potentially very valuable. Thayer really encourages you to be sociable and has an excellent reputation; those things definitely had an impact on my decision."
