Associate Director, NBCUniversal
"The MBA has given me the professional and educational knowledge to back up business decisions, and reassurance on how business should be conducted."
Originally from Colombia, Laura Moreno came to the UK more than 14 years ago to learn English, before deciding to stay in London for her undergraduate degree in Business Administration; she has gone on to build a hugely successful career in the media industry, and is now Associate Director at NBCUniversal. After obtaining a First Class Honours for her BA, Laura joined the Comcast International Media Group initially as an office manager.
She climbed the career ladder very quickly, moving from an operational to a strategic business development role, but it was always at the back of her mind to do an MBA. In 2010 Comcast supported Laura's decision to take Westminster Business School's Executive MBA; she graduated from the course with distinction in 2012, and described the MBA as "a fantastic experience".
"I knew that doing an MBA would give me a different status at work, and professionally it put me on a different level," says Laura. Her areas of expertise range from business operations, to budgeting and forecasting, strategy and leadership, change management, and business improvement.
