My name is Monique Duarte and I am an alumni graduate of ESE. I spent 3 ½ years at the ESE London campus along with a semester at ESE Milan. My experience living in London, and studying at European School of Economics, was a wonderful experience filled with, creating new friendships from all over the world, learning culture, traveling Europe in all that it has to offer, and learning that the sky is not the limit to achieving all your dreams. Being able to travel to Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and many other places with a breeze, allowed me to experience life through a whole new lens. I am so grateful for my academic learning opportunity that ESE has given me, through it’s professors, that aim to push your thinking, and expand your knowledge in a whole new way.
I am an entrepreneur and a business woman of many trades. I am the Founder & CEO, of an Interior Decorating and Consulting business. Previous to starting my own enterprise of companies, I worked in Marketing & Advertising for over 10 years with several fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft & Yahoo! Managing multi-million dollar ad campaigns for clients like Verizon, Comcast, Prudential, Coke, Victoria’s Secret, and Doritos to name a few.
After completing my undergraduate at ESE, I was blessed to be able to jump right into Advertising & Marketing, which was always my dream. I always dreamed of planning a marketing campaign of the next big brand, and being the one to come up with big creative ideas to take a brand to the next level.
Being in small classroom settings surrounded students from all different backgrounds, and learning that it’s all about applying yourself to be great. I learned from a very special professor, that we all have within us everything we need to know. We just have to think, and use our minds, as it’s a powerful thing. Also, the diversity that European School of Economics offered me the opportunity to be exposed to, I truly believe has shaped who I am, with a wide open perspective on life, religion, culture, and the all of the opportunities that lie right before our eyes. We just have to go out and get it!
