Student Spotlight:

Esther Baldo Andres"I am currently a Marketing Strategy Professional Intern at The Walt Disney Company. More specifically, I work in Disney Vacation Club under Disney Parks and Resorts. My main projects are being Project Manager for the Domestic Hispanic Campaign which has as an objective to expand our customer base across this market and Lead Generation strategic analysis.

Being a TABSA student has been extremely helpful as I have a broader and more international perspective of marketing and business in general. I am not only used to working with international teams, but I enjoy and appreciate diversity, something very important if your goal is to work for a multinational company.

My internship with Disney has helped me with my critical thinking skills, being able to strategically think about business decisions, analyze alternatives and understand their impact. Finally, what’s my favorite things of being a Disney intern? Being surrounded by such an intelligent and motivated team! As well as free park admission, of course, can you think of a better perk?"
