Introducing Rio de Janeiro’s Chairman

My name is Gabriel Melo, I am currently the chairman of IFSA Rio de Janeiro and a last year student of Engineering at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, considered one of the best engineering universities of Latin America.

Taking part in an exchange programme at the Technical University of Darmstadt, in Germany, gave me the opportunity to attend to classes different from the traditional engineering ones, such as economics and corporate finance. It was a great opportunity that sparked my passion for finance and made me seek for more knowledge in this area.

Previously as a member and now as the president of the Finance Society of my university, I am delighted to be the head of the Global Report project. An international project that profits of this rich connection with students from all over the world. All brought together by the biggest student finance association worldwide, the IFSA, a group of which I am proud to be part of.
