Andres WhitechurchUndergraduate school/major: I attended Babson College and majored in business management.

Concentrations: Analytic finance and accounting.

Career plans: I intend to continue to work with Latin American financial markets.

Why did you choose to attend Chicago Booth? I chose Booth for a number of reasons; to gain a better understanding of fundamental business principles including financial accounting, economics, and statistics; to learn and practice effective crosscultural communication skills, and to gain further international capital markets experience. Today, I can say with certainty that Booth is the right place for me. My interaction with professors, students, and staff has far exceeded expectations. I am continually challenged to improve and gain for new perspectives.

Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Humbling, enriching, and inspiring.

What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? Ping Tom Memorial Park, located on the south bank of the Chicago River, is a hidden gem! It has a beautiful pagoda style pavilion. It’s a great place to unwind and relax.

Ask me about...: Working with Latin American markets in the USA, moving to the USA from Latin America, starting business school with a spouse, and about Latin restaurants in Chicago, New York, and Miami.
