Blog > MBA Student Interview with Abraham G Melgar
Our MBA student Abraham G Melgar took some time to answer a couple of questions regarding his MBA experience at SSBM Geneva. He highlighted the Financial Management course as the most beneficial aspect of the MBA program.


What was the most beneficial aspect of the program?

All the programs at SSBM have been wonderful and the teachers were extremely helpful. In my specific case, however, the course that helped me pay for the entire MBA degree and set the the foundation for my financial well-being in life is the finance course at SSBM. I learned how to understand the language of stocks and corporations and in doing so I became a long term value investor.

What is the most valuable aspect of the program that will help you in your career advancement?

The most. valuable aspect of the program is that you learn to understand stocks in a holistic way and by doing this you can discern what stocks are good or bad for you. This simple fundamental understanding of dealing with equity risk has an exponential effect because it allows you to invest in stocks that are multi baggers or stocks that will give you consistent compound income. Einstein once said that compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. 

“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it … he who doesn’t … pays it.”

How was your overall experience at SSBM Geneva?

Great, teachers are responsive and respectful and so far I have used the knowledge I have gained in all my courses.
