After working for a few years in Mexico City at Deutsche Bank and ING as a derivatives trader, Rodrigo joined the Berkeley MFE class of 2009 to deepen his skillset and gain a deeper understanding of the financial models underpinning the markets. During the program, he was placed in an internship with the Latin America Group for Barclays Global Investors in San Francisco and post-program, he accepted a full-time position with BGI (which was later acquired by BlackRock).
The Berkeley MFE program didn't only help Rodrigo land his first position. In 2010, he accepted a position as Vice President at BNP Paribas in New York City, where he now holds a Director position in Fixed Income Trading.
"The Berkeley MFE exceeded my expectations, not only for its full placement of students in internships but also for its commitment to full-time job placement and personal involvement with each and every one of the students. The Berkeley MFE is the best investment I have made so far." -- Rodrigo Nunez Lagos, MFE class of 2009
