Jorge Luis Hidalgo

My name is Jorge Luis Hidalgo. After finishing my MBA in Barcelona, I was accepted onto a exchange programme at the University of Edinburgh. Besides living in a wonderful city – it was in fact my favourite city that I visited in Europe – I also had the opportunity to study in a competitive and prestigious environment.

During the programme I studied MBA subjects and also subjects from the world’s first Masters in Carbon Management. I have fond memories of the high quality of my professors, who enriched my experience. In my classes, I had the opportunity to meet Kevin Houston, who is the Co-Founder of the company Carbon Masters. I now represent the company (which began at the University of Edinburgh) in Ecuador.

Thanks to the knowledge I have acquired, I now contribute to finding solutions for Ecuador to consume more efficient energy and be more environmentally friendly.
