Ginienne Rose SANTORO


My name is Ginienne Santoro and I am from Chicago, Illinois, where I obtained my MBA in Managerial Economics, Finance, and Strategy from Northwestern University while working in the Financial Services industry. I have been working for a global Risk Management firm in various capacities both in Chicago and New York City since receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the College of the Holy Cross in 2007. After completing my MBA, I was determined to augment my expertise and interest in the integration of economics and public policy in an international context. This ethos of inquiry I have developed around the economic and social issues affecting globalization in our increasingly complex and interconnected world has motivated my decision to participate in the MESCI program. I look forward to achieving an enhanced global perspective, an improved ingenuity, and a substantiated validation to skillfully and holistically research crucial economic and geopolitical issues related to developing economies and globalization. I am excited that through MESCI I can examine these issues in connection with the demands of a global economy to create a lasting significance in the academic, professional, and business worlds.
