"The Doctoral Program in Administration Sciences allowed me to grow as a researcher. At the time, I received various support from CICP to present partial results of my doctoral thesis at national and international conferences, which allowed me to have greater interaction with other researchers. , I am an adjunct professor at UFRPE (Brazil) and I maintain collaboration with my advisor, as well as with other Brazilian and international researchers.
