Alumni Success

Marcelo J. Rossi’s career journey has included international stops that have broadened his education and worldview.

Marcelo J. Rossi’s career journey has included international stops that have broadened his education and worldview.

“Since I got my first degree in 1981, I started both an academic and professional career,” says Marcelo, a partner at financial advising firm Del Castillo & Rossi in Argentina. “I began to make my first steps as a professor at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario, while also starting to grow in the field of corporate finance as a professional advisor.”

The early 1990s brought economic shake-ups in Argentina that motivated Marcelo to re-examine his goals.

“By that time, like many others, I was seriously thinking to leave the country in search of better opportunities,” Marcelo recalls.

But as the country entered a time of stability and growth, Marcelo discovered new opportunities. He earned his Master of Business Administration degree from Universidad Austral in Argentina in 1991 and a year later reached tenure and became the head of the school’s finance department.

Success would continue a few years later when Marcelo won a scholarship from the Canadian government to conduct comparative research between Argentina and Canada on the topic of entrepreneurship.

In 1998, he became the director of Executive Education at Universidad Austral. He shared his new responsibilities with his continuing teaching duties and consultancy work. But, he still had a goal of broadening his education outside of Argentina.
 
“The 2000s came with new winds of change,” he says. “I felt the need to start a project that was postponed year by year — the doctoral program. It was clear that my next career step would be “internationalization,” thus the DBA (Doctor of Business Administration degree) from Argosy was my best choice.”

Committed to his work in academia and business, Marcelo continues to teach finance and lead the MBA program at Universidad Austral while also running his consultancy firm.
