Alumna Mireia Hernández Navarro’ 07 attended the American School of Barcelona, together with her sister, Dunia Hernández ‘11. 

She is currently a Financial Services Manager at Capgemini INVENT, the strategy and digital transformation business unit in Capgemini Group, based in Barcelona. 

"It is crucial to discover what it is that you are passionate about. I would advise new graduates not to be afraid to make changes to find the right job/company and to choose a career that continuously pulls them outside of their comfort zone."

Mireia holds a MSc in Industrial Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. She finished her degree at Chalmers Technical University in Göteborg, Sweden, where she did an exchange program under UNITECH - a program which offers engineering graduates global awareness and management skills. Her first professional experience was at Infineon Technologies AG in Munich (Germany) -  a market leader in the automotive and power semiconductors industry - where Mireia completed her Masters thesis as well. 

While at UNITECH, Mireia became involved in the Alumni Association for the program. She currently holds the position of Regional Group Coordinator for the UNITECH Barcelona Alumni Chapter.

After graduation, Mireia joined a graduate program at Ferrovial Services, where she rotated between different segments and business lines within the group. She gained a complete view of the company and was involved in different and diverse assignments during her time there. The experience allowed her to recognize her passion for consulting, a career that provides challenging short-term assignments across different capabilities and sectors, international experiences, and technology-driven solutions. Since then, Mireia has been part of the management consulting firm Capgemini INVENT, within the Capgemini Group and she could not be happier about her decision.

“You know you are in the right place when you see your learning curve is getting steeper and steeper.”

When asked about teachers at ASB who inspired her, Mireia replies, "Mr. Bartlett's passion for physics and math was one of the main reasons I studied Industrial Engineering." She further shares that "Mr. Smith's unique way of explaining Chemistry was so entertaining and still laughs when recalling all the “trucos” Mr. Smith had in order to remember reactions, formulas and Chemistry Laws."

Her favorite ASB memories include ski trips to Andorra, Halloween dances, and the Ibiza graduation trip. She also recalls being a member of the high school Student Council and participating in the Close Up Program in 2006.

"Being a part of such a multicultural community at ASB helped me develop a cultural awareness which I consider vital in the world we live in today."

ASB in one word?
"Dynamic and Empowering!"
