Adelaida Correa Miranda holds an undergraduate degree form Pontificia Universidad Católica in Chile. Prior to studying at Harris, Correa Miranda applied her skills in quantitative analysis as an economic analyst for LATAM Airlines Group. Concurrently, her volunteer work serving disadvantaged elderly populations in India and Chile instilled a desire to develop policies to protect these groups from poverty and conflict.
As a student at Harris, she worked under the Development Economics Vice Presidency at the World Bank. She examined several countries’ credit reporting systems to evaluate their performance. In this role, she interfaced with country representatives from Latin America and Africa as they explained how new reforms and procedures would ease access to credit and consequently facilitate business around the world. Following graduation, she served as a fellow in Zambia with TechnoServe, an international nonprofit that promotes business solutions to poverty in the developing world by linking people to information, capital, and markets, and later as a consultant with the Inter-American Development Bank. Correa Miranda currently works as a consultant for the Boston Consulting Group in Chile.
