SolBridge Alumni Highlight: Dana Mustafina
This month we are excited to recognize Dana Mustafina, SolBridge BBA alum class of 2017 from Kazakhstan, for her exceptional accomplishments. Dana is a renewable energy and sustainability professional and currently working in the clean energy solutions arm of PETRONAS, a state-owned conglomerate of Malaysia and one of the world's top Oil and Gas companies. In her role as a Commercial Analyst, Dana develops financial models and provides commercial assessments for renewable energy projects in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. In addition, she spearheads several initiatives, including the development of distributed solar and Renewable Energy Certificates in Malaysia.
Dana's journey began as a Business Development and Marketing Associate at a Korean company specializing in energy storage systems. She subsequently joined a Singaporean environmental sustainability consulting firm, assisting corporates in achieving their net-zero and carbon neutrality targets. Her passion for sustainability and climate change was ignited during her exchange program at UC Irvine in the USA, where she discovered her true calling.
During her time at SolBridge, Dana was an exceptional student, excelling in her studies and earning a full scholarship while participating in various programs and initiatives, including exchange semesters to France and USA. Upon graduation from SolBridge in 2017, she followed her new-found passion and pursued a Master's degree in Science in Green Business and Policy from KAIST, thanks to another full scholarship.
Dana attributes her success to the solid foundation she received at SolBridge: "I always got help during every step along the way, and my foundation of who I am today was developed at SolBridge." We are immensely proud of Dana's achievements and look forward to seeing her continue to make an impact in renewable energy and sustainability.
