After completing a business degree in Finance at Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina, I ventured to Detroit to work as a Financial Analyst with Ford Motor Company. I have spent several years rotating through different roles in the Finance department. My current role involves managing a $10B annual budget for the Contests and Incentives team in Retail Variable Marketing. After only a brief time in Michigan at Ford, it was clear that pursuing an MBA would help me to further my career, and Michigan Ross was the perfect fit.
The Weekend program at Michigan has afforded me the opportunity to attend an elite University while continuing to advance professionally in my career. The top tier professors emphasize action-based learning through various case studies and projects. It is extremely valuable to be able to learn new business concepts in class and immediately apply them in my daily work environment. As the Automotive Industry continues to face new challenges, Ross has helped me become better equipped to analyze and influence key business decisions. The best part of the program has been the opportunity to meet and work with a group of passionate individuals from various backgrounds with a diverse set of skills and experiences. The classmates I have met at Ross will definitely be lifelong friends and connections.
