Prior to Ross, I was an assistant vice president at Credit Suisse in New York City where I gained five years of experience in risk management and finance, focused on post financial crisis regulatory stress testing. This experience gave me an appreciation for analytical and strategic thinking, but I wanted to broaden my viewpoint outside of the pure banking industry. Obtaining an MBA gives me the opportunity to build upon my technical and analytical skills, while developing my strategic thinking and complex problem-solving skills. I selected Ross because it is the overall package for me with its best in class academics, experiential learning opportunities, social life, and athletics. I am proud to be a member of such a talented, diverse, and inspiring class, and I look forward to the growth and learning the next two years will bring. Go Blue!
