Since 2015, my career has been focused on advising utility and energy companies on raising debt capital in the public markets. In this position, I have had the pleasure of providing support for a variety of debt financings, including: large-scale acquisitions, bond refinancings, renewable energy capital expenditures, and more. During these last five years, the need to broaden my knowledge base became both apparent and desired. To help deliver the best service to my clients, understanding both their short-term operations and long-term strategy would be essential.
The education philosophy of action-based learning was a clear draw to me; I would have the opportunity to integrate my learnings from Ross with my job in real-time. This real-time integration was an attractive differentiator between the full-time and online program. Not only do my classmates and I benefit from the world-class education, network, and support at Ross, but the added value I will be able to provide my clients will be a direct result from this program and the Ross education philosophy.
