When Michelle started working as an audit accountant in Maine, it felt like a natural step. She enjoyed finance and knew she’d have ample opportunities to advance in the firm.
But a few years later, the work felt stale and limiting. Though she audited different industries, her work tasks rarely varied. She craved a challenging career that would expose her to new concepts. The kind of job that she knew started with a higher-caliber education. That’s when she decided to enroll at the Moore School.
I was interested in the one year program because I wanted to get back into the workforce as quickly as possible.”
Michelle spent the next year complementing her finance expertise with advanced business skills. She was thrilled to be recruited by ExxonMobil right on campus.
Today she’s rising through the ExxonMobil ranks and works at the company’s massive Houston campus. She is currently working on a new trading project, a global effort that has taken her to India, Brussels, Argentina, Brazil and Italy in the first six months of 2018.
Having my MBA, I feel like I came in with an advantage. Now that I’m in my third role in the company, I’m a supervisor managing cross roles, cross functional teams.”
