Michele received her MBA with a concentration in Information Technology Management (ITM) in May 2013. She is currently employed as a Business/Technology Analyst in Merck’s IT Emerging Talent Rotational (ETR) Program. ETR enables recent graduates to develop technical, business, and leadership capabilities while rotating through different areas of the company for a two-year period, before settling into a permanent position. For her first rotation, Michele is working in Global Real Estate Services. This team manages Merck’s worldwide portfolio of offices, laboratories, manufacturing facilities, etc., and implements solutions to optimize the real estate footprint and increase workspace efficiency.
Michele initially enrolled in the Fox full-time MBA program because she was seeking a career change and new challenges in a growing business. Prior to earning her MBA, Michele worked as a Production Coordinator in the TV/ film industry but became increasingly interested in a career in technology and business. She decided to pursue a future in IT and found that the Fox MBA program provided the foundation she needed to enhance her skillset and become a valuable asset in the business world.
“After receiving an education from Fox – specifically in the MIS department – I felt fully prepared to begin a career in IT. I have found that the topics covered in the ITM coursework not only apply directly to my day-to-day job, but also help me understand and contribute to the fundamental business objectives that drive the company. In addition, Fox MIS gave me the opportunity to learn from and network with industry professionals, which ultimately led to my position at Merck.”
Congratulations to Michele and continued success
