John Cabot University has significantly contributed to the success of my career in the financial industry by helping me set foot in the “land of banks” and providing me with the necessary skills to become a project manager.
As a JCU student, I attended one of the Career Fairs organized by the Career Services Center, where I had the chance to meet two partners from EY Switzerland who later offered me an internship opportunity in Zurich to learn more about banking. After a year and a half of consulting experience, I decided to specialize in compliance within the financial industry and transitioned to Credit Suisse.
In my current role as a project manager within the COO office of Credit Suisse Compliance Department, I lead projects with the aim of complying with regulatory requirements of anti-money laundering measures to be adopted by the financial industry. My focus and expertise is on enhancing client on-boarding and life cycle management processes. Being a project manager for a global bank requires two important skills: stakeholder management and problem-solving.
John Cabot University helped me develop these skills through its unique multicultural environment, which helped acclimate me to working with and alongside a variety of cultures and backgrounds; my participation in Model United Nations and MUN conference; and, of course, the courses I undertook to earn my BA in Business Administration, which equipped me with the analytical mindset required to design solutions to business and social challenges.
