2009: Economics & History
Currently: Senior Manager, Corporate Development, General Motors — Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany
"My economics degree provided valuable skills, career visibility, and a foot in the door to the investment banking / M&A advisory industry at an entry level after graduation. My Duke network also helped me land a great transition role in Corporate Strategy and Mergers & Acquisitions for a Fortune 50 company after gaining 2.5 years of finance experience."
"I would encourage students to look outside of the typical bulge bracket track directly after graduation if concerned with work/life balance. Many large public companies are pivoting toward hiring more undergraduates versus MBAs, as it gives manager a bit more runway to prepare new employees for more senior responsibilities and positions."
