In college, I was part of a dual bachelor's degree program where I studied Physics at Binghamton University for three years and Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University for two.
I had a lot of changes of heart when it came to deciding what I wanted to do, from academic research to pharmaceuticals, but I quickly realized during an internship that I preferred the dynamic and high energy workplaces often found in Technology and Finance. As such, when I was contacted by MThree, I was instantly attracted to the opportunity to work at the crossroads of the two disciplines I was interested in.
I have now been working as a Business Analyst at Morgan Stanley for 6 months, and it has been so rewarding to be in a company that values collaboration, while giving me room to learn independently and grow every day. No day is like any other, making it an incredibly exciting environment in which to work. Not only that, my team welcomed me in with open arms and have been incredibly supportive.
One of the best parts of my role is that I can see the impact the projects I work on have on the entire company, making the scope of my work that much more important to me. I find it fascinating to be able to learn the business demands of so many distinct areas within Morgan Stanley and figure out solutions that work best for everyone.
To the Graduates who are thinking of joining, or are joining the Alumni Program, my biggest piece of advice is to be a sponge and just soak in everything around you. You'll get the opportunity to learn so much from all sorts of people, so keeping yourself open is the best way to take advantage of your opportunities.
