Connect with an Influential Alumni Network
“I’ve had the privilege of interacting with many risk professionals this year, and in none of my interactions did I approach it as a task to be checked off my list. Rather, it was a genuine opportunity to build relationships with successful professionals who, at one point, were standing in my shoes. Based on their experience, they are often able to connect dots that we as young professionals don’t even know exist yet.”
“Before the semester officially began, team RMI hit the ground running with an alumni event involving six risk professionals who shared their collective wisdom with first- and second-year students alike. The event featured both recent graduates and seasoned professionals who discussed topics ranging from discovering and navigating career paths to standing out professionally by exhibiting perseverance and ‘grit.’”
“I am dedicated to the success of the risk management and insurance specialization, so I remain active with current students. Like many of my fellow alumni, I mentor students, attend alumni receptions, recruit high-caliber talent for internships and full-time jobs, and participate in other ways. I have also been fortunate to connect with students in the classroom, while facilitating an applied learning project with Willis Towers Watson and as a lecturer in the Wisconsin MBA program. The connection alumni have to the program is invaluable and I am proud to be a Badger.”
