Get to Know Julia

"Before starting at the Tepper School, I lived in Baltimore, Maryland, working in asset servicing for an investment management firm. I'm a finance graduate from the University of Maryland. At the time of applying to Tepper, I was interested in moving from the investment operations space into the corporate finance space. Now, I do financial planning and analysis, budgeting, and accounting for an education non-profit in New York City.

"I chose the Tepper School because it is a well-recognized MBA school with a strength and focus in analytics. In addition, the PTOH program gave me the flexibility to continue my education without committing to a physical location, an attribute that was necessary given my determined career change. I like Pittsburgh for the food (I used to work for BNY Mellon and went to Pittsburgh for work trips) and the cleanliness (compared to New York). In my spare time, I like going to museums and concerts, traveling, and trying new foods."
