Name: Shelley Duncan ’92
“As a student, I received a great professional start in Isenberg’s accounting program,” recalls Shelley Duncan ’92, a partner for over ten years in Deloitte’s Technology Media & Telecommunications practice. “Isenberg’s culture was inclusive, like a family. Professors like Asebrook and Simpson cared deeply about students becoming successful. Over the years, I’ve often returned to Isenberg to recruit because the program has some of the best students in the market.”
According to Isenberg MBA graduate Michael Philipp ’80, financial acumen gives you the tools to effect positive change. The former Chairman and CEO of Credit Suisse Europe, Middle East, and Africa is chairman and managing partner of his own merchant bank, Ambata, which capitalizes and brings best practices to projects in developing nations (principally in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America). Those ventures, emphasizes Michael, all focus on clean, sustainable energy, food, water, or waste.
