A finance major with a minor in political science, Madeline Green of Concord, Mass., knew how to make the most of her years at the Isenberg School of Management. The 2022 graduate was involved with Women in Business (WiB), where she served as a historian on the executive board and was a student ambassador for the Women of Isenberg Conference her sophomore year. As a junior, Green served as treasurer for WiB and a peer mentor for the group’s underclassmen, discovering immense value in making connections with smart and career-oriented women.
Green interned at JP Morgan Chase in Jersey City, N.J., as a wholesale payments and corporate banking summer analyst. “I worked for 10 weeks with the real-time payments group on a handful of projects and got a great taste of the finance world,” she says. “I developed technical acumen but also learned how best to present to senior leaders and establish myself in a corporate environment. The Chase Career Center and my peers supported me throughout the application process, which included a detailed application and multiple rounds of interviews.”
Her most memorable course during her time at Isenberg was Intro to Entrepreneurship taught by Bob Lowry. “As a class, we read the book How to Win Friends & Influence People, by Dale Carnegie, Green says. “I use the communication skills discussed in that book daily in professional settings.”
She says one of the best things about attending Isenberg is how you’re always surrounded by driven and accomplished peers willing to answer your questions, lend a hand, and act as role models. Says Green: “The mentorship I received from upperclassmen throughout my time at Isenberg was invaluable, and I encourage underclassmen to pick the brains of their peers! I would be remiss to not also mention the Chase Career Center as making a difference in my Isenberg experience. Career Coaches Kim Figueroa and Dave Wells were huge catalysts in my professional development and are always prepared to assist students with resume help, interview prep and more.”
After graduating, Madeline Green returned to JP Morgan Chase as a wholesale payments and corporate banking rotational analyst.
