Wonder what it’s like to be at the top of your game in the finance world? Just ask Ross alum Jessica Goldburt, MBA ’11. She was recently named one of 50 Top Women in Finance on Finance & Commerce’s annual list.
Jessica, a senior financial analyst at General Mills, attended the Nov. 21 ceremony in Minneapolis to recognize the honorees, described as “women who are making outstanding contributions to their professions and communities.”
“It’s a very exciting opportunity to be recognized amongst such accomplished women, with such varied experiences and career paths,” she says. “Those nominated care deeply about advancing women in finance career paths, and that focus on development and mentoring really resonates with me ... This is a huge honor, and I hope seeing the success of the women in this group inspires other women to pursue careers in finance.”
Goldburt says her Ross education was key to her accomplishments. “A few critical skills come to mind that were particularly honed during my time at Ross,” she says, such as “influencing across teams, developing a future-state vision that address key stakeholder needs, and creating frameworks/processes to ensure the vision was sustainable.”
