The Center for Global Management (CGM) hosted the inaugural discussion in its new Meet the Graduates Series with Brittany Blackamore (’16), an alumna of the FEMBA program and a global management specialization graduate. At Anderson, Blackamore’s global experiences expanded her world to new countries, inspired her love of macroeconomics and global finance, deepened her global acumen, and gave her the confidence she needed in her career. During an early evening, interactive conversation, Blackamore discussed her time at Anderson and shared thoughts on how to maximize the academic, career, and networking opportunities available. She addressed her career trajectory and some of the choices she made, and provided guidance on how students can maximize the MBA and use it as a launching pad for their career and passions. She also discussed Suitcase of Joy, the value of giving back, and making a sustainable impact. Students from across the full-time and fully employed MBA programs were inspired by Blackamore’s energy, passion and poise and left the discussion with some terrific tangible advice and tips. Prior to joining the FEMBA program, Blackamore worked for Fluor, a global engineering company, as a senior buyer. Through on-campus recruiting, she accepted an offer to join Experian’s MBA leadership development program where she advanced rapidly to become director of strategy. After three successful years at Experian, Blackamore joined the Boston Consulting Group as a management consultant focused on strategy and M&A in the private equity, technology, public sector, and healthcare industries. Her global immersion travels to developing countries inspired her to found her own nonprofit organization, Suitcase of Joy, whose mission is to bring joy and education to underserved children around the world. The discussion, organized by the Center for Global Management, was supported by the Management Consulting Association and Net Impact.
