I went to business school to transition from financial services into general business management. The leaders of the Summer Associates Program (SAP) and Management Associates Program (MAP) have been terrific in their support of helping me achieve this career goal.
“In my summer associate role, I was part of a team that delivered a global growth strategy for our Tax & Accounting business.”
In this 10-week, fast-paced and critical project, we worked with strategy consultants, offshore resources and senior executives to analyze 30 international markets. I developed a central component of the overall strategy deck for the CEO of the business.
Now as part of the full-time MAP program, I work within the Legal business unit to formulate strategies and execute them along with business operations. The opportunity to work with senior executives gives me insight into how businesses are built, managed and grown. My direct impact to the bottom line is very satisfying.
Recently, my team struggled with how to gather meaningful information about our competitors. Working under a tight schedule and across geographic locations, we hired and managed an offshore team to come up with a technology-based solution for extracting competitive intelligence from public domain information. The enthusiasm and intelligence of my teammates helped us to find a workable solution while also making every day an enjoyable learning experience.

As a Summer Associate, I worked in Finance for Rapidly Developing Economies (RDEs), or what we now call Global Growth and Operations (GGO). The position required and fostered a global mindset, because our team was spread across Brazil, Russia, India, China and the Gulf. The project gave me a holistic sense for the company, as our team collaborated with all of the Markets Business Units to understand the various needs and articulate a unified vision and ask for the year ahead. It was a phenomenal experience to be able to work with the Global Head of Finance problem solving for the company in geographic regions that I am so passion about.
“From week one, she gave me real responsibility and wholly integrated me into her team.”
For the summer team case challenge, I worked with a fantastic team of four MBAs and one PhD to explore mobile technology in the context of communities and collaboration. Working with my peers, who brought diverse set of experiences to our team, we evaluated the mobile landscape and provided an external perspective as to the potential implications for companies like Thomson Reuters. At the end of the summer, we presented our findings to a number of executives, who engaged us in thoughtful dialogue about our ideas and research. The experience and exposure were remarkable, and it rounded out my primary summer role by enabling me to get to know people on the product and technology side of the organization.
Joining as a full-time Management Associate following graduation, I am doing my first rotation in Investor Relations. This role combines finance and strategy, and provides me with unique exposure to the perspective of our shareholders and the priorities of our senior management. This rotation will serve as an ideal foundation before I venture on to roles that are more operational in nature and more international in scope within the company.
Arriving as a Summer Associate at Thomson Reuters, I knew that this was a nearly $13 billion business that delivered about 90% of its revenue electronically. Clearly, this organization was driven by and dependent on technology.
With my long-standing interest in technology, it was a perfect fit as I joined the Technology Strategy team at a time when they were just undertaking a review and consolidation of products and platforms across businesses.
“I had the unique chance to combine in-the-trenches analysis on specific products and platforms with high-level work on the strategic direction for the group.”
Additionally, I worked with a team of fellow Summer Associates on a project to identify potential new sources of business in the Green Energy Information space, and had the incredible opportunity to present our findings to the CEO, CFO, and other senior leadership of the company.
My first rotation as a full-time Associate was also in a highly strategic group – working in Investor Relations, I had a unique window into the highest levels of financial planning, decision-making, communication, and management of the investor ecosystem around our organization.
Since then I have focused on Thomson Reuters’ strategy in mobile, and the development of mobile products for our customers. We have a unique challenge: not only do we have to adapt to a broader mobile landscape that is shifting beneath our very feet, we also have to figure out what this means for our world of professional customers and their highly demanding, highly specific needs. This presents us with a fascinating, complex series of questions to solve, and every day in the mobile product world brings interesting new challenges! This makes the work fascinating – but it is the culture of collaboration and colleagues that I enjoy working with that makes work fun.
