As part of this program, Joe has rotated through several positions around the country, learning the ins-and- outs of the company’s internal operations.

How has his UD education set him apart?

Joe says that his Chemistry degree from UD, though not typical for a finance professional, helped him develop the deductive and analytical mindset that has allowed him to in excel in the business world. “I honed my leadership skills at UD as well,” he said. “I mentored younger students while I was in the Chemistry department, a practice which I have carried on by mentoring the newer analysts at GE Capital.”

How did his experience at UD prepare him for the future?

Joe credits the University of Dallas’ Office of Personal Career Development with helping him build the relationships necessary to secure a permanent position after graduation. “Working with the OPCD helped me get the internship which led to my career with GE Capital.”
