Executive Director, Organizational and Talent Development, J.P. Morgan

“I didn’t have the option of leaving my work and needed a program with flexibility and balance. I’m 10 years into my career and can only learn so much on the job. In the Cornell ILR Executive Master’s program, I’m interacting with   other HR professionals and we’re talking together about what’s really going on in the field.The on-campus experience helps us see how the online content can be applied to the work we do. I also hear how colleagues are interpreting what we’re learning, and that’s very helpful. There is so much diversity in this program. Diversity in thought. Diversity in industry. Diversity in roles. This was the best decision that I’ve ever made.”
