Where are Our Graduates?

CJ Castelletti
MBA, 2013

CJ in a libraryI was hired as a financial institution examiner with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation in June of 2017. The position begins with one year of on-the-job training and culminates into a two-week training and examination session in Washington, DC with the FDIC to progress further into the profession. I am currently preparing for that trip to DC.  It’s an exciting career with enormous potential but there’s also an incredible amount left to learn.

I would have never been in this profession had it not been for the MBA I earned at UIS. The MBA helped prepare me for a career in the financial industry by providing a broad selection of challenging courses in accounting, finance, management, marketing, and behavioral business aimed at helping me to develop a strong business acumen and skills necessary to succeed in today’s fast-paced business environment.

My past sales and management background combined with my MBA provides me the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the financial sector for years to come.  This is a rewarding and challenging career and I can thank UIS in part for this great opportunity!
