My first three years working in Fiserv were very challenging and rewarding. In order to progress in my career I needed to develop skills in the areas of best practice management, strategic thinking, decision making and leadership. I wanted to gain the insights needed to understand and respond quickly to the dynamics of Fiserv’s’ rapidly changing business environment.
After speaking with my manager about these goals it was suggested that I undertake an MBA programme to gain the leadership skills and breadth of knowledge required for a senior role.
With the support of Fiserv I decided to pursue an Executive MBA in the University of Limerick.
During the MBA program I moved to a Global Product Management role. I now have product management responsibility for all Value Added Services in GBS EMEA. The MBA has given me the knowledge and skills necessary for this position and is helping me drive innovative solutions and value for our customers.
