Duellman, a senior systems administrator in risk management IT with Marriott International, helped implement his employer’s risk management information system, which, as he told P&Q, “removed so many walls between teams and led to a much more functional and capable risk management department.”

Hagan advanced her career while earning her Smith degree by recently joining Maxio with the title Operations Director, Payments. This, after she joined Utilant (now Majesco) in August 2021 as a senior project manager. She credited Smith for an opportunity to thrive with “access to data analysis tools and technology through the likes of Bloomberg, MorningStar, and Mergent Intellect, plus the relationships that formed with fellow students and professors.”

Likewise, Duellman told P&Q the Smith program helped him better understand business needs and apply technology to meet those needs. “The specialization opportunity to focus on information systems has really empowered me to look at and work with data in a more efficient and targeted manner,” he said. “I’m far better equipped now to do data modeling and predictive analytics for my business.”
