MBA Women International Club organized a breakfast with a few of the Thunderbird alumni who were here to recruit students for Experienced Commercial Leadership Program (ECLP). They gave information about the program and walked us through the recruitment process. The alumni were all very excited to be back in campus even if it was just for a day.

Lisa Scovotti, a 2011 graduate, is now an Assistant Vice President of Corporate Finance Retail Lending at GE Capital. She said that it is amazing to be a part of such a big organization and the culture of the company is to be updated with the next big thing. Learning is ultimately important in GE and they are trained to keep track of all the latest happenings in corporate business. GE ranks 15th of Fortune’s world’s most admired companies.

The alumni considered the 2 year program very useful because it helped them network with other ECLP candidates who were from different parts of the world and it gave them the exposure to interact with senior executives of the company. The program was founded as a tool to improve their weaker skills and as an opportunity to network. To apply for the program, 5 to 8 years of professional work experience is mandatory. Since the company does not sponsor the work authorization (H1B visa), applicants are encouraged to apply in regions where they have a valid work permit. The application process can also be done through a mobile app. September 30th is the final date for dropping resumes and cover letters. First round of interviews will be held on October 8th and the final round of interviews can be expected around October 28th and 29th. During the final interview, interviewees are generally tested on their ‘on the spot’ selling ability.

When asked about the company’s culture with respect to marketing field, they revealed that it is very flexible and accommodating but requires its employees to be geographically mobile. The alumni found marketing communications, product management, Corporate Finance and the winterim course in Asia taken by Prof. Dash to be very useful.
