Meghan Tomassetti ’19 was interested in business at an early age. As a youth, she would often visit the office of her family’s business, Tomassetti Distributors, after school. This experience inspired her to pursue a career in business like her father and grandfather. However, she was unaware of what specific area of business she wanted to learn. Having an older brother who attended Syracuse University, she knew that she would be able to explore different business career paths by attending SU’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management.
“The most beneficial part of my Whitman experience has been all of the opportunities to learn more about different career paths,” said Tomassetti. “I attended the Whitman Women on Wall Street Trip this past May, during which I was able to learn about careers for women in financial services. After attending this trip, I came to realize that I want to pursue a career in corporate finance.”
In addition to her interest in finance, Tomassetti also took an interest in supply chain management. During this past summer, Tomassetti was also able to intern at Nestle Waters North America, a leading Healthy Hydration Company. She worked on the procure-to-pay team under the supply chain operations department. Her job included performing transactions in the SAP test environment, using the vendor site check tool to conduct the vendor approval process and creating purchase orders and good receipts, which helped gain experience on both the finance and the supply chain side of the operations process.
On campus, Tomassetti is actively involved in student organizations.
“I am a member of the Whitman Student Government and a founding member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority,” said Tomassetti. Being actively involved in these organizations on the diverse cultured campus has helped me gain experiential leadership skills.”
According to Tomassetti, after graduation she hopes to find a career in corporate finance or supply chain finance.
