#WhitmanWatch: Taylor Brady
Class of 2015
Majors: Finance, Marketing Management
Minor: Information Management & Technology
Hometown: Mendham, New Jersey
As a fourth generation Syracuse University student, Taylor Brady has grown up surrounded by plenty of orange. However, it was more than her family’s legacy that solidified her decision to attend Syracuse. “What drove me to Syracuse was the school spirit, the campus feel but with the benefits of a small city, and the curriculum,” Taylor explained. “Basically everything about the school was right for me.”
Taylor shows her Syracuse spirit by serving as a student ambassador for University 100, leading tours with prospective students and assisting them in the college search process. She also serves as the Campus Day Co-Chair, responsible for organizing student volunteers and leading programs for visiting students and their parents.
At Whitman, Taylor is involved in Enactus as a project leader for the Jamesville Project. In this role, she helps women in the Jamesville Correctional Facility develop professional documents to pursue jobs following their release.
With majors in finance and marketing management in Whitman and a minor in information management and technology in the iSchool, Taylor has developed an extensive business skill set that has led to a number of different jobs and internships. She previously interned with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney as well as with Toys “R” Us, working in the global e-commerce division.
Last summer, Taylor interned with J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. in the global real estate finance division. In this role, she worked on a number of ad-hoc reports for different lines of the business, including a $1.8 billion profit and loss plan for 6,000 retail locations for 2015. Following completion of her internship, Taylor was offered and accepted a full-time position with J.P. Morgan in New York City to begin after graduation.
