17 Nov Tom S., Product Manager
MBA GENERAL MANAGEMENT-A Day in the Life of TOM S, Product manager for a new online startup educational website that offers free exam prep.
What I Do
I work in the global securities services group and am responsible for creating investor solutions as a product manager. I deal with forecasting and new product ideas within Europe and the U.S. to drive sales.
This job requires a little bit of everything you learn in the MBA because it involves a lot of finance and market research skills (for forecasting) as well as operations knowledge because we also have to consider capacity constraints.
I am in my second rotation of a two-year, three-rotation program; each rotation lasts six to nine months. My first rotation was in New York, where I did process management, revenue work, and forecasting to support the pricing function of the business. After the third rotation, I will look at where I want to be within the banking firm for my first permanent placement role.
