Alumni Who Are: Soon-To-Be MBA Alumna on Changing Lives Through Financial Education

Look for more stories on alumni who are serving their communities in the Summer 2015 Tower magazine, hitting mailboxes in just a few weeks.

"What brings me the most joy is seeing the light bulb turn on when an individual correlates the lesson taught to their personal situation. I mean pure joy; because I know this person is one step further to improving their financial future," said Greer Christian .

Christian, who will graduate with her MBA in just a few weeks, is vice president and community development officer at Wells Fargo Bank. In that role, Christian is charged with serving as the link between the San Francisco-based bank and its stakeholders and the communities it serves. Her main areas of focus are stakeholder engagement, public policy advocacy, reputation management and corporate social responsibility strategies and programs.

Practically, that takes the form of everything from overseeing charitable donations to teaching in the financial education program. Teaching and overseeing the education program is the most meaningful part of the job for Christian.

"When a person or family becomes financially empowered there is stability and peace in their lives; overall they make better choices for the future," said Christian.

Christian credits UD with shaping her into an even more solid professional and for delivering that personal touch to ensure students receive the most out of their MBA coursework.

"I am most grateful for my professors. Each of them has challenged me in areas that I didn't know existed. This was very important to me because I think an MBA program should not be only about textbook and theory," said Christian.
