"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
"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.
