Formerly a logistics officer in the US Marine Corps, Joe got his MBA at The Wharton School. During his IC Fellowship, Joe helped The Doe Fund develop a monthly financial dashboard to track the profitability of the nonprofits’ various social enterprises that employ their formerly homeless, incarcerated, and addicted participants. He’s now applying that experience in the Finance Leadership Program at Merck, where he’s focused on vaccines in the Global Human Health segment.

Formerly an internal consultant at JP Morgan Chase, Julia got her MBA at Columbia Business School. During her IC Fellowship, she helped Plum Alley develop an investor network and product to invest in women- and minority-led startups. She’s now applying all that background as the Manager of Operations and Strategy for NY Road Runners, a nonprofit that works to make running accessible to everyone.


The biggest value of this program is the opportunity to take full ownership of a project from start to finish. I also gained so much from working closely with a passionate and talented group of MBA fellows. I learned a lot from so many different people this summer
