Part of the work we do at the Center for Operational Excellence is collaborating with our member companies to ensure they’re connecting with our students for internships and full-time jobs. Dozens, occasionally more than 100, students each year head to our member companies for temporary or permanent employment.
We’re exceedingly proud that one of our own, COE Associate Director Andrea Prud’homme, has been recognized by Ohio State University’s Career Services office for her efforts in supporting student career development. Prud’homme was nominated for the Career Services Award by Fisher’s Office of Career Management. Read more about the honor in a Fisher news article.
The many hats Prud’homme wears around Fisher contribute to the impact she makes in the career paths of her students. In addition to her COE role, she’s an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Management Sciences, and she also serves as the faculty adviser to the Buckeye Operations Management Society.
One student from BOMS said Prud’homme has “a unique talent for getting us back to the present, and helping us stay on track. Her advice and support are invaluable.”
