A CESR standout

Jamie GreenHaving worked as a CESR teaching assistant and student assistant for over three years, Green demonstrated dedication and passion for the CESR community.

This past May, Green completed a five-year concurrent Masters in Accounting program, a Bachelors in Spanish for the Profession and is sitting for the CPA examination. This scholar’s achievements even reach beyond the classroom and workplace, placing twice in the annual CESR Business Ethics Case Competition. Green is thankful for her time with CESR and all she has learned over the years.

“My work and classes through CESR have helped shape the last four years at Leeds. Not only have I met amazing people, but I am also able to look at any potential employer in a holistic view to make sure their values and culture align with my own,” says Green.

Green lands dream job

Jamie Green has taken her talents to KPMG’s Deal Advisory Rotational Program, where she rotates through different deal groups (Mergers & Acquisitions, Strategy, Infrastructure, Accounting Advisory Services, and more). KPMG only hires a select group of prestigious graduates to join them at their offices in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Denver.

The CESR team could not be more proud of Jamie and can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.

The Marc Prisant and Heidi Heltzel Scholarship for Ethics and Social Responsibility

Introduced in spring 2016, the Marc Prisant and Heidi Heltzel Scholarship for Ethics and Social Responsibility is awarded to at least two students a year who demonstrate dedication to the Center for Education on Social Responsibility (CESR). Although Marc and Heidi never attended CU, they were inspired to start this scholarship through their friendship with Michael Leeds. They applaud the work being done at the Leeds School of Business, specifically at CESR given their passion for social responsibility. Marc and Heidi fund this scholarship with the goal of having it grow over time and motivate future generations through CESR’s work.
