Alumna thrives in Microsoft Western Europe manager role
Two-time Moore School alumna Halle Hughes was promoted to Microsoft Western Europe in her first year with the company.
Hughes graduated from the Moore School’s Master of International Business double-degree program. As part of that program, she was able to earn a second degree at Aalto University. She credits the program for the opportunity to work with a multinational company.
“There were people in my [Moore School] program from all over the world as well as people who didn’t major in business for their bachelor’s degree,” Hughes said. “This [understanding of diversity] was strengthened even more at Aalto University where I was working with students who had design and technical backgrounds in the international design business management program. I think the MIB [double-degree] program taught me empathy and how to constantly challenge the current view or way of working, two essential attitudes that I use in my daily work.”
