TMMBA Alumni Profile: Doreen Bingo
TMMBA Class of 2010
Chief Engineer – Test & Evaluation, The Boeing Company
I feel so fortunate to have studied in the midst of the banking crisis and recovery. Karma Hadjimichalakis changed our content nearly every week to try to keep up with the latest money policy changes. I don’t think I would understand the world money system nearly as well as I do had I not studied through this lens.
How has the TMMBA curriculum helped advance your career at Boeing?
TMMBA coursework in accounting, finance, and economics have the most direct impact with regards to my career development. Understanding the fundamentals of financial forecasting and market impacts has provided meaningful context for me and it informs my strategies around business investments.
What was it like to learn in a cohort-based program?
Studying and learning in a cohort was a great experience. The cohort design allowed for deep discussion and debate through the program. The diversity of thought in these discussions and leaning into differing views helped me become more open minded. I believe this made me a better teammate and leader. We also built lasting relationships which I leverage often.
