It’s not always essential to have a degree in finance to have a successful career in banking. Just ask Michaela Ludbrook, Global Head of GTO CB&S Debt and Emerging Market Operations at Deutsche Bank.
“I have a degree in French, actually. I never expected to spend my career working in finance, but it turned out to be a perfect fit for me,” Michaela said. “Having a variety of people from different backgrounds makes coming to work more enjoyable. Imagine how boring it would be if everyone in banking was the same.”
Why Deutsche Bank
“I felt compelled to join Deutsche Bank for two reasons,” Michaela explained. “First, the people. And second, the opportunity to make a difference.”
Michaela first came to the US from the UK in 1998 on a six-month assignment with another bank. In 2013, she made a career move to Deutsche Bank.
