MC School of Business Students Selected for Trustmark Management Training Program
May 4, 2012
Mississippi College School of Business graduates are among the cream of the crop every year.
But 2012 is especially strong for the MC School of Business with four of its students selected for the prestigious Trustmark Management Development Associate Program. It is a challenging and rewarding six to twelve month training program at the bank’s offices in Jackson.
The intensive training program is designed to prepare students for careers in the financial services industry by giving them a basic understanding of all Trustmark departments and services. Bank officials selected a total of seven students, and Mississippi College topped all schools with its four recipients.
Selected for the management development program are: MC’s Jason Jager, Julie Hall, Rachael McInnis and Trent Marchman. The three other students chosen were from Cornell University in New York, Jackson State University and Mississippi State University.
“We are very proud of the success of our business graduates in being employed by the strongest and most successful businesses in our state like Trustmark,” said MC School of Education Dean Marcelo Eduardo.
The program helps Trustmark train their future management team, he said. “We believe that this reaffirms the values, skills and knowledge that our business graduates bring to any organization,” Eduardo added.
Last year, there were three MC School of Business students named to join the Trustmark program.
Recent associates who completed the MDA program were placed in a number of areas, including commercial lending, commercial real estate, corporate services, credit analysis, retail branches and wealth management.
Karen Lindsey-Lloyd, director of retention and career services at Mississippi College, commended the Christian university’s business students. Their excellence in academics, community service, outstanding resumes and strong interviewing skills were among the factors helping them rise to the top, she said.
MC President Lee Royce also saluted the university’s business students for their latest achievements.
