Speak Like A Native...in Business

The College Alumni Board invites you to attend the next College Connection with IU alumna, Jennifer Crittenden, BA'81, MBA'88.

Good decisions in business are based on quantifiable information, but being able to explain what the numbers mean is as important as getting the numbers right in the first place. Business leaders must demonstrate strong financial skills and be able to articulate their interpretation of the data. Women, in particular, when working in corporate America, should learn to speak the language of the business game, even if it means learning a few sports idioms.

Raised on a farm in southern Indiana and following a B.A. in Linguistics and French, Jennifer was an unlikely candidate to graduate with an MBA from the Kelley School of Business and enter corporate America. To her surprise, she excelled in her new world and spent the next twenty years building a scintillating career, rising from Financial Analyst to Chief Financial Officer, working for big pharma and biotech companies in the US, Europe, and the UK. Now she has now come full circle, returning from numbers and technology, to her love of words by putting her passion to print.  Ms. Crittenden recently published her first book, The Discreet Guide for Executive Women. . .How to Work Well with Men (and other difficulties).
