A career in maths can take you to exotic places.
In a company where maths is central to everything, ANZ business manager Michelle Dobson believes maths can open doors. “Maths can be applied to many different areas in banking,” she says. Michelle manages projects that use technology to improve the bank’s day-to-day practices, and spots opportunities for new technology to transform the business.
Michelle completed a Bachelor of Business (Management)/Information Systems at La Trobe University, then joined the ANZ Technology Graduate Program, where she learnt how core banking systems were designed and developed.
Her first management role saw Michelle contributing to ANZ’s largest ever technology upgrade, improving bank transaction software used in 17 countries. She got the chance to travel and live like a local in Cambodia, Vietnam and China.
“Maths has given me so many great opportunities, like experiencing different cultures and meeting amazing, inspiring people,” she says.
