    MBA Alumni
    Heather Richter ’08, MBA, works as a consultant for IBM today. She is based out of Boston but travels each week.
    Most	of	her	projects	are	with	industrial	clients.	Generally,	Heather	fills	a	supply	chain	role.	She	is	trained	in	the	
    Materials Management module of SAP but works cross modules.

    The	classes	that	Heather	took	while	at	Clarkson	are	very	applicable	to	her	daily	work.	Having	an	understanding	of	
    accounting	terms	as	gained	in	the	two	accounting	classes	allows	Heather	to	better	understand	the	finances	of	her	
    clients.	Her	supply	chain	classes	have	proven	to	be	the	most	relevant.

    IBM has about 400,000 employees worldwide. The presence of Clarkson alumni within IBM makes it seem like Clarkson
    would	be	a	large	university.	Within	IBM,	there	is	a	Clarkson	community	and	even	since	Heather	has	left	Potsdam,	N.Y.,	
    she has close ties to the University at her workplace.



    Scott Goodrich ’05, MBA, also received a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering from Clarkson University in 2003. In early 2005,
    Scott began developing an infrared obscurant screen with the U.S. Army via Clarkson’s CAMP organization. Along with his own obscurant
    research, Scott began consulting with an assortment of companies to modify current products or retrofit processes for scale-up testing. Scott
    is	presently	working	as	a	process	engineer	at	Alcoa’s	Massena,	N.Y.,	Operations.	He	provides	technical	expertise	and	guidance	on	process	
    improvement and stability. Scott is also responsible for leading environmental, health and safety driven initiatives through the department. Most
    recently, his focus has been on doubling his product stream as part of a billion dollar expansion project.
9   “Working in an engineering support role requires me to interact with a vastly diverse workforce. Learning to communicate with a new-
    hire laborer, a 40+ year skilled tradesman and plant manager all in the same day requires the kind of education I received during my MBA
    tenure. Technical expertise is useless without the means to translate into functional terminology.”
