A business degree could very well find you working for a top-20 accounting and advisory firm and on the board of several influential committees. At least that’s what a Bachelor of Business Administration from Temple University earned Lori Reiner, who shares with us how her education has successfully impacted her career.
What is your educational background?
“I’m a proud Temple Owl. My business degree is from the Fox School of Business at Temple. I’ve remained actively engaged with Temple as a professional and my firm has a long history as a top recruiter of Fox accounting students, many of whom begin with us at the internship level – as I did myself with the EisnerAmper predecessor firm Goldenberg Rosenthal.”
What is your background in management?
“I was admitted to the partnership of Goldenberg Rosenthal in 1999. As a partner there and now with EisnerAmper, my management experience has included business development, building the right teams of professionals to best serve the needs of very different clients and focusing on mentoring and staff development. As partner-in-charge of our Philadelphia practice, my management role has now expanded to include developing the efficiencies of a large complex organization while maintaining our culture of responsiveness and collegiality.”
How has your education fueled your management success?
“My education at Temple provided me with a solid foundation of knowledge and the opportunity to develop my skills in real-time, in real world environments. The experiences I had learning at an urban college prepared me for my job as a professional in the business community of a world-class city. There could not have been a better training ground.”
