JP Morgan Representative to Speak at Whitman, Oct. 30


The National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) student chapter in the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University will host a guest lecture by Jason Mills ’95 (IST) ’96 (G), director of global finance technology for JP Morgan Chase and co-founder of Black and Latino Information Science and Technology Support (BLISTS) on Oct. 30, 2007 at 7 p.m. in Room 101. The lecture, on “Leadership, Personal Transformation, and Execution and Excellence” will also include a presentation of JP Morgan Chase internship opportunities for summer 2008.

Mills co-founded BLISTS in 1992 while still a student at SU. The not-for-profit organization focuses on transforming under-developed communities through the use of information science and technology so that community members can pursue career goals and connect with professional mentors in their chosen industry.

NABA is the leading student club nationwide in influencing minority groups to enter into business professions.

“NABA is excited to host Jason Mills,” says Randy Elder, professor of accounting and director of the Lubin School of Accounting. “His experience with JPMC and BLISTS is a great example of combining accounting and finance with entrepreneurial skills, and we hope all Whitman students will be inspired by his insights.”
