For two summers in a row, James Hahn '16 from Yardley, Pa., interned with MetLife. He worked in the internal audits department in Bridgewater, N.J. An accounting major in Susquehanna's Sigmund Weis School of Business, Hahn used skills he learned in a wide range of classes.
"I did various audits that looked at different parts of MetLife's business to make sure they were running efficiently, they didn't have any fraud, and make sure everything is going well. I looked at the retail and annuity products to make sure the claims were being processed properly and then I looked at long-term care to make sure people are actually qualifying for those products."
How did Susquehanna prepared you?
"The general business curriculum really prepared me to see everything. From Global Business Perspectives to Business Policy and Strategy and Corporate Financial Management, having the background of those three classes really helped me. You need to have a background in every part of business to do auditing."
What did you like most about this internship?
"I liked the challenge of going through all these documents to make sure everything was right. It's a lot like a mystery to piece together."
