Meet Joy - Presidential Management Associate

How did you first connect with The Estée Lauder Companies? 

I met a recruiter on campus and applied for a summer internship with Clinique. After I completed my MBA, I became a Presidential Management Associate and did my first rotation in e-commerce. Currently I'm in a corporate rotation in Consumer Engagement, where I'm able to see different aspects of every single brand.

What attracted you to the company? 

I’ve been kind of a beauty junkie my entire life, and it’s exciting now to be working for a company that actually has the power to really bring those products to life. And to give the consumers what they want, and what they might not know they want just yet. Also, personally, I wanted to work for a company that had philanthropy as part of its DNA. 

Why work here?

It's a great opportunity to come out of business school and be able to rotate through different brands and functions. People here have such diverse backgrounds. You can learn from anyone. My manager comes from a startup and she is constantly challenging me to take charge, giving me a lot of freedom.

Joy's education: Harvard Business School, MBA; The University of Texas at Austin, BBA, Business Honors Program, Marketing

Meet Karthik:

What I do now: Presidential Management Associate in Corporate Strategy, part of the Global Finance & Strategy team

My rotations included: Artisanal/Luxe Fragrances for the Canadian Affiliate; Online Marketing and Merchandising, Global Online
Education: University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management, MBA
What I've gained from the program: It’s been a fascinating learning experience. I’ve gone from understanding how a regional strategy is created, then implemented. I’ve seen the inner workings of the brands and then worked in one of the most profitable and growing channels. Corporate Strategy is the perfect capsule, where I can draw on what I’ve learned in my prior rotations.
