FLP Associate

The FLP provides a great transition from college. You go through the program together as a cohort, which provides a support system, a sounding board, and people to lean on as you adjust to the working world. More

The program allows you to work with amazing and smart individuals, some of the best in the industry, and interact with them as real people, not just managers and executives. UTC makes incredible products that make modern life possible, but the people are the reason I am proud to work at UTC.



FLP Associate

I had the opportunity to conduct business on three continents with people from all over the world while working in Singapore as an expat. More

I have expanded my professional network to include many of UTC’s 7,000 finance employees, and have made many lifelong friends along the way. Most importantly, I come to work with a smile nearly every day knowing that I work for a growing business that is changing the future of the world.



My position at the Collins Aerospace’s Global Service Partners, Propulsion Systems Division, has exposed me to a dynamic environment where I operate as a multifunctional finance lead supporting operations, accounting and controls, and financial forecasting. More

The majority of my interactions involves senior management and requires participation in preparing and presenting the analytics that drive our business. Outside of finance, my participation includes working with our Pollution Prevention team. This experience has been amazing because we are focused on improving both our environment and bottom line!
