Born and raised in Mexico City, Ricardo Castro has spent more than two decades with UTC, including Otis and currently UTC Climate, Controls & Security. His professional experience and international expertise have enabled him to take on challenging assignments in a variety of UTC Climate, Controls & Security divisions, including sales, account management, construction, project management and financial analysis.

Yet even an employee as experienced as Ricardo saw the tremendous career opportunities that the Employee Scholar Program could offer. “My background was sales administration,” he says. “But I wanted to learn and do more.”

That was when he enrolled in the MBA program at Purdue University, one of the top rated business schools in the United States. His master’s degree has enabled him to work on major UTC Climate, Controls & Security accounts, defining their impact on the company by applying sophisticated performance and economic metrics.

Says Ricardo, “The ESP enabled me to continue my education and acquire the tools I needed to be a better decision maker and more knowledgeable employee.”
