FEI Detroit honors Ilitch School students
The Detroit Chapter of Financial Executives International (FEI) will honor recent Mike Ilitch School of Business graduates Troy Williams (finance and accounting, December 2020) and Amanda Price (M.B.A., December 2020) at a virtual event on February 24.
The Financial Executives International Academic Award recognizes outstanding undergraduate and graduate students at Southeastern Michigan universities pursuing degrees that emphasize accounting or finance.
Williams earned his double major in finance and accounting with a minor in economics last December, graduating summa cum laude with a cumulative GPA of 3.96.
Starting in February, he will begin a full-time position as a valuation analyst at the global financial advisory firm, Stout.
Outside of his success in the classroom, Williams was an active member of the Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity and completed four internships during his time at Wayne State University. These included assignments at Hantz Financial Services, Owens Corning, Azimuth Capital Management and General Motors where he served as an equities specialist, corporate economics, research associate and financial analyst intern, respectively.
Price earned her M.B.A. with concentrations in finance and information systems management last December. She was an active student leader during her time at the Ilitch School while also working full time.
Price served as vice president of finance for the Graduate Business Student Association, a social and professional club for Ilitch School M.B.A. students. She was also an active member of the Wayne Black Business Student Association and the National Black M.B.A. Association.
Through her involvement with these student organizations, Price participated in a variety of activities, including packaging food at Gleaners Food Bank, planning a volunteer event for Ronald McDonald House Charities in Detroit, and attending the National Black M.B.A. Association’s 34th Annual Scholarship and Awards Dinner.
Price earned an associate of arts in accounting in 2017 and a bachelor of science in business in 2018 from the University of Phoenix. During her time as an undergraduate student, she worked for DFCU Financial for more than four years.
Price now works as a bank examiner for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago branch in Detroit, just completing her first year of service.
