Global new product development @ MasterCard
BostInno - 01/29/2016
After spending my last semester studying abroad in London, England at the University of Queen Mary, I could not have been any happier to spend the next six months working at MasterCard’s Global Headquarters, located in Purchase, NY. My dream has always been to move to NYC post-graduation. Purchase is only 45 minutes outside of the city, which makes it convenient for spending weekends in the city. You are also able to live in NYC and do the reverse commute, since there is a complimentary shuttle which runs from the train station to MasterCard. As an avid traveler, one of the key reasons I chose MasterCard was due to the fact that it’s a global company located in over 210 countries around the world.
MasterCard is on the brink of innovation as it strives to transform society into “a world beyond cash.” Recently, MasterCard introduced MasterPass, a digital payment solution that enables consumers to pay with any payment card, anywhere, using any device. The company is constantly evolving and encourages innovative thinking, regardless of which department you work in or your job title. Forbes recently ranked MasterCard as one the World’s Most Innovative Companies.
