For Courtney Dornell the Employee Scholar Program has made her dream job reality.

As she puts it, “I have always wanted to work for Otis Brazil. So when Columbia University began offering an Americas program, I decided to enroll and begin preparing myself for an international assignment.”

Courtney is a prime example of the “choosing your own adventure” at UTC.

With a background in physics and civil engineering, she joined United Technologies 14 years ago. Since then she has worked across the company in a variety of increasingly responsible positions.  She is convinced the Employee Scholar Program will take her to the next step of her career.

“One of the many things I admire about UTC is the investment they make in their employees. It’s been an amazing experience so far.”
