The Strategy team has weekly meetings with Humana’s CEO and management team and frequently presents strategy updates to the Board of Directors. Day to day activities of the Post-MBA leader will include overseeing a team of analysts to pull together industry analysis, high level financial modeling, and qualitative analysis and synthesis of strategic options to create executive level deliverables and recommendations for Humana’s senior leaders and Board.

Humana's Corporate Development team is a high-profile, high impact group that works with Humana's top leaders to identify and execute against inorganic opportunities to accelerate our strategy.  In Corporate Development, you will help source transformational M&A opportunities and execute the deal process from discovery to due diligence to signing.  The Corporate Development team frequently meets with management teams of potential M&A targets and regularly works with Humana’s CEO and CFO to evaluate and discuss strategic M&A opportunities.
