Jeremy Miller ‘98

I had something of a unique path since I left UNC in 1998. I joined JP Morgan’s investment banking group in New York, in part to learn the financial side of the world. It was quite the experience, during which I was bitten by the business bug.
I spent three years at JP Morgan before leaving for business school at Northwestern in 2001, where I got my MBA in 2003. Since then, I’ve spent my career in management consulting, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions advisory work. Though you may be surprised, the knowledge and lessons I learned from my Sociology classes has always been of great value to me professionally and personally. The ability to observe, analyze, and write about complex group and system dynamics have been huge assets to me. And in a funny way, my Sociology degree and skill sets have always distinguished me from the crowd.
I’m forever thankful to Kathie Harris, Rosa Haritos (my thesis reviewer), Dick Cramer and the department as a whole for helping me craft a successful and stimulating career, even if it’s not the one I would have been able to articulate back in 1998.
I live in a town called Lisle, about 30 miles west of Chicago, with my wife of 10 years, my 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter.
