Antonella Godoy is the latest recipient of the scholarship offered by the Master of Science in Operations Management program. The award is based on academic achievement and financial need.

Godoy moved to Fordyce, Arkansas, and quickly decided to pursue her M.S. in operations management. Starting off in an administrative position, she quickly moved up in the company where she was working and found that operations management was an area she really enjoyed. Family and friends recommended the U of A.

Godoy earned a Bachelor of Science in petroleum engineering from the University of Comahue in Patagonia, Argentina, in 2019. During her undergraduate studies, she received several scholarships, and she is grateful that she was awarded this opportunity to complete her graduate studies, she said.

Godoy has a position waiting for her upon graduation in the Amazon Pathways program. This five-year program is an Operations Leadership Development Program for Worldwide Operations at Amazon. The goal of Pathways is to prepare and develop master's-level graduates in engineering, supply chain, logistics or similar disciplines into Amazon's next general managers and directors. She also states that being bilingual will give her an edge up in this new role since it deals with global operations.

"I decided to focus my elective classes in project management and lean six sigma, trying to balance my engineering background with more management skills that will be needed in this new role. Data analysis was also on the list since I will be handling large amounts of data," she said.

The MSOM Scholarship was first awarded in 2018 and is awarded each fall and spring semester. It is funded by generous donations from alumni, staff and friends.
