Budget and Finance Lead

Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation

Academic Innovation is on the forefront of the future of learning and provides learning experiences that are global and lifelong. I chose to work at AI because I want to advance my career and skill set and be apart of the wave of the future. Someday, I would love to see the online courses offered globally and made accessible to everyone no matter which country they are in!

Current Roles/Previous Experience

The Budget and Finance Lead works closely with all members of Academic Innovation to build and manage financial budget models at the office, program and project levels. An essential task of this role is the monthly review of statement activity in comparison to the budget, and the subsequent discussion of variances with key stakeholders within AI. Hongyun worked at the University of Michigan Library Deans Finance Office as a senior budget analyst prior to this position, and has over eleven and a half years of experience working in the finance field.
