Batchimeg first joined the Faculty as Budget Officer in the Financial Affairs Office in September 2014.

In her new role as Senior Financial Officer, Batchimeg will supervise the Deanery Budget and Finance team. She will also be involved in the strategic planning of the Faculty’s Budget Agreement, and in the constant improvement of compliance standards, budget processes, policies and procedures. Among her many tasks, she will provide guidance and leadership with respect to financial matters and special projects, will participate in the continued delivery of budget-related training to the Administrative Excellence Centres and will continue to represent the interests of the Faculty internally and externally.

An MBA graduate from Azusa Pacific University, California, Batchimeg was the recipient of the Award of Excellence to the Most Outstanding Graduate in the program.
