Poets & Quants ‘best and brightest MBAs’ includes host of Consortium alumni

Best and brightest MBAs includes “leaders, volunteers and problem-solvers, who started conversations and inspired change.”

Poets & Quants highlighted its annual list of the “Best and Brightest MBAs” in the class of 2016 from business schools across the country. The list included a number of Consortium alumni — students who started their MBA journey at the 48th annual Orientation Program & Career Forum in Austin, Texas, in 2014, and who are now walking out with MBAs and career opportunities ahead of them.

“Grabbing attention won’t be an issue for Poets & Quants’ Best and Brightest MBAs. In fact, you could describe this year’s recipients as the rock stars of their own classes,” the online magazine wrote in its introduction. “Amid never-ending demands, these second years were the ones who were always available to organize events, tutor peers, and recruit future students. They were leaders, volunteers and problem-solvers, who started conversations, challenged conventions, rallied peers, and inspired change.”

Poets & Quants highlighted 100 students emerging from their studies this spring. Here are the Consortium-affiliated honorees from the class of 2016. Did we miss anyone? Let us know at and we’ll update this post.
