There's no typical MBA student, Poets & Quants reminds us in the opening of their 2017 "MBAs to Watch" list.
"Indeed, you’d be hard-pressed to find a 'typical' MBA profile among this year’s 'MBAs To Watch'—an eclectic and ambitious bunch who come from seemingly every background imaginable. These top students range from M&A lawyers and government officials to pizza bloggers and movie makers."
Of the recent MBA graduates highlighted for their accomplishments, two of our very own Tuckies made the list: Emma He T'17 and Monique Alves T'17, who are both far from typical.
Queens native Monique, who now works in retail marketing at Microsoft Corp., was a mentor to first-year students during her second year at Tuck. She was also a resource for Forte, MLT, and E-ship focused prospective applicants. Learn more about Monique.
Prior to Tuck, Emma attended the University of Hong Kong and was a valuation analyst for Deutsche Bank. Now with McKinsey, Emma says she fell in love with Tuck the moment she learned about it in Hong Kong, when she could feel the energy and warmth of Tuck alumni. "The diversity of my classmates is like a precious diamond with many colors," she says. "I continue to see the many shades of reflection in this community. They help me grow in my journey of self-discovery." Learn more about Emma.
Congratulations, Emma and Monique! Well deserved.
