Hello everyone — Welcome back to Poets&Quants’ Must Reads, a quick and digestible roundup of top business school news, sponsored by CentreCourt, P&Q’s virtual admissions events.
I’m your host, Kristy Bleizeffer, and I’ll highlight the most important P&Q stories you may have missed, but shouldn’t.
So let’s go.
#1: Top 40-Under-40 Business School Teachers of 2022
First, we are excited to present the list of this year’s Top 40-Under-40 MBA Teachers, featured right now on our homepage. This is the 10th edition of our annual recognition, and through 400 winners in total, our goal remains unchanged: to identify and celebrate the most talented young professors currently teaching in MBA programs around the world.
This year’s list includes teachers from 33 different schools, including 14 international schools, as well as 18 outstanding women, the most we’ve ever had. We received more than 2,240 applications and assessed 140 individual professors on their teaching accolades, research impact, and breadth and quality of their applications.
We congratulate each man and woman honored this year and invite you to read their individual profiles on poetsandquants.com.
Please keep an eye out for our 2023 nomination period which will open late this fall. We will announce the opening on PoetsandQuants.com as well as on our various newsletters and social media platforms.
#2: Meet the MBA Class of 2023
In the news, you can use the category, check out Jeff Schmitt’s latest crop of “MBA Class Of” profiles. These profiles offer a deeper look at top MBA programs from the perspective of current students. You’ll learn about the main features of the program while getting admissions advice for the students themselves.
If you’re still looking for a program that’s right for you, these Class Of collections are a good place to start. This month, Jeff presents University of Minnesota Carlson, Carnegie Mellon Tepper, Washington Foster, and other great schools. Start by searching for “Class of 2023” in our search bar.
#3: Success Stories: Elite MBA Application Information
For more admissions advice, this story by editor Marc Ethier compiles advice from students who landed offers from some of the world’s most prestigious MBA programs.
To Poets&Quantswe publish many success stories of business school applicants who have achieved the vaunted “triple admission” to Harvard, Wharton, and Stanford, as well as other elite B schools.
Along with some world-class advice, Marc’s collection also offers a wave of inspiration for aspiring MBAs. You can find the story by searching “Success Stories” on our homepage.
#4: Wharton Freshmen Beat MBA Crowd in Major Venture Capital Competition
Finally, if you missed the story of that Wharton School freshman who just won the school’s first startup challenge, take a few minutes to read it now.
While most of his high school classmates were still trying to figure out where their interests lay, Aravind Krishnan was in the process of genetically engineering a plant to create a cheaper and greener way to test drinking water for toxins, the medical equipment and vaccines. The company he founded, ToxiSense, might just save a prehistoric crab and the coastal ecosystem that depends on it.
Read about Krishnan’s journey, as well as the journey of the three Wharton undergraduates he recruited into his company in our MBA news tab on poetsandquants.com.
Well that’s it. four more P&Q stories we think you shouldn’t miss. You can let us know which stories we should have mentioned but didn’t address in the comments.
Before leaving, I want to alert all school seekers of the upcoming CentreCourt MBA Festival events. These events connect prospective students with admissions experts, alumni, and career development teams at the top MBA programs in the country — and the world.
Our next series, MBA Voices, takes place June 7-8, and you can register for free on our events tab on Poets&Quants.com.
Thank you for your attention. Once again I’m Kristy Bleizeffer with Poets&Quants, and you can join me next week, right here, for a recap of what’s important in the world of business education. Stay informed!
