Introducing Simon’s Full-Time MBA Class of 2017

Simon Orientation is still in full swing – we welcomed our incoming MS Class of 2016 on Monday, and yesterday we welcomed our MBA Class of 2017! It was this time last year that we started working with these students as they explored B-school opportunities, and we are thrilled that they have chosen Simon for their journey.

This year’s incoming class is an impressive cohort. I can spend a great deal of time (and blog space!) highlighting these students’ accomplishments and range of diversity, but here is a quick overview of their background:
