The recipients of several annual awards given out to MBA students each year—the Siebel Scholars, the McKinsey Awards, and the McGowan Award—were announced Oct. 15 at the first MBA lunch of the semester. Senior Associate Dean Jake Cohen and MBA program director Maura Herson presented the awards.

McKinsey Award winners are chosen based on community leadership and academic accomplishment. Segev praised the MBA Class of 2016. “It’s outstanding to see the amount of leadership, the drive, and academic excellence that this class and this school possess … it’s challenging because at the end of the day we can only pick a few for the award.”
