Three students on the Cambridge MBA programme at Cambridge Judge Business School are named ‘MBAs to watch’ and a fourth student is named among the MBA ‘Best & Brightest’.
Three Cambridge MBA students from around the world were included this year in the “MBAs to Watch” list compiled by business-school publication Poets & Quants.
The publication this week announced the inclusion of Angela Khakali (MBA 2021) of Toronto, Canada, and Nairobi, Kenya; Jorge Velasco Azoños (MBA 2021) of Mexico City, Mexico; and Bob Winslow (MBA 2021) of Northumberland, UK.
Angela Khakali was described in the Poets & Quants article by Philip Stiles, Associate Professor in Corporate Governance at Cambridge Judge, as a “high performer who provides great insights and engagement with a strongly collaborative spirit… Her focus on impact is inspiring and she has achieved this with her strategic work in the public sector and now she is moving towards making a big difference in innovation and investor roles in the private sector.”
Jorge Velasco Azoños was described by Alan Jagolinzer, Professor of Financial Accounting, as someone who is “innately curious, genuinely authentic, and cares about the societal implications of business practice… His empathy, emotional intelligence, and global-citizen mindset will allow him to amplify his impact, leveraging our Cambridge MBA curriculum.”
Bob Winslow was described by Stella Pachidi, Assistant Professor in Information Systems, as “the perfect example of the charismatic student that makes teaching such a rewarding experience! He is intelligent, analytical, and a deep thinker. On top of that, he is kind but also funny, modest yet confident and determined, and above all, thirsty for knowledge.”
In May, Poets & Quants named Luvina Weilu Yao (MBA 2021) of Guangzhou, China, to its annual MBA “Best & Brightest” list. She commented on the diversity of her cohort and the “very unique experience to have in-class discussions and projects with artists, doctors, Olympic champions, engineers, consultants, and so on.”
