The San Francisco Business Times recently published their annual “40 Under 40 Class of 2015.” Choosing the 40 most influential talented young professionals who are driving the Bay Area economy proved to be challenging as hundreds of nominations were submitted for consideration and the competition was fierce. However, two Claremont McKenna alumni Nate Gross, M.D. ’06 and Gavin Teo ’03 made the list.
A rewarding and for some, nerve-racking day of presentations and persuasion, marked the 7th Annual Robert Day School Case Competition held March 6th in the Bauer Center.
The takeaway for the winning team was a $5,000 prize but everyone who competed was able to hone a vital skill set that could be crucial in the years ahead in both career and life situations.
In January, the Financial Economics Institute and the Robert Day Scholars Program sponsored the 12th annual New York City Networking Trip (see students, pictured above). In the final week of winter break, nine juniors and five sophomores traveled to New York City to learn about the wide array of opportunities available in the financial services industry. The trip offered a chance for students to connect with various alumni in both professional and casual settings.
The Hult Prize is a global competition that challenges students from around the globe to solve the world’s most pressing issues. This year’s challenge is to build sustainable and scalable social enterprises to address early childhood education.
On December 6th, CMC students stepped up to the challenge. 50 Claremont McKenna students pitched their ideas for a social enterprise that would make early childhood education available to all children around the world, however only four students advanced to the Hult Prize Regional Finals in San Francisco, March 13-14.
