For Veselina Angelova ’18 (MBA), being in a business school community that values and empowers women was critical. Simon checked those boxes, evidenced by prominent female representation in club leadership and its support system for women students. In fact, Simon was No. 13 in the US and No. 21 in the world in Financial Times’ ranking of top MBAs for women.

In Vessy’s own words: “We build communities like no other school out there. We really support our female leaders like no one else and we do give them a lot of love and understanding and make them feel wanted, and engaged, and included.”
