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.”
