Congratulations to Upasana Barot ’18 for being among the 100 honorees in Poets & Quants’ Best & Brightest Business Majors of 2021. To compile the list, Poets & Quants invited each of the top 50 undergraduate business schools to nominate two students based on their academic excellence, leadership, personal character, innate potential and overall impact on the program.
Upasana is currently majoring in accounting at the College of William & Mary, where she developed a formal peer mentorship program to better support freshmen and sophomores. “My peers and I created a 6-module curriculum that covered career preparatory basics,” Barot explained. “Our program matched upperclassmen with internship experience to students seeking to follow in similar career footsteps. After testing and revising the curriculum over the span of two semesters, this program has now become the official mentorship program of W&M’s business school. Moreover, it always makes my day when mentees reach out about their positive experience with the program.” To continue reading the full interview, please visit poetsandquantsforundergrads.com.
