Two seniors from Syracuse University‘s Martin J. Whitman School of Management, Linqing Lily Li and Samuel Hirsch, were selected by Poets & Quants for Undergrads to be highlighted in its annual “best & brightest undergraduate business majors” feature. Each year the publication seeks to honor 100 of the most accomplished seniors from top business schools.
Hirsch is a finance and accounting major at the Whitman School who has participated in numerous clubs and activities on campus including the Orange Value Fund, where he currently serves as a senior analyst and helps manage a portfolio of nearly $5 million, and the SU Investment Club, where he was president.
Li is a triple major in accounting, finance and information management and technology. She has worked as a risk advisory intern at Ernst & Young and as a financial management intern at MassMutual Financial Group. She is involved with on-campus clubs and organizations, such as Beta Alpha Psi, Delta Sigma Pi and National Associate of Black Accountants. Both students noted in their responses to Poets & Quants for Undergrads that they deeply value the community and faculty at the Whitman School.
“One thing that I enjoyed the most about my business school was that even though we were one of many specialized schools on campus, we had a tight-knit community within Whitman that had its own culture,” said Hirsch. “I also enjoy how Whitman gives you so many opportunities to excel not only in the classroom but through extracurricular activities as well. I think this is an important part of a wholesome learning experience.”
This is the second year students from the Whitman School have been featured on the list. Last year, Catherine Cummings ’18 and Justin Harris ’18, were selected for the honor.
