THE ECONOMIST ANNOUNCES WINNER OF FIRST BRIGHTEST MINDS MBA SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST

 
Brightest Minds contest winner is awarded $25,000 scholarship to business school
 
(New York, NY) – Today Economist GMAT Tutor, a GMAT test preparation course from Which MBA? at The Economist Group, announced the winner of its $25,000 Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest at its annual spring business school fair.
 
Rishabh P. of India received the highest score on the Economist GMAT Tutor’s simulation test, beating 4,500 other contest entrants.  He then competed in a tie-breaker essay writing task with contest participants who also received the highest score, which he won. “I am thrilled beyond words on winning the first Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest. The opportunity is not only a great stimulus to one's preparation for GMAT, but also a huge encouragement in the entire MBA application process,” says Rishabh. He has one year to apply and gain acceptance to one of the participating business schools in order to receive the scholarship.
 
“Not only are we happy to help fund a promising student’s MBA journey, but we successfully fostered connections between several thousand people who entered the contest and our eighteen business school sponsors,” said Adam Ingberman, Head of Which MBA? at The Economist Group. He added that the level of competition and engagement exceeded his expectations. The next Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest launches later this summer.
 
Rishabh can apply the scholarship towards tuition at any of the Brightest Minds business school partners, pending his acceptance:
