D’Amore-McKim seniors recognized by Poets&Quants as ‘best and brightest’


D’Amore-McKim School of Business seniors Miranda Beggin and Jeremy Goldstein, both DMSB’17, were recently named to the 2017 Poets&Quants ‘Best and Brightest’ undergraduate business majors list, an honor for 100 graduating seniors celebrating their impact as students, volunteers, mentors and advocates in their programs.

Beggin will graduate in May with a degree in business administration and political science and a minor in global social entrepreneurship. She has been involved in many activities and leadership roles during her time at D’Amore-McKim including the International Relations Council, IDEA, Northeastern’s Student-Led Venture Accelerator and the NU Social Enterprise Student Association, among many others. She completed co-ops at Amazon in Seattle, WA, Endeavor Partners in Cambridge, MA, and Oasis500 in Amman, Jordan. She chronicled her time in Jordan during an Instagram takeover for D’Amore-McKim .  

Beggin was also recently awarded the Critical Language Scholarship and an Outstanding Co-op Award.

When asked what her advice is for students also interested in a business-related degree, Beggin said, “Diversify your study path as much as you can. Branch out, pursue international experiences, talk to people, and don’t merely focus on what the textbooks say. Get as much experience as you can while you study.”

Goldstein will graduate in May with a marketing and management information systems degree. He had four experiential earning opportunities during his undergraduate career including time at QuickBase in Cambridge, MA, VMware in Palo Alto, California, Lyft and Jet.com, both in Boston MA. During his time at Northeastern, he was involved in IDEA, NUMA, and peer mentoring. He was also named to the 2016 Forbes 30 under 30 Scholar list.

“Jeremy Goldstein is invaluable for the example he set to his classmates and to the younger students he successfully mentored as an upperclassman in a variety of leadership roles.  He is self-driven, ethical and ambitious and his constant search for, and acquisition of industry knowledge was a valuable asset to the employers he worked for as well as to his professors,” said Goldstein’s co-op advisor, Christina Roberts.  “I have no doubt that he will be a business leader and pioneer himself in the future – setting trends that are emulated by his colleagues and studied in classrooms across the country.”

The Poets&Quants 2017 “Best and Brightest” list is compiled based on feedback from faculty and administrators at 49 leading business schools.
