Poets and Quants For Undergrads 2020 Best and Brightest: Jenna Scheffert, University of Wisconsin School of Business
“Ambitious small-town girl with an inexorable appetite for adventure, seeking global residency status via the Big Apple.”
Where will you be working after graduation? I will be returning to work as a full-time investment banking analyst in Rothchild & Co’s Global Advisory division in New York City.
What did you enjoy most about your business school? The Wisconsin School of Business fosters a place of comfort and a feeling of home while studying on a campus with 40,000 other students. Whether it’s faculty members, professors, or students, everyone supports the collaborative environment and strives to help each other by their own definition of success. Coming into college as one of 100 direct admit business students, I felt a personalized touch with my education right away. Professors knew me past my name, advisors supported my ambitious perspective, and upperclassman encouraged me to get involved. Each semester that passes, I’m welcomed back to friendly foundations and a supportive community that has grown and adapted at the same time as me.
