Civil engineering master’s student Trevor Clark has been recognized as one of the nation’s most outstanding business school students by the website Poets&Quants.
Clark will graduate this summer with two master’s degrees: one in civil engineering and one in business administration.
The website, which writes about business schools, received nominations from 62 graduate business programs across the globe. Clark is one of three Scheller College of Business students included in the site’s “Best and Brightest MBAs” list.
The list highlights graduating students who have succeeded academically, gotten involved in activities outside the classroom, and demonstrated personal excellence, according to Poets&Quants.
Clark serves as a lieutenant in the United States Coast Guard and will return to duty after he graduates. He told Poets&Quants he’ll work as a project manager in the civil engineering unit in Oakland, California.
“I am most proud that I was able to earn two full graduate degrees in two years at Georgia Tech, one in a technical field (M.S. Civil Engineering – Geotechnical Engineering) and one in a management field (the MBA),” Clark told the website. “It was a requirement of the Coast Guard program for which I was selected to attain both degrees, but Georgia Tech did not have a dedicated dual-degree program at the time I started the program. (They have since launched one.) I was not 100 percent confident it was even possible to finish both degrees when I walked in on day one, but it still felt like the right school for me.”
