Scheller Graduate Selected as one of the World’s "Best and Brightest" MBAs

Kevin Boldt has been selected for Poets & Quants’ list of the 100 “best and brightest” MBAs  chosen from 59 business schools across the globe. This honor recognizes decorated MBAs from the Class of 2017 who reflect the best of their schools in terms of academic prowess, extracurricular achievements, innate intangibles, and potential.

“Kevin has been an outstanding contributor to his MBA class and the Scheller College of Business MBA program,” said Kevin Stacia, corporate relations manager, Jones MBA Career Center. “Whether it is meeting with prospective students at our welcome receptions, reaching out to veterans who are considering the program, attending a special celebration hosted by our international students, or organizing our annual student and alumni Crawfish Boil, Kevin consistently makes himself available to support the program.”

Boldt, of Carrollton, Georgia, earned his MBA this spring and will return to the Regular Army after graduation. He will initially attend the 10-month Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and then will work as the Executive Officer or Operations Officer in an Infantry Battalion with 600 - 800 soldiers. Before Tech, Boldt earned a B.A. in international relations from Stanford University. He describes himself as “an experienced problem solver with global outlook who relishes leadership challenges and connecting with people.”

Boldt’s professional career goals include bridging the civil-military divide. He details, “Spending the past two years in business school has provided me with the opportunity to reflect on similarities and differences between military organizations and those found in the private sector. From a management perspective, I think there are greater opportunities to share and apply best practices. I will also continue to devote time and energy to assisting veterans with their transition to civilian life.”

He continued, “By sharing my service experience, I hope to help better inform our fellow citizens and potentially encourage a select few to answer the call to public service.”

Kevin Boldt is an awesome MBA student.

He served on the MBA Alumni Committee and worked on events like the Annual MBA Crawfish Boil and MBA Homecoming Kickoff in Atlanta, as well as alumni events in the U.S. and abroad. Boldt has also been active in the Scheller College and Georgia Tech veterans’ communities and led multiple care package drives, in which they sent many boxes to soldiers serving overseas.
