Smith’s Daylin Russo Among Class of 2022 Best & Brightest MBAs

Daylin Russo, representing the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business Full-Time MBA Program, is featured among the world’s 100 “Best & Brightest MBAs: Class of 2022,” by Poets & Quants, the digital news outlet dedicated to global coverage of business education.

Russo, with biomedical and chemical engineering degrees from Carnegie Mellon, told Poets & Quants he pursued a Maryland Smith MBA to foster his interest and skills in networking and leadership. “Beginning with my initial research into MBA programs, it was clear that Smith sincerely valued creating networks, both for those who are currently in the MBA program and after graduation,” he said. “The importance placed on fostering these connections to truly create a community of MBAs has been a core component of my MBA journey.”

As a Maryland Smith student, Russo served as Vice President of Student Affairs of the MBA Association. In that role, he “focused on encouraging mental health wellness and physical wellness by encouraging workshops and classes for his classmates,” said Assistant Dean of the Full-Time MBA Program Nicole Coomber. “He has created a safe space for students to address personal, academic, and career-related concerns.”

Russo, post-graduation, will transition from internship to full-time in the HR Leadership Development Program at Eaton Corporation in Asheville, North Carolina.
