After a one-day delay caused by Hurricane Irene, our semester is off to an excellent start. Thirteen new students entered the program this year, joining a similar number from last year. They hail from seven states and Israel and three were born in the FSU. Nine of the students are in the joint MBA Program, one in the MPP, and 2 in the MA program with NEJS. Among the incoming students are two winners of Wexner fellowships and we also have one student in our selective 5 year BA-MA program, open to NEJS majors at Brandeis. [see student profiles]
