Aside from putting on events and connecting our members, part of the Center for Operational Excellence’s mission is to support the great work our faculty and students are doing here in the Fisher College of Business. A big way we do that each year is in giving out scholarships, and we’re proud to recognize a group of students we selected.
COE this year awarded five students $500 each through the Logistics Scholarship Fund. The first-year MBAs to receive the honor are: Jennifer Bartlette, Arshita Raju, Joe Robinson, Jeremy Mink and Bradley Stuetzer.
Awarded the $2,500 William L. Berry scholarship was Piyush Sinha. This honor, endowed by the emeritus professor, is designated each year to a student expected to have an impact in the operations world. With his strong experience in the field and a reputation as a high achiever, Sinha was a natural choice for the honor this year.

As the icing on the cake, some of our honored students are putting in work as interns at some COE member companies. Bartlette is headed this summer to Delaware industrial packager Greif Inc., while Stuetzer is headed to Greif’s Argentina office. Other members set to welcome our students: Rolls-Royce Energy, where Sinha will be interning; and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., where Robinson is heading. Congratulations as well to Raju, set for an internship at the Ohio auditor’s office, and Mink, who is heading to Petsmart.
Congratulations to all of these students, and best of luck as you continue your journey at Fisher.
