MBA1 Managing Editor: Aindrilla (Andy) Mukherjee
Andy is an MBA1 from India, specializing in Finance and Sustainability – is what her LinkedIn bio would read. In reality, when she is not staring at Excel models, she can be found reading a book from her TBR list (while adding 10 more to it), clicking photos of anything and everything (can click your LinkedIn DPs in exchange for an iced coffee) and spamming everyone with memes or cat gifs (often both).
VP of Finance: Andrew Mei
Andrew is a Langone student specializing in Finance and Strategy. He also completed his undergraduate at NYU and returned for an MBA because of his unwavering Violet pride.
