Ilitch School announces 25 Under 25 winners for 2021


Students in Wayne State’s Mike Ilitch School of Business are some of the brightest and hardest-working around, both in and out of the classroom. To celebrate our all-stars in academics, leadership, professional development and campus/community service, Dean Robert Forsythe created the 25 Under 25 recognition program – and the results are in!

The 2021 winners are:

Business students were invited to apply beginning in December, and a panel of executive judges from AGC Automotive Americas, BDO, Comerica Bank, Deloitte, DENSO International America, Detroit Pistons, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Fifth Third Bank, GM, Google, J.P. Morgan and Rock Central reviewed and ranked the submissions.

While we are unable to celebrate in person right now, a VIP reception will be scheduled to honor awardees when it is safe and appropriate to do so. In the meantime, the 2021 awardees’ names will be added to the 25 Under 25 website and they will receive an award to commemorate their achievement.
