Muhammad Ahmed receives 2020 Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key Award
The Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business has announced Muhammad Ahmed as the 2020 recipient of the Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key Award, which is presented to the graduating business student with the highest cumulative GPA. Ahmed earned his degree in management from the Ilitch School in May 2020.
Ahmed made the dean’s list every semester in his four years at the Ilitch School and graduated with a 3.99 GPA. His merit scholarships included the Raymond Genick Scholarship, the Lawrence and Charlynne Braun Endowed Scholarship, the WSU Presidential Scholarship and the WSU Scholars Day Award.
In addition to his consistently outstanding work in the classroom, Ahmed excelled outside academics as well during his time at the Ilitch School. He was a member of the inaugural class of Mike Ilitch School of Business student ambassadors and was the religious services director for the WSU Muslim Students Association. He was also active in the broader community, serving as a youth director for the Islamic Association of Michigan and a clinical research assistant for Karmanos Cancer Institute.
In recognition of his overall achievements in “academics, leadership, professional development and campus/community service,” Ahmed was selected as a member of the Ilitch School’s prestigious 25 Under 25 award for 2020.
Ahmed is now enrolled as a first-year medical student at Wayne State’s School of Medicine. To gain experience in the field, he worked as a medical scribe at Detroit Medical Center’s Harper University Hospital for two years. He also worked as a medical assistant for the HUDA Clinic, a Detroit facility that offers free healthcare services to the public, and as a patient observation aide for Beaumont Health.
Due to public health concerns, Ahmed received his award by mail over the summer. He will be celebrated in person at a later date (TBD) at the next Ilitch School Annual Recognition and Awards Program.
