MBA News: Andrew Yang and Neil Blumenthal Named to Fast Company’s List of Most Creative

Andrew Yang and Neil Blumenthal, friends of mbaMission, were both named to Fast Company’s list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business 2012. Andrew Yang, former CEO of mbaMission’s partner GMAT firm, Manhattan GMAT, is now the founder of Venture for America (VFA)—an organization dedicated to the rebirth of American industry and enhanced American competitiveness by connecting top college talent to start-ups. (mbaMission Founder Jeremy Shinewald is a board member of VFA.) Meanwhile, Neil Blumenthal is the founder of Warby Parker, an online glasses retailer with a social mission—we featured Neil’s partner, Dave Gilboa, in our “What I Learned at…” series a few months ago.

The creative list is quite impressive—Andrew and Neil are in good company with Shaquille O’Neal, Wes Anderson and Aziz Ansari.
