The current Oxford MBA student was named in a list by Poets and Quants.
Daniel Bu, a current Saïd Business School MBA student, has been listed in Poets and Quants ‘100 Best & Brightest MBAs: Class of 2022’.
Daniel, who describes himself as a ‘Focused and adventurous future surgeon working to enable and scale surgical innovation in emerging markets’, is one of the Oxford Pershing Square scholars.
In response to being listed, Daniel said:
‘I am grateful to receive this type of recognition. This news reflects the potential that surgical innovation holds in emerging markets. Doing this kind of work is important as an MBA student and as a future surgeon.’
Daniel has always been passionate about surgical innovation within the context of developing economies.
Last summer, he interned at SEREN, a social enterprise focused on delivering and scaling up cancer diagnostics in East Africa.
He explains the challenge to increase the prevalence of surgery in emerging markets:
‘On the one hand, you have the familiar problem of a lack of resources and capacity, that decreases access to surgery around the world. On the other, there is a groundswell of support for these efforts and the teams of people who are working on this problem.’
Daniel is the chair of the Oxford Health Policy and Financing Group, having previously been the Vice-Chair of the American Medical Association’s MSS Committee on Economics and Quality in Medicine.
Abrar Chaudhury, Faculty Advisor on the Oxford 1+1 MBA Programme said:
‘Daniel Bu is a very engaging leader and a popular member of the 2022 cohort. He brings positive energy to the group and his diverse experience of working in health innovation, surgery, and management makes him stand out and enrich the experience of the cohort.’
Poets and Quants has honoured 100 full-time MBA graduates at the top business schools worldwide every year since 2015. These high potentials are considered the voice of their peers and embody the spirit of their institutions.
