Bryan D. Wright, a current Columbia College MBA student in his last session, has been accepted as a finalist in the prestigious Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program. Wright will graduate at the end of March.
According to the program’s website, “The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program was established by Executive Order in 1977 to attract to the Federal service outstanding men and women from a variety of academic disciplines and career paths, who have a clear interest in, and commitment to, excellence in the leadership and management of public policies and programs. By drawing graduate students from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, the PMF Program provides a continuing source of trained men and women to meet the future challenges of public service.” 
Wright was accepted into this program from a pool of nearly 9,000 highly qualified students of which 600 have been accepted as finalists.
