Joseph Esposito, a senior studying Finance and Legal Studies at Miami Herbert Business School, has been recognized by Poets & Quants in their 2020 list of "Best & Brightest Business Majors." The annual list spotlights standout undergraduate students from leading business schools in the US and beyond.

Esposito, a native of New Jersey, made a positive impact for the business learning experience of others throughout his four years at Miami Herbert.

“Joe is a student but he’s already a total professional," said Mark Shapiro, Business Law Professor and Director of Undergraduate Career Resources at Miami Herbert. "He’s smart but practical, confident but cooperative, and fully engaged. He’s a terrific communicator, with strong public speaking skills and careful critical thinking."

"I consider myself fortunate to have been able to watch the four-year development of someone who is bound to be tremendously successful in whatever he chooses to do.”

Outside the classroom, his notable extracurricular activities and leadership roles include Business School Team Leader Program president, Pi Kappa Alpha president and Tamid Investment and Consulting Club member.

For newly admitted or prospective undergraduate business students, he shares advice from his own experience.

"I came into college with a set path in mind and that changed very quickly," said Esposito. "I found that by taking many business courses, I was able to narrow my focus. To add to that, aside from learning from classes alone, I learned from my clubs and internships."

"Learning what you dislike is just as essential as finding what you like. Be open-minded and take in as much information as possible. Learn all aspects of the business world and after that, determine your path."

After graduation, Esposito will join Aladdin (BlackRock) as a client services analyst.
