Sohni Bhandutia, Co-President (Newark)
Sohni is a full-time MBA student at Rutgers Business School, concentrating in Marketing & Strategy. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain Management & Marketing Sciences from RBS as well, and upon graduation went on to pursue an Analyst role at Verizon. While managing various projects there, she discovered her strong ability to think strategically and creatively. She decided to return to business school to sharpen those skills in order to pursue a career in Brand Management. Sohni is very enthusiastic about women’s leadership initiatives. Despite the fact that women represent one of the most powerful economic entities in the world, they are still a largely underutilized resource. As co-President, Sohni’s goal is to help shift this stigma by cultivating her female counterparts into confident and resolute business leaders for tomorrow.
