Danny Plooster, ’17 MHA-MBA, wanted to gain leadership experience during his time at the Carlson School. He’s graduating with a resume that’s full of top posts with student organizations, volunteer engagements, and professional and academic accolades. He describes himself as a “passionate, optimistic healthcare leader who solves complex problems and is committed to social good.”

That sort of dedication and involvement earned Plooster inclusion on Poets & Quants’ third annual Best & Brightest MBAs list, which includes 100 of the world’s top graduates from the Class of 2017.

Plooster, a native of Baraboo, Wisconsin, will join The Chartis Group, a healthcare consulting firm in Chicago, as a senior consultant after graduation.
