Alumnus named one of the best in his field

A School of Business alumnus is listed among the best buyside analysts in the world. Andrew Carlson earned a Master of Business Administration degree from the school in 2011 and now works for Whetstone Capital Advisors in Mission Woods, Kan.

In less than two years with the company, he caught the attention of SumZero, an online networking community of hedge fund, mutual fund and private equity professionals. SumZero recently released a list of the top 14 buyside analysts.

“I was surprised and honored by the peer recognition associated with being selected for the SumZero list,” said Carlson, whose average peer rating is 9.66 out of 10, the highest on the list.

Among the elite company in which Carlson now finds himself are analysts from the business schools of Stanford, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania.
