Class of 2018

After joining a leading Telco company, as a Marketing Manager, I realized how important it was for me to pursue an MBA from a top university. Not only would an MBA help me understand how the inner working of the company, but it would also provide me with the tools to move up in my field. Earning an MBA was always something I knew I wanted to do, but I wasn’t ready to put my career on hold or walk away from my job. For me, the weekend MBA at Ross was the perfect blend of all the key factors I was looking for in a program. The part time structure allows me to stay at my job and commute into Ann Arbor (from the west coast), offers all the same opportunities of a full time program, has a very strong curriculum with real life application such as MAP and allows you to finish in 2 years. The best part of the program is that you are with the same people your entire two years so you become very close to classmates. The sense of camaraderie and pride you feel with your class and as a Wolverine is something that can’t be beat. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any career or school questions.
