Benjamin Richer

Class of 2022

"Originally from Washington, DC and Northern Virginia, I first came to the University of Michigan to study engineering and theatre production. Following my undergraduate degree, I received a Masters of Engineering from Cornell University, then returned to Michigan to work at Ford Motor Company. After a brief rotation program, I settled into my current role as a product analyst at Ford Autonomous Vehicles, LLC, Ford's self-driving vehicle business unit. In this role, I work at the intersection of engineering and business, and corporate and entrepreneurial work. 

I came to the Weekend MBA program at Michigan because I wanted to broaden my business and leadership skill sets. I knew this program would allow me to learn from some of the finest professors in the field, connect to an incredible alumni base, and still be able to continue my career without interruption. It only took the first weekend of classes to be able to start applying my new education in my job. I look forward to further synergies between school and work, and continuing to build deep connections with my classmates."
