Class of 2017

I am a part of the MBA TRACK Program at General Motors under the Global Purchasing and Supply Chain (GPSC) Organization. My first, and current, rotation is in the Value Chain Engineering Group as its Business Planner. My six years of automotive experience also include three years at Ford Motor Company in Purchasing Program Management, and three years in a Commodity Purchasing role at a Tier 1 Supplier (Flex-N-Gate). I decided to pursue my MBA to develop my skills and understanding of business to accelerate my career. The Ross Weekend MBA program provided a high-quality education, exposed me to an elite network of faculty, students, and industry leaders, increased my leadership ability, and ultimately helped to make me a valued asset to my employer. In addition, the sense of community and Wolverine pride has truly made this one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I would recommend Ross to anyone considering getting their MBA. Go Blue!
