This Week: We’re Welcoming 116 New Executive MBA Students, And They Couldn’t Be More Excited


The 116 new Executive MBA students who started at Michigan Ross this week hail from an impressively diverse set of industries, companies, and backgrounds.

From tech to healthcare, and from entertainment to consulting, these students bring unique perspectives and work styles to classroom discussions and group activities like ExecMAP in December.

It’s a defining characteristic of a Michigan Ross Executive MBA.

But those experiences and backgrounds aren’t the only thing that’s diverse among our new class of students. They also have different motivations and expectations about what’s to come as they embark on a Ross education.

The students are joining a network of accomplished executives who’ve come to Ross for their MBAs. They’ll make new contacts from around the globe. When they graduate, they’ll be leaving the program not only with a best-in-class degree, but a deeper, more strategic understanding of business. Many earn a promotion and an average pay increase of 26 percent. Not bad for a 21-month investment.

We asked our newest group of student what they are excited about, and this week, we’ll be sharing some of their responses on the Michigan Ross Instagram in a series of Instagram Stories posted throughout the week.

You can follow Michigan Ross on Instagram to get the stories delivered directly to your feed. Stories on Instagram only last 24 hours, so be sure to check back each day. Stories will also be archived in this blog post at a later date.
