Michigan Ross Students Discuss The Challenges of Working, Being Married, and Getting an MBA


In the second episode of the recently launched Michigan Ross student podcast, Working for the Weekend, host Mawa Mustafa, MBA ‘20, gathers together fellow Part-Time MBA students who are all dealing with a unique challenge among students who are working full-time jobs while pursuing an MBA: They’re also married. 

In the podcast, the group of students discuss the “delicate balancing act that a part-time MBA entails” when trying to harmonize working life, school life, and married life.
