I recently wrote about my experience visiting the University of Michigan Museum of Art with nearly 100 other first-year BBA students, faculty, and staff at Michigan Ross for an online publication called Her Campus. This was the second year this event was organized for students in BA 100. I would love to provide a glimpse into this insightful event.

Michigan Ross is more than a business school. It is a community that extends past labels of full-time, part-time, evening, or alumni. We are a team that supports each other and tries to help everyone on their unique path to success.

When I started my Executive MBA, I was not sure how much more it would enhance my professional development. However, I have been surprised and pleased to discover that my EMBA has had an immeasurable impact on both my hard and soft skills.

During my recently completed MBA summer internship at LinkedIn, I asked CEO Jeff Weiner how MBA’s should invest in themselves today to become effective leaders when entering the business world of tomorrow. This was his response.

Incoming first-year Weekend MBA students recently had the chance to partner with Amazon on a top-secret project as part of the Business + Impact Challenge, powered by the Sanger Leadership Center. The two-day event, which took place in May, asked students to develop and present solutions to a real, relevant business challenge faced by Amazon.

When I look back at all of my study abroad photos from Sweden now, I think about how different my life would be if I had not been brave enough to try something new and uncommon.

I knew there was something different about Michigan Ross alumni from the moment I was accepted to the Ross School of Business. Having just graduated with my Ross MBA, I am certain I will be just as passionate as those who have come before me.

Effective altruism (EA) is a philosophy and international social movement that uses evidence and rigorous research to determine the most effective ways to identify and solve these kinds of problems. And, I’m happy to say, it recently found its way into Michigan Ross.

Over the past few years I have consulted numerous MBAs looking to start tech careers or shift into different roles or companies. I wanted to pass on some thoughts that seemed to resonate across my conversations. I also wanted to share my own job search story as I hope it is helpful to those of you still on the trail.

I am graduating from the Ross Weekend MBA program in a few weeks and I’m happy to report that I made it through in one piece with some of the best experiences, memories, and friendships of my life. A question that I get all the time is: “How do you juggle everything?” I wish there was an easy answer, but there isn’t.

I knew a goal of mine during the Michigan Ross Master of Management was to be involved in aiding the missions of nonprofit organizations in the community where I live. The Board Fellowship Program appeared to be, and has been, the perfect opportunity.

Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of helping organize the second annual University of Michigan Science Olympiad tournament, an event that I had helped to plan since last September.

To help me focus my search during the MAP selection process, I decided to use the excel output of projects Ross provides to create a custom view in Tableau — a handy skill I have from my previous career as a financial analyst at The Home Depot.

Coming into the Master of Accounting program at Michigan Ross , I thought I was in for a whole year of learning about crunching numbers and...well, nothing else. After 5 months of some of the most eye-opening courses of my college career, I have been proven wrong.

Have you ever spoken to someone you knew nothing about but within seconds found something in common that kept you talking for hours? I hope that this has happened to you at least once; it is one of life’s great joys.

One of my primary goals coming into business school was to get hands-on experience applying design thinking and innovation strategies to solve problems. For those unfamiliar with design thinking (or user-centered design), it’s a process for creative problem solving that keeps the end-user of a product or service front and center as problems are defined and solutions are considered.

Three months ago I landed a job at my dream company, Anheuser-Busch InBev . Being a Master of Supply Chain Management student straight out of undergrad, I would have never imagined I’d be offered a leadership role responsible for one of the world’s largest beer productions at such an early age. But, this job did not come easy.

Peer coaches help first-year students foster a great relationship between an experienced Ross student and a first-year Ross student. Freshmen in BA 100 learn that they can come to their coach with questions about anything — from questions related to academics to questions about social life to questions about sporting events at Michigan and everything in between.

On my final drive from Chicago to Ann Arbor, as luck would have it, I hit a mattress on I-94. First thought through my head? I really hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. After calming down, making my husband drive an hour to meet me, calling a tow truck, and figuring out what to do with a mangle mess of coils and fabric — it got stuck underneath the car — I was finally on my way to becoming an Ann Arbor “townie.”

Since I started school (and maintained a part-time work schedule), Erik and I have had to be more intentional to carve out time. We’re both in class or at work, meetings, and events for 12 to 14 hours per day, so we’ve had to find better ways to meal prep, grocery shop, clean (on occasion), and keep up with life.

When we received the acceptance call from Michigan Ross, it caused a 360-degree about-face in our lives. We were planning our wedding. We had both just been promoted at work. And now: We have a big decision to make that comes with many mixed feelings.

When Dayna got into Ross, it was a bittersweet moment for me. I was incredibly proud of my partner. She’d earned her way into her top choice program, and getting her MBA from Ross was the best next step in her career. At the same time, I was incredibly terrified. I was building my own career in New York City, and relocating wasn’t an option for me personally or professionally.
