Executive MBAs Spend Day With Habitat for Humanity
Citizenship Day Welcomes New Class, Helps Area Residents
A group of 105 new Ross Executive MBA students took action-based leadership to heart this week when they scattered across an Ypsilanti, Mich., neighborhood to complete home-improvement projects for low-income families in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley.
It was all part of Citizenship Day, an orientation activity for new Executive MBA students that helps Ross students build community and teamwork while reinforcing the idea that business, and business leaders, can make a positive difference in the world.
“There is a great deal of opportunity available to executives in our program,” said Claire Hogikyan, Executive MBA program director. “We want them to keep in mind that there are many, many other people who don’t have those same opportunities. This is one small way we do that.”
It’s the same focus on positive leadership that permeates the Executive MBA experience and a Ross education.
