Class of 2024

In my undergraduate studies, I was on the pre-med track with aspirations of becoming a doctor. However, in addition to school, I found myself working at a venture capital firm called True Equity. During my time with them, I discovered a newfound interest in business. This inspired me to diverge from my initial plan and pursue a graduate degree in this area. I was looking for a program that could help me obtain a strong foundation in business that I could combine with my previous background as a STEM major. When I came across the one-year Master of Management program, not only did the Ross reputation stand out to me, but the program itself, as it is ranked No. 1 in the country. After learning more about the program through current students and faculty, I knew it was a perfect fit for me. Since becoming a student, the Master of Management program has been a source of personal growth through strengthening my business knowledge, developing my leadership skills, and expanding my network. Undoubtedly, my most cherished part of the program thus far has been the incredible people I've had the pleasure of meeting in MM; all with diverse backgrounds and experiences, who come together to foster a vibrant community.
