Class of 2018

I am a dual degree MBA/MPP student (with Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy). Prior to Ross, I worked in the non-profit sector for 5 years, most recently at a community health center in Chicago. Through these experiences, I saw that many organizations struggle with similar challenges, including funding dependency, inefficient allocation of resources, and lack of scalability. I chose to pursue an MBA/MPP to develop the skills to better help organizations overcome these issues and create long-term sustainable impact. With a strong emphasis on positive business and social impact, Ross closely aligned with what I was looking for in a community. Since coming to Michigan, Ross has continued to exceed my expectations and I am excited for the many more opportunities that lie ahead!
