Unlike many of my fellow classmates, business school was not a long-standing goal of mine and I made the decision to apply shortly before coming to Ross. I work for Ford Motor Company in marketing where many successful leaders rise quickly without advanced degrees, but as a woman working in a male-dominated industry, I needed to take every opportunity to learn from others and gain experience in other areas of business.
What drew me to Ross was the action-based learning curriculum and the far-reaching Go Blue Network built into the program. The Weekend MBA program allows me to continue developing my professional career while earning a top-tier business school education and working alongside some of the most talented and diverse business professionals in the country. In the end, I am so glad to have made the decision to join the Ross family and am confident it will serve me well throughout the rest of my career.
