Michigan's PhD program in Management and Organizations was remarkable. The program cultivated the importance of developing "big ideas" from day one, and I feel fortunate that I had a chance to study with such incredible faculty and peers. I often found myself having some of the most insightful and meaningful conversations in both seminars and in the hallways where I was exposed to a range of interdisciplinary perspectives from people who had high standards and encouraged me to tackle unexplored and exciting phenomena. The curiosity and community of the doctoral program is something that I will never forget.
