A phone lying on a dark wood table with the BBU podcast playing onscreen.

The Ross School of Business Dean, Sharon Matusik, joined MBA students David Amorim and Johnathan Brown for an exclusive interview on the Michigan Ross Business Beyond Usual podcast.

This was Dean Matusik’s first appearance on the student-led podcast since her arrival at the school in August 2022. On this episode, Dean Matusik and the hosts delve into many compelling topics, from what differentiates Ross from other top business schools to her vision for Ross and hopes for the school’s future. The dean also talked about her career path prior to getting into higher education, and her background as a first-generation student.

The Business Beyond Usual podcast, started in 2016, is hosted by a rotating roster of Ross Full-Time MBA students that aim to tackle burning issues in the business education world — from life in Ann Arbor to the reality of recruiting.

Student hosts produce full episodes twice a month during the fall and winter, and shorter “Ross Weekly” mini-episodes highlighting student organizations and events throughout the year. The goal of the podcast is to share a slice of what life is like for MBA students at Ross with people around the world that may be considering attending Michigan Ross for a graduate degree.

You can listen to BBU #709 - Meet the Dean: Sitting Down With Sharon Matusik on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, and most other podcast players.
