Meet The 53 MBA Women Running Student Clubs at Michigan Ross

Share

Strong and smart women are no stranger to Ross — women from our programs have a history of making a difference, from being a founding sponsor of the Forté Foundation, to being named among the most powerful women in banking, technology, marketing, venture capital, and more.

The women leading MBA clubs this year at Michigan Ross hail from some of the biggest, most impactful companies in the world (Bain, Girls Who Code, Apple, Nielsen, Procter & Gamble, L’Oreal, Google, Amazon, and more), and they stand to make a big impression with their leadership.

Here are the 53 Michigan Ross MBA Women leading student clubs this year:

“MBW is a special club that is near and dear to our hearts. During our hectic MBA1 year, the organization became a safe space for the two of us, where we felt challenged yet energized to pursue our goals. Because of this, we felt indebted to continue building on what previous leaders of MBW have done in fostering a supportive and inclusive community where all women feel inspired, empowered, and celebrated. We're humbled to have been selected to co-lead the club with our extraordinary Board!”
