ALUMNI WELCOME

Dear School of Management Alumni:

One of our goals in the School of Management at the University of Michigan-Flint is to enhance the value of your degree.  Our rankings and recognitions build recognition for both current students and alumni.  For example, the most recent U.S. News and World Report ranks our part-time MBA program as number two in the state of Michigan.  This is a signal to alumni, students, and potential employers that we have excellent educational opportunities and that our alumni are successful.  The Princeton Review, CEO Magazine, and Business Week magazine have also recognized our programs as having national standing.  This is something to be proud of and we want our alumni to recognize that we are committed to a path of continuous improvement.

Sincerely,

Scott D. Johnson, Ph.D.
Dean

2019 Winter Alumni Career Panel

The School of Management hosted an Alumni Career Panel on February 20, 2019. A variety of eight School of Management alumni who graduated with either graduate or undergraduate degrees from 2014-2017 came to the university to talk about life after college to undergraduate pre-business students. The alumni speakers gave their opinions on how to manage stress or work-life balance, how to bounce back from a failure, what companies look for in hiring young talent, the importance of internships during college, and the perks of their professions in the business field they work in.  Thank you to our wonderful alumni for speaking to our current students and for giving them the opportunity to ask questions about life after college. We will have more opportunities for alumni panelists in the fall 2019 semester. If you are interested in being a future panelist, please connect with the School of Management LinkedIn page where we post updates on needing alumni speakers for events!
