ichigan’s MBA program

develops a special breed of results-producing leaders. The high-

impact Michigan approach combines traditional delivery of

cutting-edge knowledge with progressive, intensive management devel-

opment. As a result, Michigan sets the standard among

business schools for developing students’ effectiveness and lead-

ership, a crucial distinction for success in a changing, demanding

global economy. We do it through innovative, outside-the-classroom

professional development. We do it through an unsurpassed

array of active partnerships with businesses around the world.

We do it by continuing our tradition of delivering top-notch knowledge

to students, drawing on our special blend of leading-edge research in

every business function, extensive connections to business prac-

tice, and a rigorous commitment to teaching quality. It all

happens in a close-knit, human-scale and richly diverse community.

Companies have affirmed the Michigan MBA’s special appeal.

Graduates benefit from it every day: they are the leaders the

times demand.


KNOWLEDGE

I

n today’s cross-functional busi-

ness world, results-producing

leadership depends on first-rate

knowledge of every business disci-

pline. Success also frequently

depends on in-depth knowledge of

a particular field or function.

Michigan delivers both, thanks to

a tradition of across-the-board

academic excellence - not narrow

specialization. Michigan is one of

the premier centers of business-

oriented research. Accordingly, we count our faculty members among the

world’s leading experts in every field. Why does it matter? First, Michigan

MBAs get cutting-edge knowledge in every area that comprises the core

curriculum. Second, elective courses for developing advanced expertise are in

ample supply and are of high quality in every field. Michigan ensures all that

knowledge is delivered effectively to MBAs through a rigorous commitment to

teaching quality. And, Michigan MBAs have access to one of the world’s great

universities, with opportunities for learning in a wide range of academic and

professional fields.


THE CORE AND

CUSTOMIZATION

Each year, about 430 men and women are admitted to the

Michigan MBA program. Each entering class is divided

into sections comprised of about 70 students. During

the initial year of the program, these 70 people form a cohort:

attending the same core classes, working on group projects,

encouraging each other, debating each other, learning from

each other’s diverse backgrounds, and providing each other

with a stable intellectual context and a social network.

Interaction within sections, and the relationships forged during

the first year, generate the camaraderie that is a hallmark of

the Michigan MBA experience.

Our Most Important Asset

The Michigan faculty delivers leading-edge knowledge across

the board. Through classroom sessions and in-company learning

projects, you will encounter respected researchers,

vigorous scholars, successful consultants, and gifted, dedicated

teachers. These are people who enjoy teaching and do it

extremely well, people who make themselves accessible for

after-class consulting and devote long hours as advisors and as

guides to student teams. The Michigan faculty works at the

intersection of scholarship and professional practice. The

course of study is a balanced one. Classes constantly develop

both your knowledge – the concepts, the models, the formulas

– and your professional ability to apply that knowledge

effectively.

3

In the Classroom...and Out

At Michigan, knowledge delivery and leadership development

are tightly integrated. We offer constant opportunities

to develop your leadership qualities. The “classroom”

routinely extends to applied problem-solving and collaborative

projects, as well as soaking up valuable knowledge, tools

and ideas. By complementing fourteen-week courses with

seven-week intensives, our nimble program allows us to keep

current with innovative classes geared to recent research and

late-breaking business issues. This not only gives you access

to specialized faculty expertise, but also greater choice and

flexibility in course scheduling.

With a rich diversity of career backgrounds, ethnicities,

personal perspectives and nationalities represented, our

student body is central to what makes Michigan an unsurpassed

environment for learning, development and honing

the abilities, perspective and judgment of a standout leader.

Core courses provide solid preparation in quantitative

methods, managerial and financial accounting, business

economics, finance, information technology, corporate

strategy, international business, marketing, operations

management and organizational behavior. The core curriculum,

which is detailed on pages 7 and 8, comprises 311 / 2 of

the 60 credit hours required in the MBA program. The core

provides a strong base of knowledge for advanced business

studies and is carefully coordinated to arm graduates with

the key knowledge, tools and habits of mind to take business

challenges and succeed.

Customizing Your Program

The Michigan MBA program’s built-in flexibility enables

you to select classes that fulfill personal needs and career

plans. Students have the option of focusing on a specific

area of business practice such as finance, strategy, marketing

and operations. Through some innovative programs, you

will also find exceptional opportunities to focus your studies

in entrepreneurship, e-business, manufacturing, corporate

environmental management and nonprofit and public

management. You may broaden your training by electing up

to 10 credit hours of graduate study in other units of the


University of Michigan. Possibilities include the Law School,

the School of Public Policy, the School of Social Work, and the

College of Engineering. For those with strong interests in other

areas, dual degree programs are offered in more than 20 fields.

Opportunities for Entrepreneurship

Michigan’s Samuel Zell-Robert H. Lurie Institute for

Entrepreneurial Studies is the hub of an extensive range of

opportunities to access the latest entrepreneurial thinking and

strategies. The $10-million Institute, created with a gift from

Samuel Zell and Ann Lurie, on behalf of Robert H. Lurie,

engages the active involvement of the nation’s most successful

entrepreneurs and offers an outstanding faculty composed of

academic researchers and practitioners in entrepreneurship.

More than 16 faculty members engage with students in the

School’s entrepreneurship programs. Through a carefully

constructed series of courses, designed around a New

Venture/Technology Transfer process model, students can

combine theoretical and in-company, experiential learning,

providing preparation for successful business start-up and

growth. Students interested in entrepreneurship work with actual

start-ups, and dozens have successfully launched their own firms.

Throughout their course of study, students may develop and evaluate

Entrepreneurial studies is one of the most popular

fields among business school students, and Michigan provides

students with the knowledge, experience and real-world

involvement necessary for emerging leaders in the field of

entrepreneurship.

Venture Capital

Those interested in venture capital financing may also apply to

participate in the Wolverine Venture Fund. In keeping with

Michigan’s signature style of combining excellent course work

with hands-on development, the Wolverine Venture Fund is

one of the world’s first VC funds run by business students. An

advisory board of eight faculty and Business School alumni

and 16 MBA students will participate in managing this multimillion

dollar fund. The fund’s participants seek, screen and

negotiate investments and develop significant experience in

these areas – and in working with VCs and entrepreneurs.

e-Business

For those with a penchant for high-technology, the Michigan

MBA also offers a wide range of courses in e-business.

Michigan has created project courses in which students can

develop e-business ideas, and presents an opportunity for

students to test out their ideas by incubating a start-up

company in the school’s e-lab. Michigan also offers courses

that teach the functional underpinnings of e-business; present

an overview of the competitive landscape in e-business infrastructure

industry; and help students understand the strategic

context for e-business, how to win business strategies in the

e-world, and understand the legal perspectives of e-business.

Rapidly changing and inherently cutting across functional

areas, e-business is a highly dynamic and evolving business

discipline. The e-business curriculum at Michigan combines

courses in Computer and Information Systems and

Entrepreneurial Studies with a full complement of courses in

Finance. Michigan also offers e-business courses in Law,

History and Communication, Marketing, Operations

Management, Organizational Behavior and Statistics.

Susan Ashford, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Michael and Susan

Jandernoa Professor of Business Administration

The eLab

For students itching to take the first steps in getting a business up

and running, or who need to experiment with ideas, the School’s

eLab is the place to set things in motion. The eLab acts as a business

incubator for students’ dotcom start-ups, providing them

with the resources – including office space, server space, developmental

tools and faculty advisors – to set up shop.

eLab businesses often start coming together in one of the

School’s business planning courses. The eLab offers computing

resources for both developing web-based business ideas as

well as putting them into full production. The eLab is also

used for faculty research and teaching, both of which bring

faculty and students together.

The Corporate Environmental Management Program

Executives and managers must be sensitive to the environmental

impact of their decisions and be able to launch sustainable

business strategies to gain a competitive advantage. As more

firms begin to understand this necessity – in managing both

their bottom line and the impact their operations have on the

environment – they will require the services of experts who

can develop and implement balanced strategies to achieve

their goals. At the same time, environmentalists need business

savvy to address the thorny economic issues that always

accompany environmental problems.

5

Recognizing the corporation’s changing role in society, the

Business School and the School of Natural Resources and

Environment offer the Corporate Environmental Management

Program (CEMP), which is part of the Erb Environmental

Institute. Equally appropriate for the private sector and

nonprofit organizations, this integrated three-year program

equips executives and managers with the skills and knowledge

they need to create environmentally and economically

sound organizations. Students become well versed in both

management and environmental science, thanks to a carefully

balanced curriculum and the active involvement of leading

companies and nonprofit organizations. Through elective

classes, lecture series, summer internships, and research

projects, students become skilled in the systems and strategic

thinking that is required to solve today’s most pressing environmental,

economic and social problems. The program leads

to both an MBA and an MS in Natural Resources and

Environment.

The Manufacturing Management Track:

Tauber Manufacturing Institute

Over the last decade, economic and technological changes of

global proportion have reshaped America’s manufacturing

sector. Successful firms require a special kind of leader—one

well versed both in a breadth of business disciplines and the

more technical aspects of a firm’s value chain.

As one of the leading manufacturing programs in the

country, the Tauber Manufacturing Institute (TMI) integrates

the strengths of the business School and Michigan’s College of

Engineering, in active partnership with industry, to create a

new standard of education for manufacturing leaders.

Focusing on a multidisciplinary experience with a practical

application, TMI prepares students for a fast track career in

the management and/or consulting arenas.

TMI’s industry partners represent a broad range of

Fortune 500 firms in the aerospace, automotive, chemical,

consulting, high-tech nd pharmaceutical fields. As top

employers have discovered, TMI graduates have a great deal

to offer: an exceptional academic background, extensive


professional experience, and the ability to integrate business

and engineering perspectives.

Degree options available through the Institute include:

MBA with Manufacturing Concentration (two years)

• Dual MBA/Master of Science in Engineering (2-21 / 2 years)

• Dual MBA/Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (2-21 / 2

years)

TMI’s programs include these important benefits for students:

• A rigorous business and engineering curriculum.

• A guaranteed, 14-week summer in-company consulting

project with other talented TMI teammates.

• Special integrated courses, intended specifically for TMI

students, including Integrated

program or pursuing a dual degree with either Public Policy or

The Business School’s offerings and partnerships with

work directly in the public and nonprofit sectors or who want a

deeper understanding of how to work effectively with institutions

in those fields. In addition to course work in the selected

school, the Center arranges special events, speakers and seminars;

offers specialized internship and career opportunity

information; and coordinates opportunities for project-based

field work with local nonprofit and public sector organizations.

Specialized Study / Dual Degrees

Michigan MBA students have access to the full depth and

breadth of one of the world’s great universities, with professional

schools and academic departments considered among

the best in an unusually wide range of fields. Students can tap

these resources directly by simply taking a class or two in an

area of interest or pursuing a full dual degree. Students interested

in dual degrees must apply to both the Business School

and the other school or college of interest.


THE CURRICULUM AT A GLANCE

In terms of basic organization, the Michigan MBA reflects a balance of flexibility and structure. Without

sacrificing the fundamentals of business theory and techniques, we provide students with ample opportunity

to pursue their professional interests and goals through a wide selection of electives. Seven-week

segments allow some students to place out of half-term core course segments, providing greater freedom

to shape their educational experience.

PROFESSIONAL

DEVELOPMENT

12

Michigan graduates are a

special breed, known for not just

being smart, but for being the lead-

ers who make things happen. It’s

things like the confidence and capa-

bility to leverage knowledge, to lead

and work highly effectively with

others, to think creatively and make

change happen, to have superior

judgment and make excellent deci-

sions – within and across functions,

on the ground in Shanghai or in the

board room in New York. The value

of these skills is timeless. Here at

Michigan, we are not just about management education. We are also about

management development. The Michigan MBA represents a new standard partly

due to its innovative, high-payoff professional development dimension: substan-

tive in-company learning, executive skills seminars, an intensive leadership

program, plus other applied learning and developmental opportunities.

Combined with our superb academics, it creates a pivotal Michigan edge.

It’s your first day as an MBA. At most business schools,

you could expect a pretty quiet time of it. Information

packets, a welcome from the dean. But it won’t happen

that way at Michigan. Here, your introduction to the MBA

world is a week-long Leadership Development Program.

Instead of shuffling through course packs, you’ll be involved

in team-building exercises and action projects. You’ll learn

what you need to become a highly effective leader, someone

who stands apart in the business world. You’ll partner with a

local nonprofit agency for a day. You’ll take part in hands-on

exercises designed to build your competencies within diverse

teams. And you’ll have an opportunity to relax and socialize

with faculty and future classmates. So put down your notebook,

roll up your sleeves, and get ready for orientation —

Michigan style.

Leadership Development Program

The Michigan Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a

wide-ranging, thought-provoking, career-enhancing experience.

In the company of faculty, CEOs, current students and

your new classmates, you’ll spend five days:

• Developing a global mindset by learning fundamental

skills and new ways of thinking for success in a multicultural,

internationalized context.

• Formulating a personal leadership agenda by developing a

set of goals and an action plan that combines personal and

professional aspirations.

13

• Working effectively in teams and leveraging team capabilities

for outstanding results.

• Leveraging diversity to broaden perspectives, enhance

team creativity, and improve problem solving.

• Practicing corporate citizenship by working at a homeless

shelter, a senior citizen apartment complex, an inner-city

school or an ecologically damaged natural area.

During this week-long program, you’ll also have time to

chart out your courses, get to know your section mates, learn

more about the many clubs and organizations at the Business

School and plan to get involved in activities for the coming year.

Executive Skills Program

Self-awareness. Communicating effectively. Networking.

Managing diversity. Influencing others. Leading teams.

Thinking creatively. Leveraging technology. Managing time.

Balancing your life.

These are all part of the skill set of the best business

leaders worldwide. According to research at Michigan and

elsewhere, they are also the factors that make the pivotal

difference in professional effectiveness, career advancement

and organizational success.

The University of Michigan Business School is in a

perfect position to take on the task of helping our MBAs

develop these key executive skills. In national surveys,

managers have given our Executive Education Program

straight A’s on every dimension of performance. So we

modeled our MBA workshops on Executive Education

seminars, customizing the content for MBAs and keeping the

interactive format, as well as the emphasis on measurable

improvement in specific skills.

The result is a constantly updated schedule of 2-4 hour

non-credit workshops, all taught by instructors regarded as

being among the best in their respective fields.

Multidisciplinary Action Project

Michigan’s Multidisciplinary Action Projects, MAP and

IMAP, are in-company learning experiences – a developmental

approach – invented by Michigan that integrate the

Business School and the business world, knowledge develop-


ment and professional development. MAP/IMAP are the

centerpiece of Michigan’s bold and innovative curriculum,

which is designed to develop advanced capabilities for

results-producing leadership, personal effectiveness and

adaptability. MAP projects take place domestically, while

IMAP projects occur in locations around the world.

MAP/IMAP is a central piece of our core curriculum, a

key way we act on our central philosophy that effective people

– and leaders – are a select subset of smart people. It is not a

superficial add-on or a side project but, rather, a 7-week, fully

engaging, full-time experience spent primarily inside one of

the businesses or other organiza-

Students work on these assignments

as part of diverse teams and ultimately present

findings and recommendations to faculty and host-organization

executives.

Michigan brings significant resources to bear to make

MAP/IMAP a multi-dimensional developmental experience,

one that yields sophisticated knowledge and skills of value in

any field or profession. Throughout MAP/IMAP, students

work with a cross-functional, six-member faculty team, which

provides expertise, advice and coaching.

MAP/IMAP is ambitious and very demanding. Learning

happens in real time – just as the nuances of applying new

knowledge and tools meet the realities of a working business

environment and the pressure to produce results. Fundamentally,

that’s what makes it so effective.

14

MAP is an excellent

venue for building

confidence, humility,

intuition, judgment…

and all the other value-added skills

a business leader must have.

Jane Dutton, William Russell Kelly Professor of Business Administration

and Professor of Organizational Behavior

MAP/IMAP continues to earn high marks as an educational

model perfectly matched to the demands of today’s

business world. Faculty benefit from the collaborative teaching

format. Students describe it as one of the most intense

learning experiences of their lives. Corporations use it as an

opportunity to thoroughly analyze a business challenge. And

corporate recruiters have referred to it as one of the best

things to come out of any business school in decades.

Experiential Learning Opportunities

Many Michigan students compound their experience-based

professional development through summer internship opportunities,

with project courses during the second year of the

MBA program and by actively participating in clubs and

organizations. The Domestic Corps and student-initiated and

student-organized conferences are two options for this kind

of further development. Advanced-level in-company learning

options outside the United States, such as those through the

William Davidson Institute, are outlined in the International

Opportunities section of this brochure.

The Domestic Corps

Corporate citizenship has long been a priority at Michigan.

As we say again and again to our students: with exceptional

privilege comes exceptional responsibility. Through the

Domestic Corps, we give students the opportunity to exercise

their skills in the dynamic and challenging venue of economically

distressed, culturally diverse areas of the United

States. Participating students offer organizational stability


and community impact to nonprofit organizations that might

not otherwise have access to such resources.

As a member of the Domestic Corps, you could spend

your summer working with inner-city agencies and churches

to generate desperately needed training programs and job

opportunities or with tribal leaders to create culture-appropriate

enterprises within the Navajo Nation. You might

develop a business plan for a branch of the United Way. Or

assist the Chippewa Tribe to create a sustainable economy.

You may also propose your own project and apply for funding

through the Michigan Internship Fund (MIF), a fund created

by Business School students. Whatever your project entails,

we can guarantee that you will find the experience exhilarating,

eye-opening, challenging and rewarding both personally

and professionally.

The Washington Campus Program

The Washington Campus was founded in 1978 in response to

the clear need for management education focused on the

relationship between business and the public policy process.

Each summer, the program offers an intensive course in

Washington, D.C., for graduate students either before or

during their internship. Participants have the opportunity to

interact with members of Congress, top executive agency officials,

well-known lobbyists, the press and other key

participants in government.

Student Initiatives: Conferences and Events

Students also gain hands-on experience through the wide

variety of clubs and organizations at the School. Many of

these clubs sponsor conferences or symposia, providing

students with opportunities for leadership in event management

and a particular interest area.

The Asia Business Conference enriches the community

by attracting top executives and government officials to the

School. Their annual conference hosts more than 25 speakers

and panelists who discuss topics of current importance to

business in Asia. Fully a third of the panelists travel from

Asia, representing firms in China, India, Indonesia, Japan

and Thailand.

Since 1993, Michigan Business Women have sponsored

a major women’s leadership event at the School annually,

15

featuring prominent women business leaders, panel discussions

and skill-building workshops.

The Michigan chapter of Net Impact, an international

network of emerging business leaders committed to using the

power of business to create a better world, sponsored that

organization’s annual conference in 1999. The conference

attracted more than 500 students from business schools

across the world for a weekend of keynote speakers, panel

discussions and social events.

Each Year Michigan’s Hispanic/Latino Business

Students Association sponsors a Latin America Business

Conference, which combines hot topics with food and wine

tasting events and a Brazilian carnival. Attendees discuss

INTERNATIONAL

OPPORTUNITIES

16

As a global organization

itself, Michigan leads the way in

providing students with a global

perspective. We operate on five

continents. We run an executive

education program that draws

managers from around the world.

We house the world headquarters of

the leading institute on transitional

economies, the William Davidson

Institute. We maintain an interna-

tional network of partnerships with

companies and other organizations

to enrich and operationalize MBAs’

knowledge. Our faculty has long cultivated a truly global view of business,

and faculty participation in our international ventures adds to their insight

into business practice around the world. All that plus an internationalized

curriculum, special courses, the expertise of the University’s many regional

studies centers, and the range of nationalities in our classrooms combine to

give Michigan an edge in educating for cross-cultural commerce.


GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE,

GLOBAL EXPERIENCE

Every Michigan MBA will graduate into a business

environment comprised of customers, competitors,

suppliers and partners from all parts of the globe.

We regard international business competency as an integral

part of the MBA tool kit, and back that up with an unsurpassed

range of resources and experiential learning

opportunities.

Development of MBAs’ grounding in the international

aspects of business happens in a variety of ways, starting with

a core course on the world economy and running throughout

the curriculum in the form of international cases and concepts.

And we offer a full complement of international business

courses to facilitate the development of specialized knowledge.

We draw on a University recognized as the very best in Asian

studies, and with other highly regarded area studies covering

much of the globe. But we go even further, with extensive incountry

learning and developmental opportunities.

International In-Company Learning

As on other fronts, in the area of international business

Michigan goes well beyond the required minimum. Our

students are not limited to a series of meetings with overseas

executives to develop their cross-cultural understanding.

Instead, Michigan MBAs get beyond the superficial through

carefully crafted, significant project work.

17

Michigan MBAs have numerous opportunities for direct,

on-site experience and learning around the world – things

like developing supplier relationships for a company in

Shanghai, working on an incubator start-up in Tel-Aviv, sizing

up international partnerships for a London-based multinational

or working on an American company’s South African

market-entry strategy. More than 200 Michigan MBAs take

advantage of these kinds of opportunities each year, and their

work spans more than 30 countries. It’s a powerful way to

develop global business knowledge and competence, as well

as high-impact advanced professional development applicable

to any kind of career. In addition to IMAP opportunities

(described in the Professional Development section),

Michigan offers a number of ways to leverage its strength

around the globe. Following is a run-down of the key programs

that provide those opportunities.

William Davidson Institute Business Assistance

Projects

The William Davidson Institute is a nonprofit, independent

educational institute dedicated to developing and disseminating

expertise on issues affecting firms in transition and

emerging economies. Since 1993, the Business Assistance

Program has provided project-based assistance to firms operating

in Asia, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe

and Russia. In cooperation with managers from local and

multinational corporations, teams of Michigan MBA students

spend three months in-country working with a Davidson

Institute corporate partner analyzing key strategic business

issues and making recommendations for improvement.

Participating students and faculty gain an inside perspective

on the issues faced by companies doing business in these

volatile and competitive markets. Projects have ranged from

a market entry analysis for a large multinational corporation

to a proposal for reorganization of the distribution network for

a local manufacturing enterprise. The Institute has

completed more than 70 projects with more than 40 partner

companies in 13 different countries.

IMAP and the Global Projects Course (see previous

opportunities are available through the William Davidson

Institute, the Center for International Business Education,

the Southeast Asia Business Program, and the Japan

Technology Management Program. In addition, all the major

business languages of Asia are taught through the advanced

level in various University departments.

A Diverse International Community

It is not only the faculty who bring international experience

into the classroom, and into the community. International

students comprise approximately 30% of the MBA class,

with more than 35 countries represented. Most of the

students come to the program with two or more years of work

experience, and in many cases their employers sponsor their

graduate studies. As a result, they offer much information

and insight to their fellow MBA students into the day-to-day

workings of businesses around the world.

Michigan supports many clubs and organizations that

raise awareness of international issues and ethnicity. The

International Business Club, the Hispanic/Latino Business

Students Association, the Indian Subcontinent Business

19

Association and the Asia Business

Association bring a focus on

regional ethnicities to the School

and offer venues for careerenhancing

and social events

throughout the year. These clubs

sponsor informal get-togethers as

well as conferences and seminars

that bring expertise on a range of

international business issues to

Other Business School and

University organizations keep a

stream of business, government

and academic leaders from around

the world coming to campus. The

William Davidson Institute, for

example, sponsors an ongoing

seminar series on key issues

related to emerging markets.

YOUR CAREER

DEVELOPMENT

20

Michigan is one of the most

heavily recruited business school

campuses in the world. A diverse

range of organizations recruit our

graduates, which is one thing that

makes Michigan a dynamic envi-

ronment for both exploring career

options and finding the right fit.

These organizations value

Michigan for changing with the

times, and value our graduates for

the potent integrated knowledge,

the ability to solve problems and

produce results, and the skill to

lead others to do the same. So graduating with a Michigan MBA provides a

strong leg up. Still, deciding on a career and pursuing opportunities demands

careful thought, preparation and serious effort. Not surprisingly, Michigan has

been recognized by students and recruiters for operating one of the most effec-

tive business school career development offices. Michigan’s Office of Career

Development is there to help every step of the way, with a carefully developed

set of resources and personalized services.


PARTNERS IN THE JOB

SEARCH

We know that the career search process can be an

exciting challenge for even the most confident, qualified

MBA student. Choosing a career path. Exploring

summer internships. Identifying preferred employers. Writing

persuasive cover letters and high-impact resumes. Polishing

interview skills. Arranging fly-backs. Negotiating favorable

terms. There’s a lot to think about and a lot to do, which is

why we have developed a set of integrated resources to help

you every step of the way.

Exploring Options, Getting Ready

Some MBA students know exactly where they want to go.

Others look forward to exploring options. Either way,

Michigan’s Office of Career Development (OCD) is a valuable

and experienced partner. Each fall, OCD conducts a

comprehensive workshop series covering how to explore

career options and the job search process in general. OCD’s

core workshops include resume writing, interviewing,

networking and the off-campus job search. They also offer

programs and services such as self-assessment for determining

career fit and panels of executives from various

industries. These workshops and programs equip students

with knowledge and resources for both deciding on a career

and for the imminent arrival of hundreds of recruiters looking

to fill summer internship and permanent positions.

Throughout your two years, OCD offers detailed workshops

and one-on-one counseling.

21

Workshops and Personal Services

Workshops for first-year students focus on the fundamentals:

self-assessment, industry overviews, resume and cover letter

preparation, interview training, off-campus job search strategies

and videotaped mock interviews. OCD’s professional

staff reviews each MBA student’s resume and works individually

with students on interview skills.

The job search swings into high gear as second-year

students integrate their course work, previous work experience,

MAP/IMAP and summer internship into the package

that propels them to the next level on their career path.

Advanced workshops and one-on-one sessions include

updating resumes and interview strategies to effectively

reflect the knowledge, skills and experience accumulated

during the MBA program.

Resources

What backs up all these services? What’s available to you

when you leave the workshops? How do you find out about

job opportunities? Here’s a run-down of the staff and infrastructure

that support you.

• OCD Staff Consultants: Professional staff consultants are

available to help you work through issues ranging from,

“Where am I going?” to, “How do I get there?” OCD’s staff

also runs the workshops that help answer these questions,

works with students on resumes and interview skills and is

available for counseling sessions.

• Peer Counselors: Specially trained second-year MBAs are

available as peer advisors on a daily basis. They’ve had firsthand

internship experience and are an excellent source of

advice on resume and cover-letter writing, interviewing techniques,

networking and alumni contacts.

• Specialized Workshops: OCD offers special sessions for

international students and for the many MBAs planning to

change career paths. For students who are not American citizens,

identifying and pursuing career opportunities

sometimes requires special strategies.

• Career Strategy Groups: These groups are designed to assist

students pursuing less traditional career paths. They serve

as a good source for networking as well as troubleshooting

on how to best conduct an effective search and yield results.


The OCD Career Center

OCD operates two facilities within the Business School’s

group of buildings. A suite of interview rooms, which

recruiters use when they come to campus, is located across

the hall from OCD’s administrative offices in Davidson Hall.

The OCD Career Center is housed in the School’s Kresge

Library, which is accessible via an internal walkway but is

removed from the buzz of on-campus interviewing. The Career

Center is staffed full-time. Here’s what you’ll find there:

• Counseling Rooms: the Center includes five counseling

rooms where students meet with staff career consultants and

peer counselors. Each room is equipped for videotaped mock

interviews.

• Corporate Files: OCD has cultivated relationships with

hundreds of companies, which constantly update the materials

available to students. The files include annual reports,

recruiting brochures, financial performance information and

noteworthy articles about companies

nity database and networking system, and is a fundamental

tool for Michigan students’ job searches. M-Track is webbased

and may be accessed either within the Business

School or remotely.

M-Track is constantly updated with hundreds of job postings

sent by organizations targeting University of Michigan

Business School students. Its on-line records include recruiting

history, job descriptions, desired experience and skills,

company presentations and other on-campus events, interview

schedules and recruiting contacts. M-Track is an

integrated information system, and provides instant access to

company web sites. The system includes postings from

companies that recruit both on-campus and off.

M-Track is also a powerful networking tool. It allows you

to search by industry, company or other topics. A search will

yield a list of recruiting companies in your area of interest

and links to company-specific information, related oncampus

events and workshops, meetings of student clubs and

lists of students and alumni corresponding to your search

command. Once you find, for example, a student who worked

or interned at a company you’re interested in, M-Track allows

you to instantly send an e-mail message to him or her.

On- and Off-Campus Recruiting

About 300 organizations – representing extraordinary industry

and geographical diversity – recruit MBAs on campus


each year, making Michigan one of the two or three most

heavily recruited business school campuses. Michigan is

repeatedly cited on the short lists of recruiters from every

key functional area – an across-the-board showing that is

rare among business schools.

In addition to all the services it provides for students,

OCD markets the School to prospective employers and

assists organizations interested in hiring Michigan MBAs.

OCD coordinates more than 9,000 individual MBA interviews

each year.

Most on-campus recruiters make formal presentations to

students, which include company background and discussion

of specific career opportunities. Most also hold informal

receptions and on-campus office hours. Many showcase their

companies with events like dinners or tailgate parties.

Interviews with these organizations are secured through

either an invitation or a process in which MBAs use M-Track

to bid for interviews. Recruiters are required to provide open

slots for bidding along with invitation-only slots. Beyond oncampus

recruiting, many more organizations recruit remotely

by sending job postings for M-Track, using OCD’s online

resume service or by reviewing the books of MBA resumes

that OCD compiles and sends to firms.

Beyond all that, there are still other paths for finding the

job that’s right for you. While investment banking and high

technology are heavily represented in on-campus recruiting,

the School holds annual networking events on Wall Street

and the West Coast. These events are concentrated, remote

versions of the on-campus recruiting process, which add to

the opportunities in these fields. Michigan also participates

in several multiple-school recruiting forums, especially

forums attended by recruiters from outside the United States.

For students who want it, OCD also provides special workshops

and personal assistance for targeting companies or

organizations that do not proactively recruit Michigan MBAs.

Alumni

There are at least two great strengths of the 33,000-strong

Michigan alumni network: First, Michigan graduates are

well-represented in an extraordinary range of industries and

23

locations, a function of the diversity of interests in our

student body and the diversity of recruiting activity. Second,

the cooperative culture that is so much a part of the School

extends to alumni in the business world, and alumni tend to

be eager to assist students and one another.

Many of the recruiters who come to campus are themselves

Michigan alumni. But student access to the alumni

network goes well beyond that. “Global Blue” is a student-run

they get here, it becomes apparent

there is a lot to like. The Business

School is a close-knit community

within one of the world’s great

universities, with first-rate learning

facilities, including state-of-the-art

library and computer resources. Not

to mention the camaraderie of a

diverse, high-powered group of students and faculty. It is a high-involvement

atmosphere where students are active and valued partners in a process of

continuous improvement. There’s also the University of Michigan: a veritable

academic powerhouse offering a wide array of expertise and more than twenty

libraries. Then there’s Ann Arbor itself, one of the world’s great university towns.

Charming, quirky, cosmopolitan, brimming with cultural activities, it’s a city

that has claimed a permanent space in the hearts of many MBA graduates. And

it won’t take you long to discover why.


A HIGH-PERFORMANCE

COMMUNITY

Michigan offers an extraordinary environment for MBA

students. On one hand, the Business School is its own

community tucked into a corner of the University of

Michigan campus. Michigan’s MBA program is one of the smaller

of the top business schools, enrolling about 430 students each

year, and each class is divided into 70-member sections.

People know each other. And your fellow students are

remarkable people to know: a rich mix of races, cultures, nationalities,

and experiences – a diversity that, coupled with the shared

traits of talent and high aspirations, produces an inspirational

vitality and enriches learning inside and outside the classroom.

Michigan is a place where human-scale interaction among

students, faculty, staff and corporate visitors is a fact of

everyday life.

On the other hand, at Michigan you are part of a larger

community – with access to the dramatic depth and breadth

of resources only available from one of the world’s major universities.

And, of course, the community extends to virtually every part

of the world.

It’s a rare combination, and another factor that makes earning

an MBA at Michigan a unique and powerful experience.

Life at Michigan

So you’ve read the stats, the surveys and the articles. Maybe

you’ve even talked with graduates. You know the faculty is first

rate. The facilities are outstanding. The curriculum is ahead of

the curve.

25

But there’s still those nagging questions in the back of

your mind. What is it really like at Michigan? What happens

on Monday morning? Or Friday afternoon? Are the MBA

students hyper-competitive? Is it strictly a nose-to-the-grindstone

culture?

Michigan graduates are remarkably unified in their

appraisal of the School from a personal and social point of

view. Again and again, you hear the same words and phrases

as they describe their former classmates: competitive but

never “cut throat”…cooperative… friendly… helpful… impressive…stimulating….

Many graduates insist Michigan’s reputation for camaraderie

– as opposed to competition – was the deciding factor in

their choice of a business school.

scheduled. “Free Fridays” are a

long-standing Michigan tradition. With no courses on your

agenda, you’ll have the opportunity to confer on team projects,

meet with club committees, attend special events or catch up

on research.

On any given day, you can also expect to spend a fair

share of time attending recruiter presentations and career

development workshops, refining your resume and cover letter

and discussing job search strategies with staff members in

the Office of Career Development. You may want to take

advantage of the Executive Skills workshops presented

during the year. You may be scheduled for a meeting at your


MAP client site. Or you may have an interview set up. You could

spend your lunch hour discussing the latest business trends with

an executive from Citibank or Intel or Procter & Gamble. You

A High-Involvement

Community

Students are part of Michigan’s

cherished process of innovation.

The School encourages student

involvement, reflecting Michigan’s

philosophy that MBAs must be

activists and take initiative in orga-

nizations. MBAs frequently create new student-run programs

that become a permanent part of the landscape. At the same

time, students bring new ideas to the Deans, faculty and staff.

Michigan’s culture is such that an e-mail to a senior staff

member could prompt a new School initiative. There is a

highly active Student Government Association (SGA), whose

representatives – along with student club presidents – form a

Dean’s Council that regularly exchanges ideas and State-of-the-

School assessments regularly with the Dean.

The School’s 75th Anniversary Challenge and the M-Trek

program are supreme examples of community initiatives that

have woven their way into Michigan’s fabric. In 1999-2000,

the School celebrated its 75th anniversary with a School-wide

26

Legacy Gift Challenge. The Challenge created an environment

where students, faculty, staff, alumni and corporate partners

harnessed ideas to improve the across-the-board excellence of

the School. In this highly energized environment, members of

the Business School community pledged themselves to implementing

more than 50 substantial improvements, initiatives or

new ways of thinking. The effort gave birth to physical plant

improvements such as classroom renovations, a new exterior

courtyard and Wyly Hall; curriculum initiatives such as evaluating

the core curriculum and enriching the depth and breadth

of electives; technology expansions such as hardwiring more

classrooms and expanding our wireless network; community

enhancements such as new scholarship and internship funds;

and mentorship programs that connect students with elementary

kids in the community. The bottom line: together, we make

a positive impact on the School for many years to come.

M-Trek, another community initiative, is a unique program

that helps you begin building community even before you

arrive on campus. Completely student-organized and led,

these outdoor challenge trips for incoming MBA students

range from hiking to canoeing to white water rafting to extreme

sports such as desert biking. The trips allow students of all

interests and skill levels to begin working as teams, getting to

know one another and experiencing the personality that is

uniquely Michigan.

And, there are other institutionalized student input and

feedback loops. For example, the Deans participate in SGA’s

town hall-style stakeholder meetings with students several

times a year. An ongoing series of Dean’s luncheons produce

student input in a more intimate setting. And Michigan

measures MBA satisfaction with its programs and services

using a sophisticated methodology developed at the School’s

National Quality Research Center (NQRC) – a version of

NQRC’s highly praised methodology for measuring citizens’

satisfaction with economic output in the U.S. and in several

other countries.

Student Organizations

Whether it’s arranging a case skills workshop with McKinsey

& Company or bringing a Samsung executive to campus to

hold forth on strategy or bringing Latino music to the student


lounge, Michigan’s student organizations know how to make

things happen. They provide an excellent venue for getting to

know classmates, exchanging job-search insights and strategies

and making valuable corporate contacts.

A Well-Connected Community

Access to information resources is a core element of Michigan’s

intellectual environment, and it plays an essential role in the

School’s mission to develop results-producing leaders. The

University of Michigan has one of the most technology-intensive

campuses in the world. Within this environment, the

Business School is an international trendsetter in information

resources and is working towards replacing your traditional

leather portfolio with a laptop. With our virtual community,

information is immediate and learning takes place virtually

anywhere. Michigan long ago made a philosophical and financial

commitment to delivering outstanding information

resources and the latest information technology to students, and

that commitment is stronger than

maintains a Trading Floor to train

students in the latest financial technology used by Wall Street

professionals. Here students have access to the latest financial

data and analysis, with high-end financial software and hardware,

including trading simulation software, real-time data

feeds and financial analysis and risk management applications.

The Trading Room also serves as an online classroom,

allowing students registered for certain courses to act as portfolio

managers, running a real investment fund using the latest

financial and investment management software and hardware.

28

Global Learning Facilities

The Business School operates a state-of-the-art video teleconferencing

facility on the fourth floor of the library for remote

teaching programs. Here, faculty and staff use the latest interactive

video and computer technology to teach classes

throughout the world. Consider the possibilities this technology

offers: you can sit in on a broadcast from Paris, Hong Kong

or just about anywhere. You can confer with your MAP client.

You can participate in conferences at other campuses. You can

even conduct job interviews.

M-Track

M-Track is the Business School’s web-based, virtual community

that brings together diverse academic, career and personal

resources. Information services available on M-Track include

career planning tools, lifetime e-mail, an up-to-the-minute

School events calendar, information on course requirements

and materials, company information including presentation

schedules, online resume preparation and links to software

downloads, tutorials and reference materials. Contact and selfreported

background information on alumni, companies,

students and organizations are on tap – along with instant e-mail

access. Students can access M-Track from any location with

Internet access.

The Electronic Library

Thousands of books and business journals…Subscriptions to

electronic services that provide in-depth information on every

topic imaginable…Online databases with the latest information

on everything from stock tips to corporate profiles…

Online course management system.

In many ways, the Business School’s Kresge Library is a

model for the academic library of the future. Whether you

need annual reports or full-text articles, reference books or

excerpts from business journals, you’ll find it here – with the

assistance of library staff. The library home page will connect

you to a Web version of the library’s online catalog, Mentor,

and a wide array of business resources on the Internet. As

you’d expect, the library also offers quiet study spaces.

And as a Michigan student, you’ll have user privileges at

all campus libraries, giving you access to more than six million

books, journals and additional electronic databases.


Services for Students

As you’ll discover, both the Kresge Library and Computing

Services operate on a customer-driven philosophy. They open

early and close late when School is in session. Staff members

are always ready to answer questions, help you use the many

resources and advise you on computer applications. You’ll see

those same familiar faces in your classrooms as Librarians and

Trainers for CS make presentations on resources, research

techniques and instructional tools. Suggestions are always

welcome – whether in person, written, or e-mailed, and each

year recommendations from students and faculty are built into

new services.

Welcome to the Last of the Great

University Towns

You’re going to love this city… Live here for even a short while

and Ann Arbor’s unique character will soon emerge. What is it

that makes this city of 140,000 so unusual? For starters, Ann

Arbor is one of the last great university towns: complete with

tree-lined avenues, historic houses, classic campus architecture,

quirky specialty shops, a café on almost every downtown

corner, parks and bike paths.

But Ann Arbor also has its corporate side. Check out the

industrial parks and the new corporate complexes, and you’ll

find that Ann Arbor serves as headquarters for giants like

Domino’s Pizza. It’s also home to two major medical centers,

dozens of high-tech firms, start-up companies of every description

and a vibrant and innovative entrepreneurial network.

Ann Arbor is also a cultural mecca and a magnet for the

performing arts. The Rand Guide has rated the University of

Michigan as the best campus cultural environment in the

United States. In clubs and concert halls, you can hear everything

from zydeco to jazz to rock to the world’s great symphony

orchestras. Movie buffs can choose from cult cinema, classics

and first-run films. For theater lovers, there’s Ann Arbor’s

Civic Theater, avant garde drama groups, Broadway touring

companies, University productions, and the nearby Purple

Rose Theatre founded by well-known actor and Michigan

native Jeff Daniels.

29

If food is one of your favorite recreations, be aware that

Ann Arbor is a destination town for diners, with options for

every taste and budget. Whether your preference is awardwinning

deli sandwiches or gourmet meals, you’ll be well

served.

The athletically inclined will appreciate Ann Arbor’s yearround

sporting options – from kayaking to cross-country

skiing, tennis to golf, softball to sailing. The University’s

athletic facilities are first-rate. Armchair athletes can “Go

Blue!” with Michigan’s nationally acclaimed Wolverines or

follow the fortunes of nearby Detroit, Toronto and Chicago

teams.

Ann Arbor is also a great springboard for getaways. You’re

less than 45 minutes from Detroit’s Greek Town and Eastern

Market. Just a few minutes more will take you across the

Ambassador Bridge to the diversions of Windsor, Ontario. In a

few hours’ drive or less than an

hour’s flight, you can be in the big LIBRARY RESOURCES
