Beyond the automotive industry, the M.B.A. program at the Broad School of Management prepares students for a range of industries, with full-time M.B.A. concentrations in marketing, finance, human resource management, and supply chain management. Working professionals can enroll in the school’s accelerated weekend program and complete their M.B.A. in 19 months. The Broad Graduate School of Management also offers master of science degrees in accounting, market research, and supply chain management. Students aiming for a dual degrees can combine their M.B.A. with a J.D. from Michigan State University’s College of Law, or a master of global management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, Ariz.
Broad’s students can gain exposure to global enterprise through the school’s study abroad program, or sharpen their leadership skills at one of the school’s experiential learning laboratories. The school’s laboratories include the Leadership and Teamwork Laboratory, the Financial Analysis Laboratory, and the IBM On-demand Supply Chain Management Laboratory, where students experiment with the key relationships in a supply chain. The M.B.A. program at Michigan State University is also one of only 13 programs in the country to offer the Chartered Financial Analyst Program in partnership with the CFA Institute.
Outside of classrooms and labs, students at the Broad Graduate School of Management can join one of the school’s student organizations, or ride the miles of bike paths traversing the 5,200-acre campus in East Lansing. Broad’s notable alumni include Susan J. Unger, former CIO of DaimlerChrysler; Jay Keranen, senior vice president at Morgan Stanley; and Robert Stempel, a former CEO at General Motors who helped develop the catalytic converter.
