“Broad creates leaders. The class sizes are small and the hands-on approach to education almost forces you to step up and lead. You’re expected to participate and you’re expected to make a difference in the classroom and in the community.”

Daniel Villegas, MBA ’10

“Michigan State has a reputation of people that are willing to roll up their sleeves and get the work done. There’s a lot of diversity in course offerings that sets you up for success.”

Holly Miller, MBA ’15

“Broad taught me the importance of working as a team. We learned how to generate our thoughts, align our team on the solution and make sure everything’s done ... taking into account time and pressure challenges.”

Vikas Harish, MBA ’11

“As business evolves, I feel I have the skills to evolve with it. It’s not just about knowledge, it’s about a mindset and being able to take on anything.”

Travis Martin, MBA ’18

“The chance to experience a different culture, look at industry in a different country, and really understand how commerce works globally, that was fantastic. It’s not just going to learn something, but broadening horizons and getting out of your comfort zone; it’s extremely important.”

Tony Grant, MBA ’05

“The program gets you thinking about your style of leadership, your role and how you influence your team. It’s been a really good opportunity for my own personal growth over these last two years. I’m thinking even bigger now than I was when I came in.”
