Student resource groups are the lifeblood of Broad’s Full-Time and STEM MBA program. Resource groups connect students with prominent industry leaders, countless professional development opportunities and the ability to make a real impact during their time in East Lansing. Membership in MBA student resource groups also empowers students to connect with one another around networking and program development, professional foci, diversity, social interests and common experiences.

MBA Association

The MBAA has two distinct missions: the first is to promote a socially connected and inclusive community within the program and the second is to represent the student body to the administration and to act as a liaison for all program-related issues. To promote a strong social culture within the program, the MBAA organizes, funds, and/or facilitates a variety of social and professional events that are open to all members and are intended to broadly benefit the MBA community as a whole.

Events

MBAA provides Broad MBA students many exclusive opportunities to expand their contact network outside of the classroom, as well as opportunities to engage in volunteer and community impact activities. Examples of just some of the annual events include:

  • Welcome back picnic
  • Corporate-sponsored football tailgates
  • International potluck dinner
  • Happy hours
  • Sparty Gras
  • Halloween party
  • Charity events
  • Golf classic
