At Michigan State University, we value learning opportunities that take place outside the classroom, where students can grow professionally and soak up the latest knowledge from experts in the field. Thanks to a $25,000 gift from an alumna, Broad Spartans will now be able to tap into the Barron’s in Education program from Dow Jones and gain these valuable experiences.
Entry to this leading financial portal and magazine was gifted by Kathy Roeser (B.A. Marketing ’86) offering 24/7 access for Broad faculty, staff and students.
This program also includes experiential learning opportunities such as networking and live webinars featuring Wall Street’s top advisers. Students will be able to take in the same real-time content and magazine that provides perspective, insights and analysis to the most successful business professionals.
Broad faculty members can also sign up for Barron’s Weekly Review, a resource for use in the classroom to connect real-world business coverage with student learning. The review is emailed to all participating faculty members each Wednesday and is curated with specific topics, summaries, classroom applications and prepared questions.
For over 100 years, Barron’s has been a highly valued source to c-suite executives, financial professionals, academics, government officials and entrepreneurs. Thanks to Roeser’s generosity, the Broad College joins an elite group of 115+ schools to have this unique access.
