Pierce Fitzpatrick

MBA Graduate - 2018

The MBA program at EMU is attractive to entrepreneurs like myself, due to the depth of knowledge and expertise of the faculty, and the quality of peer discussions. While attending EMU, I was actively building High Route Gear, a Detroit-based outdoor clothing startup. Growing a startup during an MBA program allowed me to apply my coursework to a live business model. I could pose current business challenges to tap into the expertise of the professors. My MBA has provided me with skills that I have since been able to apply to several high growth start-ups. I am currently the co-founder of No Dirty Earth, a producer of international award-winning water treatment systems for mobile applications. I use what I learned during my MBA everyday.

Jessica Bobee

MBA Supply Chain Management - 2017

After being established in my entrepreneurial career for over 10 years I decided that I wanted to make a jump from the fast casual food service industry to the automotive industry, as well as, earn an MBA. This change in industries would be difficult and as such, I began to prepare applications to highly ranked MBA programs. I also interviewed the universities that I was interested in; EMU was among those I interviewed. Upon meeting with Michelle Henry and her colleagues I was thrilled to apply to EMU’s MBA program. I was accepted with a concentration in Supply Chain Management. My MBA from EMU helped me secure a career at Ford Motor Company and I felt prepared entering my new position given the specialized training I received at EMU.

Chirag Chug

MBA Supply Chain Management Graduate - 2015

"I always felt that I was lucky to be a student at Eastern Michigan University. The thing that I admire most is that I always received support from everyone regarding ‘on campus jobs’ to ‘scoring good grades ‘ to ‘getting full time job’. They are always motivational. The other main reason to join this school was that there were many students from various nationalities, so I thought I would fit in much better here. I was able to establish great relationships with faculty and other students with whom I’m still in touch with. I did master's in business administration and I believe that I improved a lot in my organizational skills, analytical skills, leadership skills and out of the box thinking though various courses and seminars. These skills actually helped me a lot in getting an opportunity to work with multiple companies."
