Getting an MBA at Michigan State (Broad)

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED [?]

This review is for Broad

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

A major advantage of this program is the culture of collaboration and peer support. The class size is small (around 70) and full of driven and smart, yet humble professionals.

The supply chain management concentration is a world-class program full of high quality professors with an abundance of real-world industry experience. The program offers a unique blend of theoretical frameworks and practitioner consultation.

Future applicants should consider Broad if they want an intense academic experience along with phenomenal peer support. Group project work is as important to the Broad experience as oxygen is to lung function.

The facilities are admittedly subpar, but the school plans to break ground in the near future on a brand new, state of the art building.

The Best school to pursue a supply chain career

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

This review is for Broad

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2016

Experience during the program

If supply chain, operations OR sourcing management is your end goal, beyond doubt, this is the one of the best schools that the United States has to offer. The school can boast of some of the most well known faculty in the field of supply chain. The curriculum prepares your extensively for tackling real world problems. Additional emphasis on team work ( most assignments are based on randomly assigned teams ) simulates real world work experience.

Experimental learning is encouraged through various avenues such as project based learning or providing consulting services to local industries and startups. Student run organizations such as Spartan Consulting ( entirely run and managed by MBA's) helps you test your consulting skills right when you are on campus.

Complementing the academics is the excellent breadth of companies that recruit at Broad. We have big names from automotive, tech, consulting and CPG coming to campus and the school has seen healthy growth in the average salary of graduates. The ROI is one of the best in the overall landscape and the average salary range rivals even the top 10 ranked schools.

Summarizing, the program totally helped me meet my goals and far exceeded my expectations from an MBA program.
