Due Diligence: MBA with a Focus on Sustainable Energy, Part 4
Continuing on our last three post (which can be read here, here, and here), the MBA program that offers premier opportunities for students interested in sustainable energy as it relates to environmental protection is Michigan Ross School of Business.
As in the previous posts, the article includes links for further research on the topics addressed.
For those interested in environmental protection, Ross’ MBA with a concentration in Business and Sustainability (BaS) may be the right program. The plethora of courses on the topic, offered both within Ross Business School and other divisions within Michigan University, help MBA students gain a deeper understanding of the sustainable energy sector.
Ross’ curriculum includes a highly emphasized and required Multidisciplinary Action Project (MAP) that focuses on bridging theoretical knowledge with real-world practice. To prepare leaders to solve real-world problems, MBA BaS students have the opportunity to work with an organization that focuses on sustainability and helps them solve a real business problem.
MBA students have an array of opportunities to engage in the community and expand their learning. During “Professional Development Week,” MBA students interested in a career in energy meet with potential employers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Second-year Ross MBA student-coaches organize Functional Accountability Career Teams (FACT) Groups, which are small, career-focused groups that meet weekly to prepare students for internship recruiting. The Energy Club is the leading organizer of the multi-school annual “Renewable Energy Conference Competition.” They also organize the Energy Conference, help with Consulting projects, Lunch & Learns and Coffee Chats, and other career treks.

About Sia Admissions:
Sia Admissions Consulting is a boutique firm based in New York City. We specialize in coaching students of diverse background navigate university admissions process. Our goal is to partner with students to help them characterize and reflect their individuality in all areas of the admissions application.
At Sia, we firmly believe that “one-size” does not fit all—each student has his or her story that, if communicated properly, a university admissions committee is eager to hear; therefore, we coach each student in originally telling his or her story. Our partnership with each student consists of – (i) recognizing the student’s story by asking poignant questions which help us (ii) identify the quintessence of his or her strengths and aspirations, so we may (iii) build an idiosyncratic strategy that helps the student distinctively present his or her story. Our aim is to coach student in showcasing a unique application that communicates their individuality as an ideal candidate for the field and institution of choice.
