The School of Management is launching a new program for Fall 2017!
Students will learn not only state-of-the-art theoretical underpinnings of leadership and organizational dynamics, but also how to strategically implement these theories through simulated “real world” applications and exercises in the classroom and the online environment. The M.S. program will allow you to work effectively as a self-aware, reflective change agent, armed with a deeper understanding of organizational dynamics and the knowledge to improve outcomes, while employing leadership practices that will help you guide your organization to success.

The UM-Flint School of Management is seeking a highly qualified and motivated Graduate Student Staff Assistant to support Advising starting in Spring 2017. The position is for 8 hours per week. Training will be provided by SOM Advisors during Spring/Summer 2017, plus hands-on-training with supervision.
The University of Michigan-Flint’s School of Management ranked as one of the Best Business Schools in the Midwest for 2017.
The School of Management was selected along with 294 other business schools by the Princeton Review.
“We are very pleased to once again be recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the Best Business Schools in their 2017 publication. The methodology consists of The Princeton Review conducting a nationwide survey of enrolled business students,” said Scott D. Johnson, Dean of the School of Management. “This is a nice confirmation for us that our students perceive our offerings to be high quality. It is an important external validation for our excellent faculty and staff.”
The Hagerman Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation held its Summer Entrepreneurship Institute camp for the first time on July 12-14.
High school juniors and seniors spent three days learning about multiple aspects of entrepreneurship, business, and marketing. The camp aims to help high school students understand entrepreneurship and the excitement surrounding new ventures that can solve real problems.
This past year, there were more than 700 international students attending UM-Flint – the most they have ever hosted.
“We are an international campus that has been progressing over the past decade,” says Dan Adams, International Center Director. “The reality is that having this identity isn’t just our students. It happens with the curriculum and student life make-up; it’s a matter of embracing what is here now. Diversity means nothing; it’s really about what you do with it. It’s how you incorporate it into your everyday life, your student and professional lives, your friendships and relationships.”
And UM-Flint is not short on diversity. Students hailing from China, India, South Korea, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Jamaica and even more countries decide to live, work, study and play in Flint.
The Hagerman Student Scholars program has been expanded for the 2016-2017 academic year by adding two additional students to the lineup for its annual Hagerman Student Scholar Award. The Hagerman Student Scholar award was created in 2015 to support future entrepreneurs. Hagerman Student Scholars become ambassadors of the Hagerman Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation located inside the School of Management.
