Career Development

Pro Bono Work

The general management MBA at Ross prepares students to tackle problem-solving for a variety of functions and industries. While some graduates choose to take that skillset directly into social impact careers, you may choose to apply your skills through pro bono consulting.

Pro bono consulting is skills-based volunteering; serving  nonprofits through specific, applied contributions greatly outstrips the value of general volunteering support. It also helps you further your business acumen, leadership abilities, and networking potential. You can find opportunities through your company or individually.

Many of the Business+Impact programs develop both a consulting mindset and provide valuable experience and frameworks for delivering social impact.

    • DNEP Free Accounting Fridays offer students the opportunity to work with real Detroit entrepreneurs on the ground at the U-M Detroit Center in downtown Detroit.
