Erb Student, Gregory Phillips, MBA/MS 2019, was recently profiled by Poets & Quants, detailing his experience at the University of Michigan, working for the Obama Administration and what he hopes to do in the field of business sustainability in the future. Gregory provides excellent advice for future business school applicants, encouraging them to focus on being a holistic candidate, not just perfecting their scores and stats. He also details how he came to choose a dual-degree education through the Erb Institute:

“Ross is obviously a highly prestigious business school, with an incredibly strong alumni network, and a celebrated history of excellence. While all of these factors played into my choosing Ross, the number one factor that led me to choose Michigan is the strength of the joint MBA/MS program with the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS). The Erb Institute, which is the partnership between Ross and SEAS that runs the dual degree, is one of the most highly-regarded business and environment joint programs, and provides various specific resources, including funding, academic counseling and a tight community of students interested in using business to build a sustainable future.”
