Black Business Alumni Association

Welcome to the Michigan Ross Black Business Alumni Association! Connect with fellow alumni, attend events, stay informed, and help build Michigan Ross' visibility. Here are a few ways to begin new connections:

  • We are always developing new programming, events, and career development opportunities, so please join our mailing list and check back for updates to learn, exchange ideas and network.

  • Donate to the BBSA Solidarity Fund to support our current MBA students! 

  • Share exciting events and opportunities with our BBAA board via our Events Submission Form. You can use this form to relay information regarding an upcoming event in your region. The hope is that we increase awareness to help alumni connect and engage across our Go Blue alumni network.

Best and #GoBlue!
