Business Beyond Usual

#309 - How They’re Building This - Discussions With MBA Student Entrepreneurs

Episode Summary

In a few years, look for these Michigan Ross MBA entrepreneurs to be featured on NPR’s How I Built This.

Episode Notes

The entrepreneurial spirit is strong in top MBA programs, with a fair number of MBA students entering business school each year with the intention of starting a business of their own — but what is that experience really like?

In this episode, hear entrepreneurs and MBA students Holly Meyers, Chima Mbadugha, and Sheela Lal as they take you through their respective entrepreneurial journeys and why business school is both the best time (free to fail!) and the worst time (stress is high!) to start a business.
