Beyond the MBA Classroom: MBgAy Party at Michigan Ross

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also making a commitment to a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

In 2009, Ross Out for Business (a student organization) hosted its first school-wide party, called MBgAy, one of the newest events on the University of Michigan Ross School of Business social calendar. The event, which sold out very quickly, was held at a club in Ann Arbor and featured a drag fashion show followed by dancing. Profits were split between a local charity and a fund for a new scholarship being developed by the club for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered students. One first-year student with whom mbaMission spoke just days after the February 2011 party (which raised $1,000 for the aforementioned scholarship fund) described the event as a “must see—for everyone.”
