Residential Business Program


The Residential Business Program Community at Michigan State University is dedicated to creating a residential academic experience to promote, enhance, and support students’ academic, personal, and professional growth in their development as business students in a diverse and multicultural world. The RBP Community prepares students to be business leaders and encourages their own professional development throughout their college experience. This community living experience will also assist students in acquiring the relational skills necessary to succeed and lead in today’s global society. Through a seamless environment of academic and experiential learning activities, students develop business leadership competencies in a collaborative, inclusive, and multicultural environment
