Leadership: Outside the Classroom

The Residential Business Community provides and supports through the comprehensive “Building Your Leadership Legacy” program a variety of workshops, campus events, corporate networking, speaker series, and community engagement opportunities to develop professional skills desired by corporate recruiters including the following:

  • Global/Multicultural Awareness
  • Career/Academic Success
  • Leadership/Professional Development
  • Community/Civic Engagement

It is imperative that students embrace multicultural environments as the university is moving to a more diverse population–and most companies and organizations are as well. At Ernst & Young, we call this approach having a ‘global mindset.’ It requires being inclusive leaders–every one of us–and striving to understand and value the differences in others so we can deliver our best work as a team. Students who take advantage of multicultural learning, teaming, and collaborating opportunities while in school will have an easier transition to working in our global marketplace.

Peer Leader ProgramRBP TEAM


The Peer Leader Program gives RBC students the opportunity to get leadership experience early on during their freshman year. There are 5 groups of RBC students that are responsible for handling all of the behind the scenes responsibilities for the program. Each team is led by an upper class RBC student, and assisted by “freshman co-chairs”. Throughout the year these teams are responsible for planning community service events, working with corporate partners to plan site visits and program sponsorships, recruitment/outreach initiatives, and overall assistance that promotes the success of the RBC experience. This program gives students the opportunity to gain invaluable leadership competencies that will contribute to their future success as business leaders during their time at Michigan State University and beyond.
