Great Outcomes

Will I be able to find a job?” Is this something you’ve thought about as you’ve narrowed down your college choices, comparing one program to another?

It’s definitely a question we hear a lot around the Admissions office, from many prospective students and their parents — because, let’s face it, college is an investment. You want to know that after you devote your time and financial resources to earning a degree, you’re going to be able to get work in your field.

That’s why we’re so proud to say, “Yes!” In fact, 100 percent of our 2014 five-year bachelor’s degree/master’s degree graduates had a job upon graduation.

Why do companies hire UDM B.S./MBA alumni? It might have to do with the fact that our students graduate with real work experience, thanks to our required internships that give students a chance to use what they learn in the classroom in a professional environment. They also benefit from an assigned alumni mentor as well as our Executive-in-Residence, who helps connect students to potential employers.

What are our alumni up to now? They’re making significant contributions to their professions and society. Many have become leaders at major corporations. Our graduates include a president & CEO at Wendy’s Restaurants, a chairman of the board at Compuware and vice presidents at CBS Television, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, DTE Energy and J.P. Morgan Chase Bank.

Alumni Profile: Anai Orozco-Hernandez

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - Accounting

I was born in a beautiful small town in Mexico and have always felt more confident and comfortable in a close-knit community, such as the one I found at University of Detroit Mercy. The individual attention I received from professors and staff, the friendships I've made with people from diverse cultures, the values I've learned to guide me in my professional and personal life, with the great city of Detroit as my background, have all been essential and led me to where I am today...

Great Values

Do you want to make the world a better place? We do! No matter which business school you choose, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the field, but at UDM we can offer you something more: The opportunity and know-how to affect change in the world around you.

Why are we different? Because we’re rooted in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions of our religious sponsors. Jesuit and Mercy schools are known for providing students a great, well-rounded education with an emphasis on leadership and service — we don’t just teach business; we create community leaders.

While in school, hone your skills by participating in service learning projects aimed at helping others, like providing volunteer income tax assistance and teaching financial literacy classes. You’ll learn business, but also so much more.

Great American City

Do you want to go to school in a city rich with culture and entertainment, known for its music, theater, food, sports and world-class museums?

And what about a city with 20 Fortune 500 companies nearby? Think about the possibilities for co-op placements and internships!

If this sounds good to you, then you might just feel at home at University of Detroit Mercy. Our students learn, work and play in the Motor City. And as a business student, you’ll be at the forefront of the industry, surrounded by opportunities to make a name for yourself before you’re even done with school.

Your on-campus opportunities are plentiful, too. You’ll get great personal attention from your professors, thanks to our student-centered environment and small class sizes, and you can meet new friends with similar interests in our many clubs and organizations.

But as much as we take pride in our Detroit roots and campus experience, we also understand how important it is for our students to experience the world at large. That’s why we offer study abroad opportunities through our International Studies in Business travel course — experience the world of business in Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona and Rome.

Come, open the door, visit us and learn how you can play an active role in creating your own path to success. Great things are in store for you at the University of Detroit Mercy!
