WHO WE ARE
The Emerging Markets Club (EMC), founded by the Ross School of Business, is comprised of current and future leaders from the University of Michigan committed to exploring market-based approaches to poverty alleviation and development using innovative and competitive management strategies, methods, and tools focusing on “Base of the Pyramid” markets.
With the strength of our membership and the resources available, EMC seeks to educate, equip, and send Michigan students into emerging markets with the ability to evoke positive change. Furthermore, it is our aim to make Michigan the premier school in the world addressing the most critical issues facing emerging economies today.
WHAT IS AN EMERGING MARKET?
We believe emerging markets should not be seen solely through the lens of geographic boundaries, but rather the transitioning segment of economies where gaps exist in enabling efficient market transactions. While we, as an organization, understand the importance of considering some areas of the US market as "emerging", our membership is primarily focused on international opportunities for economically viable social ventures.
EMC would also like to give special thanks to Professor Ted London, who serves as our faculty advisor.
