The Energy Club at Ross (ECR) is a group of ambitious MBA students and then some who share a passion for energy. ECR's mission is to educate its members and provide access to employment opportunities ranging from traditional energy trading to renewable energy finance to new energy technologies. This variety of interests enables cross-pollination of students' knowledge from past and current experiences with University and corporate resources. ECR currently has nearly 200 members, and an executive board of twelve officers lead the club's activities.
ECR has helped members earn prominent positions at energy companies. Many former ECR members remain active with the club and are available to help current students. In addition, the greater University of Michigan community has over 450,000 living alumni– more than any other University in the United States. UM alumni have proven to be a fantastic resource for career development and ECR works vigorously to foster relationships with them. Alumni also help create and manage relationships between ECR and top energy companies.
