We recently hired someone from UM-F that has been a professional for a few years now. She was a consultant that made her way full time with our company. During the Interview process she mentioned that she attended the flint campus; I am from Philadelphia so we usually pick from wharton and stern and I really have no idea about these other campus's of UM.
But let me first state at the end of the day this "inferior" graduate as some of you may call her, wiped most all of our "ivy" applicants and her business and communication skills were amazing. Her BBA from Flint may not be the same as the BBA from Ross, but a business degree non-theless. And yes, our HR department noted it from the transcripts. I wouldnt of chosen a more qualified person, she did not need to flaunt her education during the interview like the others, we wanted her to prove to us that she could satisfy business needs and that is what she did regardless of where she studied her academics.
In short, most of the comments I have read here are very close minded, Im sure most of you understand why the campus was started in Flint, so just let it go, its a part of UM. One may be academically strong in a great school, but professionally terrible for a professional organization.
