When asked about her decision to attend Michigan Ross, Gutierrez Marty identified the school’s commitment to action-based learning as a highly motivating factor. “The diverse opportunities Ross offers, from the Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) to interactive classroom experiences and leadership development, presented a unique platform to apply theoretical knowledge and frameworks in settings that mimic real-world challenges,” she shared. “At Ross, I found a community that not only shared this learning ethos but a place that is a leader in the field.” 

Gutierrez Marty put her learnings into practice and developed her leadership skills through her engagements with the Sanger Leadership Center and its Faculty Director, Dr. Lindy Greer

“I’ve been able to translate these learnings into my own leadership development, thanks to the Sanger Leadership Center’s comprehensive programming and mentorship opportunities. I’ve been privileged enough to work directly with Professor Lindy Greer on my individual leadership journey through experiments in a way that exemplifies the value of the action-based approach in my personal and professional growth.”
