As the dean of the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, Alison Davis-Blake says she’s noticed a shift in goals among entrepreneurial hopefuls. She thinks millennials currently in business school are distinct, compared to MBAs of the past.

For these most recent students, earning profits is just one part of being a successful business leader; fostering a great workplace, and being a good neighbor are equally important.
