Dear Statistics Students,
The Michigan Journal of Business (MJB), an elite group at the University of Michigan with a goal to review and publish undergraduate academic work in the field of business, is seeking students to apply for Associate Editor positions. *All applications are due on Monday September 14th, 2009 by midnight.*
Please refer to our website at www.michiganjb.org and our application page at http://www.michiganjb.org/application.shtml for more information about the Journal and available positions. Questions should be directed to email@example.com
The MJB, inaugurated in 2007 under faculty supervision of Professor Tammy Feldman and BBA Program Director Professor Scott Moore, is the first undergraduate business journal in the U.S. Our first four editions generated submissions from over 30 top universities, leading to the publication of exceptional articles in the field of business. Our publications have been distributed to over 200 university libraries worldwide and are officially catalogued at dozens of institutions, including the Kresge Library at the Ross School of Business, the Baker Library at Harvard Business School, and the Main Library of Princeton University.
Serving on the editorial board of the Journal will require a group of intelligent students that bring passion to the process of editing and publishing academic research. Such an experience is also desirable for students who are interested in graduate and professional school programs. Additionally, the cohesive nature of the board will allow members to network with some of the top students in the business school. During the 2007 and 2008 school year, the MJB board had an average GPA of 3.85 and included our schools former valedictorian, editors who now attend Michigan Law School and Yale Law School, as well as editors with professional experiences at firms such as the Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, McKinsey, and Morgan Stanley.
The MJB is looking for students who are willing to bring dedication and time commitment. A writing sample, your GPA, and a short interview will primarily be used to measure your editing, writing, intellectual, and leadership skills necessary as an editor.
