Edward Grubb Earns 2011 Tauber Alumni Scholarship
Edward Grubb, MBA ’12 and 2011 recipient of the $1,000 Tauber Alumni Scholarship, can add this accomplishment to a growing list of achievements he has realized in his life. In addition to being a strong advocate for the Tauber Institute for Global Operations, Grubb is an adventure seeker who has, among other feats, survived five weeks camping in the Arctic Circle.
Fearlessness and a strong work ethic come naturally for this Ross School of Business student who has served as a co-chair of the Tauber Global Operations Conference Sponsorship Committee and Product Development Panel as well as the Leadership Speaker Series. He has worked in many ways to increase Tauber’s visibility among global companies and organizations as well as enhance the experience of his fellow U-M students by bringing high level executives and leaders in as speakers.
“I believe that by broadening the connections of the Tauber Leadership Speaker Series, Tauber students’ educational experience will be enriched and that there will be ripple effects that bring visibility to the Tauber Institute within the larger university community and beyond,” said Grubb.
He credits his peers and mentors at Tauber for inspiring him to do more as a leader, saying that it simply feels like what he is being trained to do at U-M.
“Over the next academic year -- and after graduating -- I intend to continue to support the Tauber Institute. I believe in the value of the Tauber community of students, alumni, and staff,” said Grubb.
