The organization is entirely student-run, with an editorial staff composed of selected
University of Michigan undergraduates. Each semester, the Michigan Journal of Business will call for
papers from undergraduate students around the world. Throughout the semester, the
editorial board will carefully review, edit, and select exceptional work for
publication. Faculty willing to advise the Journal will be formed from each department
to give minor oversight for the project. A blind review process
will be used to ensure an impartial review of your submission.
