The Broad College of Business would like to invite you to consider applying to the Residential Business Program (RBP) Community

We are writing to invite you to apply for the Residential Business Program (RBP) Community at Michigan State University. The RBP Community is dedicated to creating a residential academic experience to promote, enhance, and support students’ academic, personal, and professional growth in their development as business students in a diverse and multicultural world. The RBP Community prepares students to be business leaders and encourages their own professional development throughout their college experience. The program will also assist students in acquiring the relational skills necessary to succeed and lead in today’s global society. Through a seamless environment of academic and experiential learning activities, students develop business leadership competencies in a collaborative, inclusive, and multicultural environment.


The RBP Community is an exciting living, learning, and leadership opportunity for incoming freshmen and undergraduates pursuing a business degree in the Broad College of Business. Through a fantastic support system consisting of the Broad College’s nationally acclaimed Lear Corporation Career Services Center, Multicultural Business Programs, and Undergraduate Academic Services, the Residential Business Program Community will help students develop the academic and professional profile needed to succeed in college and in a career after graduation.

The RBP Community is housed in McDonel Hall which is conveniently located near the Business College Complex, just a short walk away. McDonel Hall is located in the River Trail Neighborhood which houses our Neighborhood Engagement Center (
