Dividend Magazine

Dividend, the alumni magazine of the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, is mailed to more than 40,000 alumni and friends of the school. For more than three decades, Dividend has strived to extend the value of a Ross School education by informing readers of business trends, faculty research, school initiatives, and alumni activities. Now, as the acceptance rate of mobile computing devices increases at an accelerating pace and mobile applications are becoming ubiquitous in college campuses and offices, this technology creates a new venue to deliver Dividend’s multimedia and interactive content directly to the alumni’s mobile devices.
