You don’t need to know everything; you just need to know enough to be dangerous.

Between coursework, extra-curricular programming, networking, and professional development, Carey keeps us busy. With so much on our plates, it’s hard to keep up with what is going on beyond our upcoming assignments, exams, and interviews. As someone interested in the cross-section of business, health care, design thinking, and analytics, I find it especially difficult to keep track of topics beyond my forte. Yet being able to talk the business talk beyond my professional niche is essential for facilitating networking chats and even helpful in sparking personal conversations. Luckily, I have my sidekick, The Morning Brew.

How did the Morning Brew come about?
After receiving a full-time offer from his summer internship, Alex Lieberman spent his senior year helping his undergraduate classmates at University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business prepare for interviews in the finance world. He’d spend an hour each day summarizing the business news of the previous day and send it to a small group of friends. As more students discovered this magical resource, they asked to be added to the email chain. Witnessing the number of recipients grow, Austin Rief, my brother and a sophomore at the time, saw the need for a digestible business news source that business and non-business majors alike could comprehend.

Fast forward two and a half years.
