What Is QuantumShift?

QuantumShift is an exclusive four-day peer-to-peer learning experience for the top decision-makers of fast-growing private companies.

  • Learn from and work with the top professors from the University of Michigan’s world renowned Stephen M. Ross School of Business, consistently ranked one of the top business schools in the world by the Financial Times, Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report

The opportunity to reflect and learn with my peer group was invaluable. We were able to share our successes and failures and leverage each other's experiences. It is an opportunity that many in our position do not often receive.
