Mike Barger
JetBlue Co-Founder & Former US Navy TOPGUN Pilot & Chief Instructor

Today, Mike is the Executive Director, Strategy & Academic Innovation, Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

Mike has been front and center of numerous leadership situations wherein tragedy or crisis fell upon him and his team or organization as a whole. Even now, during the COVID19 pandemic, Mike is serving on the leadership team at Ross to help the faculty, staff and very importantly, the student body navigate their every day.

BTW, he teaches a unique and wildly popular course to MBA students titled "High Stakes Leadership". Can't think of a better person to teach such a course than Mike Barger.
