A Top School at a Great University
The reasons to choose the Ross School are abundant. We harbor a renowned business school within an internationally recognized university that is among the world leaders in funded research. Because the PhD program is a component of the Horace H. Rackham School for Graduate Studies at the University of Michigan, students have full access to the resources, privileges, and obligations of the University community. However, the program is structured and supervised by the faculty and administration of the Ross School.

Within this rich environment are opportunities for self-directed, yet collaborative work and the funding to support it. Ross faculty are among the most influential in the world.

For researchers seeking to bring new discoveries to the world, the University’s collaborative spirit is vital. For scholars looking to put their ideas into practice, the program is connected to an enormous network of business partners.
