At Ross, we believe the people with whom you learn are as important as what you learn and how you learn it. You will be surrounded by some of the most determined self-starters you'll ever meet: smart, interesting, successful people who embrace challenge and push each other to do their best. Outside of class, you will enjoy a Big Ten, college-town experience.
Clubs and Organizations
Ross hosts 20 undergraduate clubs, including the BBA Council, to support your professional, social, and community activities.
- In 2009 Ross students in the Michigan Interactive Investments Club founded the nation's first Undergraduate Intercollegiate Stock Pitch Competition. Students have traveled from as far as Oxford and UC-Berkeley to compete.
- The Michigan Journal of Business is the first academic journal in the U.S. to promote undergraduate business research and scholarship. Ross BBAs manage the editorial lineup, graphic design, and printing of each issue. Founded by BBAs in 2007, the publication is carried by more than 200 university libraries across five continents.
- Ross is home to an incredibly active and successful Net Impact organization (graduate and undergraduate). The school hosted the national Net Impact Conference in 2010.
Case competitions offer a valuable avenue to develop teamwork, leadership, analytical, and presentation skills. Plus you get the added benefit of networking with corporate sponsors and judges.
- M-Nets stands for Mentorship through Networks, Ethics, Teaching, and Service. The program connects BBA sophomores and juniors with a mentor, and promotes awareness of personal ethics and values.
- MREACH is an acronym for Michigan Ross Enriching Academics in Collaboration with High Schools. MREACH brings high school students from across Southeast Michigan to campus for an introduction to business education, entrepreneurship, and careers. Once you are a Ross BBA, you may volunteer as a program facilitator and tutor.
