We are an elite business school housed within the University of Michigan, one of the world’s most prestigious and diverse research universities. We give you access to the brightest minds and latest thinking in whatever interests you most, and encourage you to step out of Ross — whether you’re heading to the College of Engineering for a symposium or to Rwanda for our Global Projects course.
We are the pioneers of action-based learning, which we continue to expand 20 years after launching our signature Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) course. We take you out of the classroom to utilize the concepts you’ve learned with real issues at stake. Some other schools immerse you in the real world for a week or two, but MAP is a core course comprising one-quarter of your first year. Action-based learning lets you walk into job interviews armed with concrete results.
We prepare you for a career, not just a job, in whatever field you choose. You won’t be forced down a narrow track here — our Office of Career Development attracts a diverse portfolio of recruiting companies and industries because of our broad-based curriculum and ways to customize your MBA. Google. McKinsey. JPMorgan. Amazon. P&G. Our alumni are there. And they’re sponsoring MAP projects, sourcing internships, and hiring our students.
We are a lifelong network that will provide personal and professional support during your time at Ross and throughout your career. Facebook and LinkedIn are useful tools. But think of Ross as the ultimate social network, one that counts more than 40,000 Ross alumni, half a million U-M alumni, and provides everything from job leads to a group with whom to cheer on the Wolverines — whether you’re in Boston or Bangkok.
