Minorities in Business
The Ross School of Business has a long tradition of fostering a diverse educational community, and we offer prospective students a variety of opportunities to experience this through our student organizations, our annual UpClose event, and relationships with diversity organizations.
Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is an
alliance of leading American business schools and some of our country's top
corporations. Their mission is to enhance diversity in business
education and leadership by helping to increase the representation of
African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in their member
schools' enrollments and in the ranks of management. The Ross School
partners with the Consortium to recruit outstanding students who have shown
a commitment to diversity and connect them with students on campus to
enhance their experience. It also provides a strong network that
students can leverage during their time at Ross and beyond. The Ross
Consortium holds several live and virtual events to help underrepresented
minority students matriculate through business school and into a successful
career. Listen to the online chat with one of our Associate Directors
The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management's MBA Application Preparation Seminars (MAPS) are intended to provide prospects with "insider" knowledge about The Consortium’s 17 member schools, the application and admissions process, The Consortium Fellowship opportunity and the benefits of The Consortium membership.
We encourage all prospective MBA students with a demonstrated commitment to increasing the participation of underrepresented groups in the professions to apply to the Ross MBA Program through The Consortium.
The Black Business Student Association (BBSA) at the Ross School of Business was founded in 1970. It is a reflection of the school's commitment to educating future minority business leaders and creating a diverse business school community, which as resulted in the Black Business Students' Association becoming one of the most visible and active student-led organizations on campus.
The first BBSA conference began in 1976 as a networking event with only 15 participants. This year's had over 200. The conference serves as a networking forum during which students, alumni, and other members of our community can share their personal experiences and provide support to one another.
