The “learn-by-doing approach” to business leadership is a foundational principle of at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. The rigorous curriculum highlights analytics, action-based learning, and a commitment to sustainability and business ethics throughout a two-year program that features a core curriculum in the first year and customized electives in the second. “The time commitment is huge and the payoff is great,” so MBA students should “be ready to dedicate yourself to studies and commit to your fellow students.” Michigan Ross “has it figured out” and “everything works like a well-oiled machine”; even so, the dean is “highly visible and makes strides to listen about the student experience.” At every turn, the administration “makes every effort to make a great experience for students and improve the school in meaningful ways.”

Life at Michigan Ross is “a mix of balancing academics, recruiting, and socializing”: “You’re constantly surrounded by your classmates, whether it’s working on group projects, discussing recent lectures, or just hanging out.” The University of Michigan is a formidable institution itself, and the Michigan Ross “encourages cross-program collaboration” with the university so that “the learning opportunities are unparalleled.” The first-year MAP experience in which students consult for real companies for seven full weeks in lieu of classes is “an extraordinary opportunity to develop real skills in the real world while building strong industry connections.” The school has “so many top tier programs” that students have access “to world class professionals and teachers with backgrounds from nearly every industry.” Every professor has experience teaching their classes, “knows the material inside and out,” and “brings relevant new material in as appropriate.”
