The best thing about Ross is the focus on action-based learning, which is defined by the mufti-disciplinary projects where students work in many global locations helping organizations solve problems, enter new markets, etc. This focus on action-based learning also permeates in classes where you take on CEO roles, venture capital roles or come up with new ideas or businesses. Combining these "real-world" experiences with cases and lectures provides a well-rounded education.
The best thing about the program was the academic curriculum and how it focused on leadership principles. This provided a strong foundation in business skills, but also showed us how to effectively apply these skills as managers and leaders.
Every student is immensely generous with their time and went out of their way to help other students both academically and professionally. All second year students give their time to help first years prep for interviews, meet recruiters, and succeed in their internships.
The type of people and employers attracted to Ross are from a wide range of global and domestic locations, so I have had the opportunity to meet and expand my network and perspectives in ways I never dreamed possible. Since this diversity is so strong, a wide range of employers are attracted to Michigan without too strong a concentration in any one area of the globe. This truly makes the opportunities unlimited!
The community at Ross - whether current students or alumni have been the best thing about my MBA program. My peers helped me gained my confidence, and put a lot of time and effort to prepare me for my interviews. Almost all the alumni I've contacted so far responded to my e-mails, were candid about their work experiences and provided valuable information.
The administration needs to be more responsive to student needs. Also having an MBA program and an undergrad BBA program under one roof detracts, more than helps the MBA experience.
There is a wide range of ability and experience in the students at Ross. At times I felt that certain students did not belong in the same program as I did; they did not add to the classroom experience.
The variety of educational opportunities. I can take classes in any aspect of business, but I can also learn from classmates in dual degree programs. Some of my MBA friends are also getting degrees at the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, Information, Policy, and Natural Resources. Furthermore, I have found that professors are always willing to talk to students outside the classroom.
The best thing about my MBA program was the internship and full-time opportunities that were offered to me. Ross opened the door for me to be able to obtain an internship with one of the most prestigious companies in the world. I would not have been able to achieve this without Ross.
The location was not ideal. The winter was hard and the area feels like it caters to and is overrun with immature undergraduates.
