This review is for Ross Michigan
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2014
Ross has a strong connection for people in the MBA program. It can be seen in the way the school was built to facilitate human interaction and connections.
I also found the staff to be very inviting (for the most part) and willing to engage the students on a variety of subjects, especially when it came to defending a position during a discussion.
The ranking of the MBA also makes it desirable as you find all forms of on campus recruiting regardless of what a student is interested in.
If I could suggest one thing: think very hard about what you think your interests are and then look to see who the major hiring firms are at a program. The companies with the most presence dictate a lot of the recruiting events and as such, lends to what the students are interested in. You might actually find lower ranked programs are more in line with your career aspirations when compared to higher ranked programs.
The MBA world is in a state of flux, a bubble of sorts. I feel there will be diminishing returns on the MBA program over time as more and more people obtain the MBA.
Ross has a nice niche of cross campus class, with school of public policy, natural resources, law/med school, engineering among others. This really lends a student to branch out and really experience whatever he/she is interested in. I'm very fortunate to have been part of this.
Mentioned above: make sure you think hard about what you want out of the MBA. It's acceptable to change your mind during the MBA program, but go in with a desired path and seek it.
