This review is for Ross Michigan
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2014
Having lived in 4 different countries before coming to Michigan, I was exposed to almost every type of culture possible, different educational and work environments. I had had high expectations, and eventually the Ross School of Business helped me to make a geographical and industry switch. I can't say it was an easy journey (it was one of the most complicated actually), but I survived and deeply appreciate all the support received from peers, professors and alumni. Without them I wouldn't be able to end up in New York.
All future applicants should come prepared and not be shy to speak with alumni and people around them. Michigan Wolverines are extremely responsive and helpful -- you can certainly shoot a note not only to a b-school alum, but to any Michigan graduate and receive a response in a matter of hours/days. Because Michigan is so big, you can find a connection in virtually any company, industry or region. It's one of the most valuable assets Michigan provides you with.
I don't want to sound biased but knowing MBA alumni in different schools, I do know that Michigan should be in a top10 list. In the last couple of years, it became even stronger in the IB space and more and more folks are heading to Wall St.
Deloitte, Amazon, MS, Citi, Big3 and Big5 are huge here.
Every BB bank is also on campus.
Tons of opportunities to network with people in the Bay area.
