A culture of entrepreneurship is woven into every program at Michigan Ross and has been alive and well at the University of Michigan for decades. Ross' phenomenal resources and experience in entrepreneurship make it the place to learn not just how to start up, but to start strong.

Resources such as the Samuel Zell & Robert H. Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies bring the nation’s most successful entrepreneurs and faculty to Ann Arbor, and with them, the latest ideas in new venture creation, financing, growth, and innovation. It is here where the nation's first student-run investment fund was created and where you can get hands-on experience in venture financing.

Events such as Entrepalooza, the Michigan Business Challenge, and Dare to Dream bring the entrepreneurship curriculum to life and are great examples of how your education at Michigan Ross will set you apart from your competition and ensure your venture's long-term success.
