You are responsible for your own transportation to/from Detroit Metro Airport. We recommend booking a seat on the AirRide/Michigan Flyer, which offers one-way fare of $12. The bus picks up/drops off at the Blake Transit Center near central campus (about a 15-minute walk from Ross) and the Kensington Court Hotel (hotel for WILC atteendees).
Join current students, alumnae, professionals, admissions representatives, and other prospective students at our annual Women in Leadership Conference.
Strengthen your network and learn how to drive your career through thoughtful and effective leadership. Learn about the Michigan Ross MBA program from the perspective of female students. Get in-depth information about MAP, recruiting, student life, and other aspects of our MBA experience.
Due to space constraints, participation in the Women in Leadership Conference and Admissions Preview event is by application only. The event is open to applicants of any gender who have demonstrated commitment or intent to promote the advancement of women in management.
