“Business is the most powerful force on the planet for positive change.”

Scott DeRue, Edward J. Frey Dean, Stephen M. Ross Professor of Business

BUILD A BETTER WORLD

Business can and should be the world’s most powerful driver of positive change. Business enables economic prosperity, fosters social mobility and welfare, and influences economic and social policy in ways that deeply impact our global society.

At Michigan Ross, we believe the ultimate goal of our research and teaching is to use business to create a better world. This is our purpose and our passion.

Big & Bold Ideas

DEVELOP POSITIVE 
LEADERS

Recruiters seek out our students because Ross graduates go well beyond mastery of core business skills and tools. Our students have the character and capabilities to create a better world: They collaborate across boundaries; they exhibit grit, determination, and a willingness to go above and beyond; they lead by example; and they understand the importance of listening and learning.

We’re seeing the returns. By most metrics, our career preparation and placement are among the best in the world. And after graduation, our commitment to our students endures as a true partnership of lifelong growth, learning, and development.
