As a lifelong Ann Arborite, I knew from the beginning that I would attend the University of Michigan, and the Masters of Management degree at Ross was the perfect opportunity for me to develop my professional skills in an amazing academic setting. I am a former pre-med student who decided his true passion was business. The Master of Management was not only the best opportunity to pursue this passion from an academic perspective but it also provided comprehensive professional knowledge and experience to prepare me for the workforce in just one year. This program is one of the most valuable in the world in terms of what it provides, and as each day passes, I become happier with my decision to enroll in this incredible program. This program offers opportunities to get real-world experience in addition to academic knowledge. The Consulting Studio has been my favorite part of this program so far, as it is giving me invaluable experience that is very unique to Ross. The Career Development Office (CDO) provides an immense amount of resources. It offers anything from the expertise of professionals during the job search process, to peers who are also in the process or have recently gotten a job. The CDO is another invaluable resource that is an incredible part of this program.
