I am originally from Michigan and part of the reason I chose Ross was to be back in this state and this town - Ann Arbor is wonderful. I hope to stay in the Detroit area after I graduate from Ross, and I love that this program has found ways to increase the bond between the school and the city. Ross not only offers a number of Detroit focused student clubs, but I am also taking a Real Estate course that frequently uses Detroit as a real world example of changing trends in the market. I am also gay and married, and I cannot say enough positive things about the Ross community. Ross embraces partners like they are students themselves, and it makes a big difference when transitioning to life in Ann Arbor. It was also important to me to be in an MBA program that I felt reflected my own values and Ross truly celebrates the diversity of its students.
