JUST IN: Michigan Ross Repeats As No. 1 Best Administered MBA Program, Earns No. 1 for Greatest Women’s Resources in 2022 Princeton Review Rankings
The Ross School of Business was recently ranked No.1 for the Best Administered MBA program for the second consecutive year, while also being recognized as No. 1 for Greatest Resources for Women, according to the Princeton Review.
Best administered MBA program
The Princeton Review’s rankings for best administered on-campus MBA program are based on student ratings of how smoothly their business schools are run and how easy it is to get into required and popular courses.
“We put the quality of the student experience at the center of all we do,” said Soojin Kwon, managing director of Full-Time MBA Admissions and Program at Michigan Ross. “The Full-Time MBA team cares deeply about our students' experience before, during, and after they arrive at Ross. We value the relationships we have with them and strive to provide a highly supportive and personalized experience — from the application stage through graduation.”
Greatest resources for women
The publication’s greatest resources for women rankings are based on school data, including the percentage of students and faculty who are female, along with students’ assessment of resources for female students, coursework for women entrepreneurs, and whether case study materials for classes proportionately reflect women in business.
"Michigan Ross has continuously supported women to succeed in all aspects of personal, academic, and career progression,” said Anisha Kapoor, MBA ’22, co-president of Michigan Business Women at Ross. “Through clubs such as Michigan Business Women and Women Who Launch, Ross centers and institutes, and other student- and program-led experiences, women feel connected to the community. These events, groups, and lecture series promote visibility, relationships, and involvement among women as evidenced by the women in leadership positions in clubs, sections, MBA Council, and Ross administration."
At Michigan Ross, women make up 68% of club leadership. In addition, the last four student body presidents were women, and eight of 10 section presidents are currently women.
