At the Ross School of Business, we offer undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree that prepares them with a well-rounded understanding of all business concepts.

The Ross BBA is a three-year program, which means our students attend a freshman admitting unit at the University of Michigan during their first year on campus and start the BBA curriculum at the beginning of their second year at U-M. In order to obtain admission to the Ross BBA Program, high school seniors must apply through the Common Application to the University of Michigan and indicate their interest in Preferred Admission to the Ross BBA program.

We conduct a holistic review of each application, and there is no special formula for a good candidate. Interviews are not part of the admission process. In general, we look for outstanding academics, quality extracurricular activities, and compelling application essays.  

You apply in one of three ways:

  1. Preferred admission:
    For exceptional high school students
  2. Regular admission:
    For current U-M students
  3. Transfer admission: 
    For candidates from other schools
