Michigan Ross will help you to find the right career in finance.

MAP and select courses will prepare you with the knowledge and skills you need. You can jump-start your education with our Fast Track in Finance and get hands-on experience managing one of our student-led venture funds. Dedicated Career Services support, engaged alumni, peer coaches, and the Ross Finance Club will help you make the right connections – and find the right job.


Fast Track in Finance

The Fast Track in Finance program prepares you to succeed in careers requiring analytical thinking and financial acumen. Depending on your background and performance on assessments designed by Ross, you will progress through relevant courses quickly to enable you to successfully compete for internships requiring these skills.

This highly selective program offers the best of both worlds: You begin finance courses as soon as you start at Ross, while still taking full advantage of the signature aspects of our general management core curriculum. There are two different tracks in the program, both of which require you to waive the core accounting course (ACC 502).
