Michigan Ross Listed Among Most Military Friendly Schools


Michigan Ross has again been listed among the most Military Friendly Schools by rankings organization Victory Media.

Ross was chosen as a Military Friendly school based on the amount of support available to veterans on campus, graduation rates of veteran students, job placement rates, available tuition assistance, and government approvals.

Because Ross is classified as a Yellow Ribbon school, application fees for students in the military and veterans are waived, and most of the unmet tuition of veterans 100 percent eligible for Chapter 33 is covered. Ross do not limit the number of participants and covers all admitted students who are eligible.

Ross’ commitment to military and veteran students runs deep, and since 2012, the Ross MBA program has more than tripled military student enrollment.

Earlier this month, a number of those students shared their experiences in the military with fellow classmates during VetX, Michigan Ross MBA Veteran Leadership Lessons from the Front Lines. You can watch them share their stories via the full video recap (embedded below).

This commitment to military and veteran students at Ross is echoed at the University of Michigan more broadly, where several students groups, including Ross’ Armed Forces Association, have collaborated to bring a wide range of Veterans Day events to campus this year. Here is the full schedule:
