JUST IN: Two More Top Ten Rankings for Michigan Ross, MM Program Ranked #1 in U.S.


Michigan Ross has placed in the top ten in two new rankings out this week from QS World University Rankings. The publication looked at top MBA and Masters in Management programs across the U.S. and around the globe.

In the latest report, the Master of Management program at Michigan Ross was ranked #1 in the U.S. for the second year in a row, an impressive feat for a program launched in 2014.

The QS rankings look at several factors including employability of graduates, satisfaction level of employers, student diversity, alumni outcomes and job placement rates, and value for the money of each degree, among other factors.

In each category, the Michigan Ross MM program performed well. Ninety-eight percent of the graduating class of 2017 had a job offer within six months of graduation, higher than the global mean for similar MM programs.

The diversity of backgrounds for students in the Master of Management program stands out as well. Among the incoming MM Class of 2019, there are 28 different undergraduate majors, a mix that both adds to the classroom dynamic and appeals to employers.

Norm Bishara, Associate Dean for Undergraduate and Early Career Programs at Ross, spoke with QS about the ranking this week, and highlighted the interdisciplinary backgrounds of MM students.  

“Employers are enthralled with well-rounded candidates,” Bishara told QS. “These graduates are ready for the job market. They have a generalized skillset and a certain level of confidence.”

QS also ranked MBA programs, and the Michigan Ross Full-Time MBA program placed #9 among all U.S. institutions and #15 globally.

Throughout the past year, the Ross Full-Time MBA Program rose in many major rankings that evaluate U.S. business schools — rising 4 spots in U.S. News & World Report (to #7), rising 3 spots in Forbes, rising 2 spots in Poets & Quants, rising 1 spot in Businessweek, and rising 9 spots in The Economist.
