Michigan Ross Ranked #4 for ‘Best Value’ Undergraduate Business Programs


A new report out this week from online college affordability publication Value Colleges ranks the Michigan Ross Bachelor of Business Administration program among the most valuable undergraduate business programs in the U.S.

The Ross BBA program placed 4th in the ranking.

The report looked at three criteria to determine which U.S. business programs offered the best value to students: tuition costs, career and salary outcomes for graduates, and an aggregate of other rankings and student reviews.

“When it comes to choosing a business degree, there are plenty of opportunities for bad investments,” Value Colleges said in their report. “[These] are not those schools. This formula hits the sweet spot between the most relevant, innovative education and the most reasonable investment for the highest return.”

Graduates of the Ross BBA program start to feel that return almost immediately. In the most recent employment report from Michigan Ross, 98 percent of BBA graduates from the class of 2018 had a job within three months of graduation, earning a median base salary of $72,000.

With the help of generous financial aid packages, the cost to attend Michigan Ross is attainable for all students. Two out of every three U-M undergraduate students receive some sort of assistance, with more than $520 million in scholarships and fellowships being distributed to undergraduate students each year.

For Michigan residents, the cost to attend can be significantly impacted by the Go Blue Guarantee, which provides residents with family incomes of up to $180,000 with tuition support, and up to four years of free tuition for families with income of $65,000 or less.

The ranking from Value Colleges is just the latest in a number of high recognitions for Michigan and the Ross undergraduate business program, which was recently ranked #4 in the Poets&Quants ranking of best BBA programs, #1 for entrepreneurship by the Princeton Review and #3 in terms of study abroad opportunities available for undergraduate students.
