The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan has received many accolades over the years. It is one of only 4 business schools consistently ranked in the top 10 by BusinessWeek since the publication first began tracking business school rankings in 1988. It is also ranked number 2 by BusinessWeek in general management and it can very arguably be considered the best public graduate business school in the country.

The Ross School is situated in Ann Arbor, a town consistently ranked amongst the best places to live in the United States. Ann Arbor has numerous public parks and is conveniently located only 30 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport. The opportunity to take in a Wolverines game in the nation’s largest football stadium is also something that many applicants find enticing.

As nice as the rankings and quality of life are, the most impressive aspect of the Ross School is how well the school differentiates itself. The school’s unique approach – action-based learning and interdisciplinary, team-oriented situations – develops leaders and ideas that change the way business is conducted. Additionally, the school’s curriculum allows for a highly-customized education through an extraordinary range of options and attributes.
