At Michigan Ross, your goals are supported by one of the strongest women’s networks among business schools.

This representation is illustrated throughout the Ross community, where 41% of leadership roles and 56% of professional clubs are led by women, and 42% of clubs are led or co-led by women.

As a Ross student, you’ll enjoy an enriching academic environment, take on leadership roles, build relationships within a supportive community of peers, and emerge with the knowledge, experience, and versatility to thrive in your career. You’ll find that the Michigan Business Women club is one of Ross’ largest student groups and benefit from its annual Women in Leadership conference, plus our longstanding relationship with Forté Foundation will connect you with a network of over 50,000 women across leading companies and business schools.

After you graduate, you’ll continue to be supported as a Ross alumna. Not only will you join a network of more than 50,000 alumni in over 100 countries, you’ll also be prosperous in your career. 

We encourage prospective students to connect with women at Ross. More than 80 current female students are available to talk with you about their experience as women at Ross, address your concerns, or answer any questions you may have.
