Michigan Ross Named One of The Top U.S. MBA Programs For Female Students


The Michigan Ross Full-Time MBA program was recently ranked among the Top U.S. Business Schools for Female Students — a recognition of a strong commitment made by Ross to work to improve gender diversity in business schools. 

The new ranking, from CEOWorld Magazine, an international business publication catering to C-suite executives around the globe, evaluated universities across the United States to compile its list of the best places for females to pursue their MBA. The publication emphasizes that times are changing, and while MBA programs used to be dominated by males, there are many more female students aspiring to become management leaders. 

At Michigan Ross, the Class of 2020 includes the highest number of women to ever be a part of a Ross MBA class. But female representation goes deeper than diverse classroom demographics.

Ross women love to take charge — 41 percent of leadership roles and 56 percent of professional clubs were led by women during the most recent academic year. And the annual Women in Leadership Conference, hosted by Michigan Business Women, brings together more than 300 students, alumni, industry leaders, and prospective MBA students for a three-day conference focused on personal and professional development. 

That connection and support extends off campus as well. Female MBA students at Ross are part of a strong, interconnected network stemming from a long-standing relationship with the Forté Foundation that connects women in the Michigan Ross Full-Time MBA program with more than 50,000 women across top companies and business schools.
