Ross (Michigan) School of Business

Ross School of Business boasts the largest cohort of veterans and teachers to date. Ross's signature Multidisciplinary Action Project (MAP) course is the sole focus of a first-year student's winter term. Working with a team of peers and faculty advisers, students spend seven weeks on a full-time, real-world project of a sponsor organization and are required to deliver outcomes tied to recommendations.

The Patricia W. Mitchell Trusts made a $5 million donation in June 2019 to establish the Mitchell Program for Business Ethics and Communications, the first gift of its kind to support faculty in business ethics. Ross is named after billionaire alumni Stephen Ross who has donated $378 million to Michigan over the years, including $50 million in 2017.
