Heather Byrne, Managing Director of the Career Development Office at Michigan Ross, commented in the school’s announcement, “These record-setting results for acceptance rates, offers, and salaries reflect the exceptional quality of our students, the hands-on experiences they receive at Michigan Ross, and the depth of support and connections our Career Development Office provides them.”

Eighty-five percent of the offers and acceptances were school-facilitated by the Career Development Office or sourced on campus.
