Michigan Ross MBA Admissions Criteria
The Michigan Ross MBA Admissions Committee seeks to bring together talented students from a broad range of academic and professional backgrounds. Applications are reviewed holistically by Michigan Ross; no single factor – e.g., GPA, GMAT/ GRE score, or years of work experience — determines the outcome. Applications are reviewed with three broad criteria in mind.
Michigan Ross will review your undergraduate record, graduate record (if applicable), GMAT &/or GRE score(s), and TOEFL score (if applicable) to assess:
- your ability to succeed academically
- the degree to which you have challenged yourself throughout your education
- your quantitative background – we expect all incoming students to have a working knowledge of college-level math
- your English language ability
Professional and Personal Achievements
The Michigan Ross MBA Admissions Committee will review your resume, recommendation letter, and interview (if invited) to assess:
- your career path and progression
- your contributions, achievements and impact
- your potential to succeed in your desired career path
Interpersonal, Communication and Teamwork Skills
Through a one-on-one interview (by invitation only) and the Team Exercise (optional) the Michigan Ross MBA Admissions Committee will evaluate:
- your ability to communicate and present yourself well in a professional setting
- your ability to engage in a team-setting and work collaboratively
Refer to the MBAPrepAdvantage post MBA Admissions Criteria for a more in-depth analysis on how business school admissions committees evaluate your candidacy.
