The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan is a vibrant and distinctive learning community grounded in the principle that business can be an extraordinary vehicle for positive change in today's dynamic global economy.

At the Ross School of Business, our mission is to develop leaders who make a positive difference in the world. Through thought and action, members of the Ross community drive change and innovation that improves business and society.

The Ross difference describes both how we lead and the kind of leaders we create. At Ross, we believe:

  • Through positive business practices, the potential of people and firms will be realized and society's most pressing problems will be addressed.
  • Solutions are not confined to one sector, function, or type of person, and that true innovation comes from aboundaryless approach to problem solving.
  • Analytic rigor must be the foundation for all business decision making in the 21st century.
  • Business acumen consists of a set of knowledge and skills that can only be developed by bridging the gap between theory and practice and engaging in action-based learning.
