【2021年入学用: Test Options】Michigan Ross MBA

2021年出願の際に使用可能なテストとしてあらたにLaw School Admission Test (通称LSAT)とMedical School Admission Test (通称MCAT)が選択肢に加わります。日本人受験生の方々がLSATとMCATを使用して出願することは可能性としても極めて低いことかと思いますが、同校Admmission Directorのメッセージを引用いたします。

From Director Kwon:

“We want to be supportive of prospective students around the world at this time and we recognize that the pandemic has placed limitations on your ability to take the GMAT and GRE. Therefore, we will also accept the MCAT and LSAT in place of the GMAT or GRE this year.

We have accepted those tests for current dual-degree students at the University of Michigan and have found that their performance in the MBA program is comparable to students who took the GMAT or GRE.”

【2019年9月入学用エッセイ課題】U of Michigan (Ross)


One of the things we heard from this year’s applicants was that they loved having the option to choose which essay prompt to respond to. So we’re keeping that feature but providing two options per short answer group rather than three. We kept the ones that seemed to provide the best platform for sharing something meaningful and unique about yourselves. We also made a minor tweak to the career goal essay to make it more straightforward, because that’s what we’re looking for — straightforward.

Here are the essay questions for next year:

Part 1: Short Answer Questions

Select one prompt from each group of the three groups below. Respond to your selected prompt in 100 words or fewer (<100 words each; 300 words total).

Group 1

  • I want people to know that I:
  • I made a difference when I:

​Group 2

  • I was humbled when:
  • I am out of my comfort zone when:

Group 3

  • I was aware that I am different when:
  • I find it challenging when people:

Part 2: Essay

Michigan Ross is a place where people from all backgrounds with different career goals can thrive. Please share your short-term career goal. Why is this the right choice for you? (300 words)

【新カリキュラム:Business Data & Analytics】University of Michigan (Ross School)

Ross Schoolから、新たなカリキュラム内容(New Concentration Focused on Business Data and Analytics)が発表されました。

The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business has announced a new concentration for the Full-Time MBA (FTMBA) degree program. The Data and Business Analytics Concentration is designed for MBA students who are looking to hone their analytical skills to develop data-driven business strategies and recommendations.

The new concentration will be offered beginning in fall 2018 and is the first to launch under the leadership of Associate Dean of Full-Time and Global MBA Programs Brad Killaly. The FTMBA program began developing the concentration in 2017 after receiving feedback from students who desired a more specialized concentration focused on big data.

We’ve developed the Data and Business Analytics Concentration to meet the needs of today’s MBA student as well as today’s evolving business world,” said Killaly. “As students continue to seek careers in data-intensive industries, such as consulting and technology, Michigan Ross will offer the necessary business acumen that students can utilize to give themselves a competitive edge.”

Students are required to take courses from a  wide array of options, including big data management, marketing research, marketing engineering, advanced big data analysis, data mining, digital marketing, mobile innovation development, and information econometrics.

In an era in which analytics can make or break company success, employers are increasingly seeking workers who understand and utilize  business analytics. With this concentration, the FTMBA Program Office is partnering closely with the Career Development Office to ensure MBA students are prepared with the necessary skill set to manage one of today’s most important business issues.

We are excited to introduce the new data and business analytics concentration to the Michigan Ross FTMBA Program,” said Heather Byrne, Director of the Michigan Ross Career Development Office. “Companies want individuals who can lead their organizations using data and thinking analytically. Our goal is to prepare students to explore career options in which they can apply these skills, and help companies source exceptionally-qualified talent.”

Michigan Ross also has MBA concentrations in Business and Sustainability and Healthcare Management, a certificate in Real Estate Development, a Fast Track in Finance, and the Tauber Institute program in operations.
