Michigan Ross and Poets & Quants are pleased to announce their first annual interactive MBA panel event.

The live and live-streaming program will be hosted by John Byrne from Poets & Quants and will include admissions directors from Michigan Ross, Berkeley Haas, and Yale School of Management; executives from top companies; and MBA program graduates.

May 1, 2018, 9 a.m. - noon
at Michigan Ross in Ann Arbor, and available for live-streaming.


Three distinct panels will address key issues for MBA candidates:

Vetting top-ranked MBA programs, choosing the program that fits your goals

Assessing your chances of getting in, hearing from top decision-makers at Michigan Ross, Berkeley Haas, and Yale School of Management

Looking behind the curtain, what top employers really look for from MBAs

How do I get to/from the airport?

Airport: Detroit Metro Airport (DTW).

Detroit is a Delta airlines hub, but it is also served by most major airlines. It is a 30-minute drive from U-M campus.

We recommend booking a seat on the AirRide/Michigan Flyer, which offers one-way fare of $12. The bus picks up/drops off at the Blake Transit Center near central campus (about a 15-minute walk from Ross).

As an alternative, an Uber or Lyft ride from the airport to Ann Arbor typically cost $35-$45.

Where should I stay in Ann Arbor?

Please note you are responsible for finding and securing your own accommodations. Hotels near campus include:

Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel, 3200 Boardwalk St. Ann Arbor, MI 48108

The Graduate Hotel, 615 East Huron St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104


How will I get to Ross?

If you choose to rent a car or drive, we can offer validated parking at the Forest Street parking structure.  Please retain your original ticket along with our validation ticket (provided at check in) for payment.
