The Ross School of Business interview policy is 75% "closed" and 25% "open."
Second Round Interviews
- Please offer multiple options for off-site interview events so that a student’s candidacy is never adversely affected by prioritizing campus activities
- Students do not have classes on Fridays, potentially reducing conflicts. Alternatively, contact your Industry Relations Manager for local second round interview venues, which can alleviate conflicts
- If you must rescind an offer, please contact your Industry Relations Manager so we may offer assistance to your recruiting team and to the students
- Students are urged to immediately release offers they do not plan to accept. The Industry Relations Team considers reneging on offers a serious breach of both our recruiting policies and the honor code, and students are so counseled. Such an action receives immediate attention.
Grades & Disclosure
MBA, MM & MAcc: The Stephen M. Ross School of Business does not evaluate its MBA, MM and MAcc students using a traditional point-based grading scale. In order to better encourage collaborative, action-based learning, and academic exploration and co-creation, faculty assess students using notations of EX (Excellent), GD (Good), PS (Pass), and LP (Low Pass). Accordingly, grade point averages (GPA) for these students will not be found on their transcripts or searchable resumes (“Default Resume”) in the Ross iMpact database.
For the purpose of determining academic honors for MBA, MM and MAcc students, the school converts grades into value points and a figure which is not the same as a strictly calculated GPA average is calculated for each student. To graduate with High Distinction, a student’s value point average must be between 3.5 and 4.0. To graduate with Distinction, the average must be between 3.25 and 3.499. Students are eligible to indicate “Candidate for Graduation with Distinction / High Distinction” upon completing 30 credit hours. Class rank is not calculated. The scale is as follows:
- Excellent = A+, A = 4 value points
- Good = A- = 3 value points
- Pass = B+, B = 2 value points
- Low Pass = B-, C+, C, C- = 1 value point
- Fail = D, E, NR = 0 value points
Michigan's Ross School of Business does not prohibit its MBA, MM and MAcc students from disclosing grades during an interview.
Students can generate unofficial Ross transcripts for recruiters. Accordingly, if you will require an official transcript for interview purposes, please be sure to announce this in advance. Students may require several days to secure their transcripts from their undergraduate alma maters.
BBA: Our BBA program operates with a conventional 4.00 GPA, and therefore BBA students are eligible to indicate GPA on their resume.
