SELF-AUTHORSHIP: LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENTS & EXPERIENCES
Student clubs are a huge part of life at Michigan Ross. Get as involved as you want, with groups that offer great social and professional opportunities as well as the chance to take a leadership role. Some have a professional/academic focus, like the Marketing Club, the BBA Finance Club, or the Healthcare and Life Science Club. Others support and encourage diversity, such as the Black Business Undergraduate Society, Michigan Business Women, and Out For Business. And some are just for fun, like the Ski Club, the Gourmet Club, or Photography at Ross.
Helping Ross Be the Best
You can also gain valuable leadership experience by getting directly involved with making decisions and taking action that help keep Ross among the world’s leading business schools. Run for office in the Ross Student Government Association; participate in the BBA Council, which works as a liaison between Ross undergraduates and the administration; or apply to RUSAB, which advises the administration on academic concerns.
