UM: Business School

Bloomberg Businessweek publishes a Q&A with Soojin Kwon Koh, admissions director for UM’s Ross School of Business, who describes what the school is looking for in its applicants. She also talks about some of the school’s recruiting challenges: “One of the challenges for some people may be that it is in the Midwest [and] they think they will be disconnected from large metropolitan areas, that they won’t have the access to recruiters that you would get if you went to school on one of the coasts. That’s one of the misconceptions that I wanted to dispel. [After graduating], a quarter to a third of our students go to the East Coast, about a quarter go to the West Coast, primarily to the Bay Area. Very few people, I would say only a handful, stay in Michigan or come from Michigan.” [Source]
