What kind of jobs can you get out of Ross? How is the recruiting there?

<p>Assuming you graduate near the top of your class in Ross (let's say top 10%) what kind of job opportunities will you get? How is the pay? I know it depends on your major but just a general answer...</p>

<p>Top 10% of your class doesn't guarantee you a good job. In addition to academic performance, you need to learn how to prepare for interviews and know how to network effectively. Do all of the above well and you shouldn't have a problem.</p>

<p>You can find all this information on the Ross website.</p>

<p>It's not really as much about top 10%, as the average GPA is a 3.6 in Ross, and it'll probably be higher from now on since they switched the accounting curve to have the median be a B+ from a B- in the past. So, the GPA doesn't really matter as much because most people have a high GPA in Ross. What matters more is your course load [did you just bs your way through (eg. take easy LSA classes)], or take more rigorous classes. Leadership positions in clubs matter as well. As stated above, networking with people and knowing your technicals and fit questions for the job you want is always a plus.</p>

<p>What makes you say that? If someone's a BBA they're taking a large number of BS (according to the few people I know who are in the B-School) classes anyway. Why would harder classes make someone more attractive to a firm which isn't looking for that anyway?</p>

<p>Believe it or not, but you actually can learn quite a bit from certain bschool electives. But at the end of the day, what matters most is that you are knowledgeable about it and can talk about it so whether you learn it on your own time or through a course is up to you. This applies mostly to finance jobs.</p>

<p>I was just trying to say that people with 3.5+ who dual degree or do math minors or other such things look better than people who take just geosci classes and other easy courses to boost their GPA. And most of the people who look at resumes for Michigan were previous Michigan/Ross people, so they know how the system works and what people do to boost GPA.</p>

<p>I do agree you can learn a lot from elective courses, I was talking more about people who take really easy courses other than the core.</p>

<p>Okay but assuming you do all this the "right" way, whatever way it is to put yourself in a good position to recruiters, the question still stands, what kind of job offers will you receive?</p>
