OT: Question for Ross School of Business Grads...

Submitted by Michael From TC on March 20th, 2012 at 3:25 PM

My gf is looking into Ross and was wondering if any of you have any pointers or would be willing to chat with her a little about what to expect / things to look out for.

Anything would be nice, I know that there are a few of you out there that post here regularly.


Let me know so I can get you in touch with her.


Thanks in advance.

My Ross BBA was 15 years ago so I'm sure things have changed since then.  Regardless, one enormous benefit is/was Career Services.  I felt much better prepared for interviews and that I had better access to good jobs than my friends with Economics degrees.  Getting a BBA might be a poor use of resources for some like someone mentioned above.  But if none of the other majors are appealing and an MBA might not be a priority down the road then a BBA could be the way to go.  I got an MBA from Berkeley and was better prepared for classes than the non-BBAs and could focus on other things because of that but did have to repeat a few things too.  Getting into the BBA program is more than just grades.  Leadership in clubs, etc is also important.
