It has been a while since I last wrote about the University of Michigan Masters in Management program and I think it is time for an update. The program has been operating for a couple of years now and a bunch has changed. Considering how great of a brand and reputation that the University of Michigan has and the number of students asking me about the program, I thought all of you would like some more information on what this program has to offer.
The Michigan MiM has a pretty unique and diverse class profile with 31 different undergraduate majors represented.
- Average GPA – 3.50
- Average GMAT – 668
- % International – 16%
- % Female – 51%
Dual Degree Option
Something extremely unique about this program and something I have never seen before is a dual Masters in Management / Masters in Science in Engineering option. It is designed for non-business majors who graduated within two years of starting the program. This is ideal for anyone who studied engineering during undergrad and who wants a business experience, but also to continue their engineering studies. You can graduate with two masters in two years.
I thought this deserved a section all its own. The program is for non-business students or those who have a business minor. It is also for those with 18 months or less work experience.
FYI – Michigan is currently on rolling admissions under May 1st. Plenty of time to get your application in!
This is what everyone always wants to know. The University of Michigan Masters in Management program put out a pretty detailed placement report. This is always optimal as it allows the individual to really assess what is important for them. I will include the entire report, but some key takeaways include:
- Job Offers – 92% of students within 3 months of graduating
- Geography – National, with a midwestern focus (15% in Chicago Metro, 21% Detroit Metro).
- Roles – Diverse. Technology – 27%,Consulting – 15%, Financial Services/Accounting – 15%.
- Salary – Ranged from $70,000 – $45,000
2016 Hiring Companies (Sample)

- The Boston Consulting Group
- Ford Motor Co.
- General Mills Inc.
- International Business Machines Corp.
- KPMG LLP
- Oracle Corp.
- Sierra Institute
- U.S. Department of State
- U.S. Global Leadership Coalition
As you can see, a range of companies, highlighting consulting, F500, Accounting, Government, etc. This truly is a program where you can build a foundation and decide what you want to do with it. These placements are also much more diverse when compared to a MSF program, which is why someone would want to do a Masters in Management in the first place.
I really like where this program is going, especially compared to their peers (Duke, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Wake Forest, etc). The dual degree option is amazing and the range and quality of placement is really indicative of the Michigan brand and program strength. I’ll work to report more frequently on this program and hope this update helps.
