Living Business

Living Business offers Ross School of Business first-year students a residential community that champions the goals and values of Ross. Living Business aims to create a strong cohort of Ross advocates that represent diverse backgrounds and interests, and who are highly engaged throughout their time at Ross.

Student residents have access to community programming that encourages them to think meaningfully about the school’s mission to “build a better world through business.” Residents will also gain an enhanced academic experience, a supportive community, and professional skill development by networking with alumni and local entrepreneurs and engaging in off-campus experiential learning. Residing in the Living Business Theme Community is a unique opportunity for first-year students to connect with their cohort in a non-academic setting, while taking advantage of co-curricular activities that further their familiarity and involvement with Ross.
