University of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business is ranked the eighth-best undergraduate business school in the U.S. by Bloomberg Businessweek.

While that's a drop from recent rankings, Ross boasts a 93.8 percent internship rate, the third-best among the schools surveyed by Bloomberg, according to a recent Crain's Detroit Business report.

Ninety-one percent of graduates receive job offers within three months of graduating, with an average salary of $63,000, according to the Bloomberg rankings.

The school dropped from its 2012 seventh-place ranking and its 2011 sixth-place ranking. Over the past seven years it has ranked as high as 4 and as low as 8.

The University of Notre Dame maintained its No. 1 ranking on the list, a position it has now held for four years. The average graduate of Notre Dame's business school earns $58,100. University of Virginia's business school ranks second and is the only public university to outpace U-M in the rankings.

In fall 2012 Ross' undergraduate program was ranked No. 3 nationally by U.S. News and World Report. U.S. News ranks the school's graduate program 14th in the nation.

And guess what the internship rates are for the OTHER university, down the road 4 miles?? Job offices and internships etc. are the FIRST thing to look at when picking a college. It would not have been that much more expensive for me to have gone to U of M. No one out of state has heard of the other university starting with an E that I attended.. job prospects if your not a teacher or cop? rental car agency, .. crap jobs dead end stuff, no continuity uh yeah. Think people before taking out loans, visit, look at job offices.
