Michigan Ross summer analyst placement information

Hey guys,

Here's a list of Michigan Ross's summer analyst placement information for this year. I figure that some of you might be interested in this information. How does it stack up against other similar target state schools?

Note: this is ONLY for IBD. It does not include S&T, AM, PWM, etc.

Edit: Apparently I left out a few key firms. I'll update my list and come back with a conclusive version.

this is not definitive/accurate in terms of number, at least for one bank.

Jun 6, 2013 - 5:38pm

Seems pretty accurate. I believe there are 6 Citi IBD from Ross (5 NY, 1 Chicago) as well as 6 Goldman IBD. Also another person in Evercore and another in MS that probably didn't fill the survey and who knows who else.

I also know for a fact at least 1 of the JPM was in IBD, not sure about the other 6. There were also at least 2 UBS interns in IBD.

Internship Placement out of Michigan Ross? (Originally Posted: 02/13/2017)

I'm deciding between undergraduate programs at different schools. After not getting into Fordham, Northeastern, and Boston College, I am choosing between Michigan Ross (pre-admit) and possibly NYU Stern. As of now, I am interested in pursuing and learning more about IBD but would like to put myself in an environment where I can grow and change interests but still be able to do well coming out of college.

How is internship placement/recruiting coming out of Michigan Ross? I know most BB's and elite boutiques recruit from there, but how competitive is it to get an interview and ultimately a summer internship in NYC? What do most Ross undergraduates do to make themselves more competitive in the recruiting process?

Jun 6, 2013 - 5:44pm

Lmao how did you get into Ross and Stern but not Gabelli and Carroll?? Any ways, Ross places very good, its obviously going to be competitive, you can't slack off but if you put in the work you will be just fine. Keep your grades up, join clubs and do EC's. Like you said, there are plenty of banks that recruit there so you'll be in a good position. Just as good or if not better at Stern already being in heart of it all.

Jun 6, 2013 - 5:45pm

Agreed with above -- you got into the two best schools out of the five you listed, so no reason to feel down. Ross placement is lights out at the top, just do a quick LI search and you will see that you can go anywhere you want with that degree.

I will defer to anyone who has attended Ross as far as recruiting advice, but I think they operate similarly to IU Kelley insofar as they have some sort of a finance club that serves as a kind of intra-Ross signal that you are legit. I would make sure to identify and target those sort of feeder programs ASAP.

I can confirm these for S&T/Markets Related undergrad in Ross if OP wants to add these, have included all the big ones that came to campus. These are people that have accepted:

Citi (Capital Markets) - 3 (1) [4 total]
DB - 1
GS - believe they gave superdays but no one is going
Barclays - 1
MS (Equity Research) - 2-3 (2) [4-5 total]
RBC - 1-2
BNP- 4-5
RBS- unknown
CS- targeted club recruiting, don't know of anyone going
Wells Fargo - 1

^These are all for NYC. I think there are a handful going to other places (Hong Kong, etc.), but I'm not sure about those. Also, a handful going to prop shops/other firms like BP trading.

There are probably some more, but these are the ones I for sure know of.

Except as far as I can tell, the list is completely accurate and "Some Unknown" was the mistaken one.

BAML indeed stopped OCR, and I can also confirm that this will be for quite some time. But they did take someone who had done a summer in wealth there. The GS figures are accurate. JPM is accurate.

1) I should clarify that I absolutely don't know a single thing about SEO placement (and frankly, have never considered it true placement since you aren't recruited by the firm or go through campus recruiting, you are placed at a firm after an internal ranking process within SEO) so that accounts for some of my numbers being inaccurate.

2) I also know nothing about recruiting for the Asia offices since it's a process conducted separately from standard OCR.

3) I have zero clue how sophomores did, nor do I think that really factors into proper OCR numbers since sophomores are ineligible for OCR given their graduation date.

Qatalyst: cool, amazing firm and good to hear someone made it there.

Evercore: simply said I knew two for sure.

As I said, I will be at one of these (again, the classic "GS/MS/JPM" bucket to protect anonymity) and did not intend to come across aggressively. Simply trying to share information with what facts I knew for certain. Given the three caveats I just shared above, I think it's pretty evident his list and mine match up quite well. Enjoy.
