Beyond the MBA Classroom: Ross Follies

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also making a commitment to a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Not to be missed, the Ross Follies is an entertaining evening of student-produced and -performed theatrical skits held at the Michigan Theatre during winter term. Attended by students, faculty members and staff of the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, the show is a chance for first and second years to show off some of their talents—anyone can participate in the production, even members of the faculty and administration. The 2013 show, entitled “The Rosscars: A Night to Remember?,” marked the 27th anniversary of the production and included such sketches as “MBA Hoarders” and a business school–inspired musical rendition of “I Don’t Want to Grow Up.” Follies themes from years past have included “Imported from Ann Arbor” and “It’s Always Funny in Follydelphia.” Inside jokes, spoofs on life at Ross and heartfelt acting ensure that the show is enjoyed year in and year out.
