Learn By Doing

Our hands-on, team-based approach to leadership development demands that Global MBA students collaborate with classmates and faculty on multifaceted projects. Michigan Ross students learn and work hard. They learn and work fast. And they learn and work together. Lasting ties are formed on weekend excursions during the Asia Session. Perfect strangers become lifelong friends after teaming on class projects. Students at Michigan Ross collaborate and connect in fascinating ways. Global MBA students may:

  • participate in more than 70 clubs, organizations, and social activities
  • initiate new projects to advance leadership and career goals
  • serve as a committee chair or serve on a committee to plan school wide events and conferences
  • plan or attend special events that bring leaders from businesses and other organizations to campus
  • play sports by joining a Michigan Ross club or a University of Michigan intramural team
  • be part of a long-standing tradition by attending a University of Michigan football game

The rigorous Global MBA core is identical to the other MBA programs at Ross, but it is sequenced to meet the unique needs of corporate-sponsored students who will return to their companies after graduation.

The program begins with an introduction to written and oral managerial communications.

It continues with quantitative courses and gradually adds non-quantitative courses that require more classroom discussion and collaboration.

Students complete the required courses of the Ross MBA core in the first two terms — three months in Asia (with one month each in Korea, Japan, and China) and three months in Ann Arbor. Upon completing the core, students are free to pursue a wide variety of electives. The program concludes with the seven-week Multidisciplinary Action Projects requirement.

The broad-based management approach at Ross delivers an integrated view of business. Our focus on action-based learning brings you the tools and hands-on experience to lead change, drive innovation, and implement creative solutions. At Ross, you have the flexibility to focus studies on a specific area or broaden studies over a variety of disciplines.
