At Ross, we believe that organizational advancement requires a strong catalyst — you.

Whether you’re a seasoned or high-potential leader, you have a vision for the future. But bringing that vision to life requires managing complexity, making strategic decisions, and leading others for powerful results.

This type of dexterity doesn’t just happen — it must be mastered. Named one of the Financial Times’ elite 11 providers, Ross Executive Education programs provide deep insight and forward-thinking approaches from the world’s leading business thinkers. Our faculty emphasize an action-based curriculum that fuses proven research and practical application. This means you won’t just read and talk about effective business practices — you’ll actually deploy them. Highly interactive sessions, simulations, and real business projects give you the skills to immediately apply advanced new concepts to your work.

To get a full sense of what we have to offer, explore participant feedback or visit Ross Thought in Action to catch a glimpse into the latest research from Michigan Ross thought leaders. Articles, videos, and interviews with faculty and global business leaders provide keen insight into today’s most pressing business challenges.

Finally, we encourage you to learn more about the Ross Distinguished Leader Executive Certificate Program. Loyalty discounts, tailored learning paths, networking opportunities, and recognition from a global leader in business education are just a few of the reasons many participants choose to pursue a Ross certificate.

No matter your leadership goals, we are confident Ross Executive Education will help you transform your organization and your career.
