The Master of Management curriculum consists of 14 courses for a total of 30.75 credit hours completed over 10 months.

An intensive summer term kicks off the program in June.* Students complete three core courses that are critical for business success and provide foundational knowledge for elective courses. An extensive series of in-depth, hands-on workshops with Ross Career Services gets students prepared for the recruiting season.

During the fall and winter terms, students deepen their business knowledge through additional core courses, and customize their educational experience with electives. Students also have the opportunity to experience our Global Practicum Course, which includes fieldwork abroad (travel location subject to change each year.)

Please check back throughout the year for additional curriculum information.

*The Master of Management program will officially start on June 20, 2016.

Leadership Development
Michigan Ross is synonymous with developing leaders who make a positive difference in the world.

We are home to the Sanger Leadership Center, a center of excellence for leadership development.

Ross is ranked number one in the world for leadership development, due in large part to the Sanger Leadership Center. MM students participate in two Sanger Leadership Center seminars that foster understanding of leadership, ethics, teamwork and how to make a positive difference in today’s complex and dynamic world. These seminars will challenge you to consider your personal leadership style and contemplate the legacy you leave in this world.

Learn by Doing
Action-based learning enhances your MM experience.

At Ross, we believe that the best way to learn is by doing, applying theory and practice to real-world issues, and weaving action-based learning into your studies. Whether inside the classroom or in the field, the leadership skills, teamwork, and broadened worldview that you develop through action will prepare you to land and excel in a fulfilling career.

Course highlights:

BA 453: Action Learning Projects (ALPS) — ALPS partners a team of students together with an organization to provide recommendations to address a real opportunity or challenge that the organization faces. Develop personal capabilities, professional competencies, collaboration skills, and business acumen by integrating and applying knowledge to real-work organizational opportunities and problems.

TO 465: Business Systems Consulting — You’ll be part of a team cast in the role of consultants to an imaginary company. You’ll work from a portfolio of text, graphics, videotape, lecture, spreadsheet models, computer simulations, digitized factory data, and company financial data. Taking an active role in the company’s operations, your team will develop and "sell" a compelling business case of investment in new processes and systems to the company’s management
