Master of Management Program Expands to China


The University of Michigan has partnered with Shanghai Jiao Tong University to offer Ross’ new Master of Management degree to select Chinese engineering students.

Ross Dean Alison Davis-Blake and SJTU representatives took part in a special event on May 22 in Shanghai to launch the new collaboration. “As a global business school, partnerships such as this are key to providing a world-class business education and giving our students direct experience in the global economy,” Davis-Blake said.

The new program for the SJTU engineering students began in July. Students studied accounting concepts in China before departing for nine months of study at Ross as part of the Master of Management Program in Ann Arbor. The SJTU students will conclude the program with a seven-week, action-based learning capstone project led by Ross faculty at a multinational corporation based in China.

The expansion also will create new opportunities for faculty research and student exchange between Ross and the SJTU Antai College of Economics and Management.
