Having worked as a Corporate Real Estate professional on strategic real estate planning, I was looking to diversify and expand my strategic thinking, problem solving, and leadership and innovation skills to move into general management roles with greater strategic responsibility. The Ross MBA program has provided me the perfect opportunity to build a strong foundation in management strategies by enhancing my knowledge base of different functional areas through an extensive Core and Elective curriculum and access to exceptional faculty. At Ross, we live and breathe action based learning. Participating in MAP, Sanger Leadership Initiatives and Washington Campus has made my MBA experience truly rewarding, immersive and non-traditional. It has allowed me to gain a strong global perspective while positioning myself as a creative problem solver with a “big-picture” perspective and strong decision making skills. The diverse and dynamic Ross community encourages a culture of collaboration and inclusion and has helped me build a strong network fostering my leadership and professional development by letting me work across the boundaries.
