Go Beyond the Boundaries of the Traditional Classroom.

Prepare to learn business the same way you’ll lead it: across platforms, formats, and locations. You’ll actively collaborate with peers and faculty online — including through regularly scheduled live sessions — and solve challenges together during short-term residencies on campus. 

The Ross Online MBA curriculum is focused on three learning methods:

Engaged Learning 

Let interactive coursework enrich your experience.​

Coursework includes a variety of interactive learning formats, including frequent knowledge checks that allow you and your instructor to monitor your progress and determine where you need further support. 

Social Learning

Make meaningful connections with Ross faculty and fellow students.

Role-playing and group assignments facilitate collaboration during your courses. During in-person residencies, you’ll work with your classmates in person.

Action-Based Learning

Apply your coursework to the real world. 

On-campus residencies test your ability to manage real and simulated business challenges, and during your MAP course, you’ll solve a problem for a real organization.

From professors whose work has influenced government policy decisions, to faculty members working closely with business executives across the world every day, the list of professors lined up to teach in the Ross Online MBA program is pretty impressive.

Sritheja Gulukota"I was surprised by the level of interaction in the synchronous sessions despite being virtual! The professors conduct lectures from what seems like a TNT halftime studio with an open space and all of our webcam feeds on the TV behind them."
