The Ross Multidisciplinary Action Projects course is one of the most intense, student-driven learning experience in business education.

Teams of students tackle pressing business challenges for sponsor organizations - major corporations, startups, and nonprofits all over the world. At the heart of MAP is a mutually beneficial collaboration between students, faculty, and sponsor organizations. MAP is one of the world’s most extensive and intensive partnerships in action-based learning.

The Benefits of Sponsorship

  • Get a fresh look at your business issue from an unbiased team.
  • Receive thorough, data-driven recommendations.
  • Gain exposure to the latest business tools and techniques practiced by senior faculty and top students.
  • Build relationships with Ross students, reinforcing recruiting strength.

Which MAP is Right for You?

MAP is a central element of most of the degree programs at Michigan Ross. That means your student team could be talented undergraduates tapped into a Generation Z mindset, energetic millennials with several years of practical business experience, or seasoned executives in supervisory roles. In addition, different MAP programs take place at different times of the year. We’ll work with you to match your needs to the MAP program that provides the best fit.
