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.
