Junior Year fall: ross Integrative Semester
In this unified semester, unique to Michigan Ross, you explore the connections between different business disciplines by studying one set of cases in all four classes, from multiple points of view.

Taught by the case method, from the perspective of a general manager, this course provides a structure for integrating analytic concepts and techniques. You will experience a wide variety of strategic and organizational problems in businesses of all sizes.

If you have a strong academic interest in addition to business, as a Ross BBA you may be able to pursue a second bachelor’s degree or a minor in another subject. It can be a great way to further round out your education, broaden your outlook, and open up additional career options.
