In June, the Global MBA class moves to the Ross School of Business campus in Ann Arbor to complete the program. From June through August, you continue completing the MBA core curriculum to satisfy degree requirements before two full terms of elective courses.
Each June, students from two Global MBA cohorts convene in Ann Arbor, one beginning their 13 month stay, the other near the end of it. The students who experienced Ann Arbor over the last 12 months are eager to share their knowledge and help the newcomers settle into the new environment. The overlap offers a great opportunity for students from different graduating classes to get to know each other and further expand their network.
From September to April of the following year, Global MBA students are free to explore a vast array of topics through more than 110 elective options. During this period, you are fully integrated with students in other Ross programs, including the two-year MBA, part-time MBA, the Master of Accounting, and the Master of Supply Chain Management. You interact with more of the Ross School’s acclaimed faculty and are able to deepen your mastery of the fundamentals by examining issues across business disciplines and perspectives.
In May and June of the final year, the Ann Arbor session concludes with the seven-week Multidisciplinary Action Projects course. During MAP, student teams consult with firms to deliver actionable solutions to organizational challenges. You can use MAP to tailor your MBA experience. You may seek out new industries or functions, or use the course to get an inside view of a startup or incubator.
While in Ann Arbor, Global MBA students participate in all kinds of events and opportunities offered at Ross, including workshops, student clubs, conferences, and speaker series.
