Michigan Ross is synonymous with excellence in leadership development.
Whether inside the classroom or out in the field, it's essential that leadership is a key component of your learning experience. Recognizing that leadership is integral business, the Michigan Ross MM Program delivers the leadership essentials that will prepare you to excel in any area of business and beyond.
Immerse in Leadership
Top-ranked leadership development at Ross is typified by our Sanger Leadership Center, which the MM Program partners with to offer action-based seminars that help you build the character and skills to excel:
Leadership Style Workshop
In your orientation as an MM student, discover your personal leadership style and explore how to best navigate and interact with other leadership styles. This fun, interactive session is a touchstone throughout your time at Ross. You'll find yourself referencing actions or statements as reflective of a certain leadership style, helping you strategize how to best approach that viewpoint.
Craft your personal narrative and discover how to identify and articulate moments of significant impact. This resource is particularly valuable as you interview for jobs.
Contemplate the legacies left by those before you and the legacy that you want to leave behind. You'll engage in an introspective look at your life and how you want to live the rest of your years.
Together, these workshops are a powerful combination that you'll both enjoy and benefit from as you prepare to enter industry. You'll learn the importance of your actions and rise to the challenge of being a leader in everyday life — skills that will serve you well professionally and personally for a lifetime.

You can seek a position within one of Ross' 70-plus student-run organizations while serving on the board of one of our centers and institutes, making important decisions that impact the rest of the student body and future of the school.
