Let’s Do Business

There’s logic behind the phrase “do business.” It’s an active process — just like our curriculum.

The Michigan Ross curriculum throws you right into the action, excitement, and risk inherent in business. You'll tap into the power of business to improve lives, benefit society, and drive powerful change. You'll learn why diverse perspectives are critical to organizations. And you’ll analyze strategy, apply business concepts, oversee projects, and build connections between business and the world. After all, you don’t come to Michigan Ross to be a spectator. You come to be a leader.

Finding a Study Group Is Easy Thanks to Our Unique Cohort Model

You’ll move through your core classes with a group of around 80 students you can lean on, learn from, and navigate Ross with. Each year, a carefully crafted Signature Learning Experience (SLE) adds another level of engagement to your coursework. The Ross Integrative Semester, for example, is the third-year SLE that highlights a business theme you’ll cover in every class, and concludes with a week-long entrepreneurial challenge where you can showcase what you’ve learned.
