At Ross, we understand time is a valuable asset for corporate managers and their sponsors. Thus, we’ve designed the Global MBA Program to span 16 continuous months with no summer break. In this way, we minimize the amount of time students are away from the job.
The rigorous Global MBA core is identical to the other MBA programs at Ross, but it is sequenced to meet the unique needs of corporate-sponsored students. We do our best to ease students into the high-energy and collegial culture at Ross as they develop key knowledge and skills in every business function.
The program begins with an introduction to written and oral managerial communications. These courses stress fundamental theories and strategies needed for effective communication in diverse management situations.
The curriculum continues with quantitative courses and gradually adds non-quantitative courses that require more classroom discussion and collaboration.
Students complete the required courses of the Ross MBA core in the first two terms — three months in Asia (with one month each in Korea, Japan, and China) and three months in Ann Arbor. Upon completing the core, students are free to pursue a wide variety of electives. The program concludes with the seven-week Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) requirement.
