As a global organization itself, Michigan's Ross School of Business leads the way in developing
students' global perspective. Our range of
programs, international curriculum, special courses, and numerous regional
studies centers across the University combine with our world-class faculty and
diverse student body to give Michigan an edge in educating for cross-cultural
commerce. At the core is the wealth of knowledge and experiences our students
bring from around the world.
For those students coming from outside the U.S., the University and Ross
School of Business offer several invaluable
resources to provide you with significant support throughout your time at Michigan,

student-run clubs and
organizations that represent the interests of international students. From groups like the
Business Association to the European Business Club, international student
clubs provide the platform for networking and job search assistance. In addition, the clubs are a

citizens to developing rich contacts with recruiters interested in hiring
international students. OCD also offers meetings, workshops and specific
courses to discuss international career search issues and working in new
environments. International students are able to secure Curricular
