At Ross, we are committed to an approach to business that goes beyond studying cases. So we look for students who want to work on real-world assignments, ranging from strategic analysis to distribution challenges. We seek diversity in the professional backgrounds of our admitted students, just as we do in other parts of our applicants’ profiles. Experience in the areas related to manufacturing, operations, logistics, or supply chain may be considered a plus but is not required.
