With programs in Ann Arbor and throughout central and southeast Asia, Ross Executive Education connects theory to practice through open-enrollment and custom programs that address specific business needs, develop individuals, and strengthen the organizations in which they work.

India Initiatives

The India Initiatives builds on the strong bonds nurtured with India over the past 18 years through faculty scholarship, custom executive education, student in-country learning experiences, and alumni and corporate outreach.

MAP program

First-year Ross MBA students devote themselves exclusively to a MAP (Multidisciplinary Action Project) for a half semester each spring as a requirement of the MBA core curriculum. About half of our full-time MBA MAPs each year are international.


The Tauber Institute, a partnership between the Ross School and U-M's College of Engineering, provides the necessary tools to succeed in an operations, supply chain, or manufacturing career for MBA, MSCM, and graduate-level engineering students.
