Become a Global Ambassador
As a Ross student, you have the unique opportunity to expand your international experience by becoming a Global Ambassador (GA). Each semester, Ross Global Initiatives hosts exchange students from all over the world. These students are often concerned about making friends and adjusting to life at the University. As a Global Ambassador, you will be matched with an incoming exchange student and asked to help him or her feel included in the Ross community. By doing this, you broaden your international perspective, learn about another culture, and gain valuable interpersonal skills that can be marketed on your resume.
36 percent of Ross MBAs are from outside of the United States, creating a unique and diverse learning environment.
GAs will be asked to reach out to their exchange student partners via e-mail before they arrive in Ann Arbor in order to make them feel welcomed to the university. Opportunities include: offering advice on housing, Ann Arbor, and the University of Michigan; greeting students when they arrive; assisting with their initial needs such as shopping for groceries, books, etc.; helping them meet other U-M students; taking the time to get to know about each other's culture, home country,and home school; and participating in some welcome events. Students can choose to be a Global Ambassador for one semester or for the full academic year.
