Winter Break Courses
Ross Global Initiatives works with faculty to offer several international programs during Winter Break. These programs offer students the opportunity to have an international experience at Ross without interfering with their course of study or summer internship possibilities. These programs focus on a specific academic theme and incorporate a mix of lectures, company visits, and cultural exploration. In all programs, instruction in English will familiarize students with the business culture, history, economic environment, and foreign-investment dynamics of the host country.
Some of these programs are optional add-ons to Ross courses, and others are classes unto themselves.

- During Winter Break 2013, Ross Professor John Branch led a group of students to St. Petersburg and Moscow for his course STRAT 320: Doing Business in Russia.
- Ross Professor Anuradha Nagarajan offered an optional excursion that traveled to Santiago, Chile, with students from her STRAT 392: Dynamic Capabilities through Corporate Development course.
It was such an alternative spring break that no other experience could have ever offered. I loved going to see the Hermitage, the Red Square, and being exposed to a whole new different culture. At the same time, we got to visit some really reputable companies such as Baltika, Ford, and BCG and these were really valuable in terms of doing business on an international scale. I would definitely encourage anyone who's interested to go on this trip!” -Student, Russia 2013
