The Ross Leadership Initiative (RLI) is grounded in cutting-edge, practice-oriented research conducted by faculty in the Ross School of Business.

Since the 1950s, Michigan has established a tradition of thought leadership. Our school has been home to ground-breaking research on leadership and leadership development. It is ranked annually as one of the top institutions in the world for research on management, leadership, and organizational behavior.

World-class Michigan Ross research is the foundation for our Michigan Model of Leadership, which serves as the DNA for RLI programs that help students identify and achieve their leadership development goals.
