The Global MBA Program begins each February with the Asia Session, consisting of one month each in Korea, Japan, and China. In June, students relocate to the Ross campus at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for the remaining thirteen months of the program.

Students complete the required Ross MBA core courses in the first two terms, consisting of the three months in Asia and the first three months in Ann Arbor. Upon completing the core, students are free to pursue a wide variety of electives at the Ross School and the University of Michigan in the fall and winter terms. The program concludes with the seven-week Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) requirement.
