Why Ross?

The Global MBA Program was established to meet the unique needs of sponsored managers who are poised to lead their companies into the next generation. At Ross, we understand what experienced managers and their sponsors expect from an MBA education.

They expect best-of-class training in all disciplines and functional areas — from finance and marketing to corporate strategy and entrepreneurial studies. They expect to develop a network of leading scholars and elite managers from major international firms. And they expect to be motivated by sophisticated peers and professors who bring global insight and groundbreaking knowledge to the classroom.

We’ve pioneered a holistic approach to the Global MBA that meets those expectations. We go beyond studying cases. We build a foundation of the most rigorous analytical tools and quantitative skills. Then we challenge our students to apply those skills in action-based team projects and interdisciplinary courses that place them inside organizations around the world. We call it action-based learning, and it sets Ross apart from other MBA programs.

We accept applications only from those who have secured sponsorship. Although the majority of the students in the Global MBA Program are from large, internationally recognized companies, we welcome applicants from companies of all sizes, as well as, professionals, entrepreneurs, and heirs to family businesses.

By taking an active role in co-creating their Global MBA experience, our students return to their sponsoring organizations with the confidence and perspective to innovate and lead. Our alumni believe the resilience gained through action-based learning is an essential and enduring ROI of the Ross Global MBA.
