Action-Based Learning

At Ross we want you to experience business while you study it. The support of generous benefactors like Thomas C. Jones, BBA '68/MBA '71, who endowed the Thomas C. Jones Center for BBA Education, bolsters the Ross School's efforts to deliver a fast-paced, action-based, and team-oriented approach to leadership development.

Some of the most dynamic courses we offer place you inside organizations where you apply the theories and principles discussed in class.
