Your First Course at Ross

In your first year at Ross, you will take our unique introductory course, “Businesses and Leaders: The Positive Difference.” You will see what role you can play in business, and what role business can play in society.

  • Explore the competing tensions that arise within businesses, and how business practices and leaders impact organizational performance
  • Evaluate the broader social impact of business across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors
  • Examine the connections between personal values, career goals, ethical decision-making, and moral courage

This course will help you determine where and how you want to contribute to the Ross community, build on your passions, and develop personal plans to guide your BBA experience toward your career goals.

This course introduces some experiential, action-based learning approaches like live case studies, simulations, and guest speakers in addition to lectures, discussions and online exercises.
