Michigan Ross India Initiatives

With a long history of academic and research activities in India, the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan provides a formal structure for ongoing work with its India Initiatives. The India Initiatives, officially launched in August 2011, builds on the strong bonds nurtured with India over the past 18 years through faculty scholarship, custom executive education, student in-country learning experiences, and alumni and corporate outreach. The India Initiatives portfolio includes the C.K. Prahalad Initiative, Executive Education Programs, and the annual India Business Conferences.

The Ross School stands alone among peer institutions in its ability to deliver cutting-edge ideas, pioneering research, and innovative business solutions for companies in India with an eye toward balancing profits and social value creation. The India Initiatives helps the Ross School identify and evaluate new opportunities that advance its global agenda in leadership excellence.
