Action-based learning provides an experience you wonít get from a case, a lecture, or even most internships. It exposes you to uncertainty. It puts you on the edge. And itís designed to foster resilience.
Action-based learning takes many forms at Ross.
- Scope and address a real problem, and then make actionable recommendations for a real firm through our signature Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) course.
- Manage a $3 million venture capital fund through the Zell Lurie Institute.
- Spend a week abroad consulting with real companies on market entry issues, joint ventures, and strategic alliances through the Global Projects Course.
- Partner with students in the College of Engineering and the School of Art & Design to research, design, manufacture, and market a fully functional, customer-ready prototype of an actual product through the Integrated Product Development Course.
- Participate in the Ross Leadership Initiativeís annual Crisis Challenge, an intense simulation in which competing teams of students inhabit the roles of corporate leaders coping with a devastating crisis.
