The Global MBA Program at Ross was established for the unique purpose of nurturing cutting edge knowledge and leadership development for those whose education is sponsored by their employer. Since its inception in 1992, over 1,000 elite managers have taken advantage of this great learning opportunity.
The Ross Global MBA is a full-time cohort-based MBA that provides an immersive MBA experience in just 16 months by eliminating the internship typically offered to those who are pursuing an MBA with the intent to change companies or industries. For those who have careers to return to after their studies, the Ross Global MBA is exactly what’s needed. Participants in our program have an average of 7-8 years of work experience before joining, placing us between an Executive MBA and a traditional 2-year MBA.
Participants develop valuable new contacts, interact with global business leaders, and enhance their leadership skills. The Ross Global MBA features a rigorous curriculum, taught by world-class faculty, which incorporates action-based learning and culminates in the Michigan Ross MBA degree that’s valued and admired around the world.
