Online MBA In-Person Residencies
Residencies are currently available each term Thursday through mid-Sunday at the Michigan Ross campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Michigan Ross also plans to host a residency in Berlin, Germany in 2022. Future residencies will occur in major cities around the world. Lodging and some meals at the residencies are provided by Ross and are included in the cost of the program, though students bear additional meal costs and travel costs to and from the residency location.
Global Business Strategy Residency (3 credits)
May, beginning in 2022, Berlin
Mastering global business strategy is critical for success in a rapidly-changing world. It prepares leaders to navigate cross-cultural complexities in response to economic and political changes.
During this residency, students will explore global business strategy through action-based team projects, and apply skills introduced in previous MBA courses. The residency is intended to provide a broad overview of the German economy and its place in the global economy. Students will travel to Berlin to experience firsthand the business environment in Germany, deepening their understanding and ability to formulate strategies for successful investments within Germany and by German firms.
Prior to traveling to Berlin, students will build a framework of knowledge about the country and how both foreign and domestic firms operate competitively, as well as begin to formulate ideas for their final project. Students will also participate in social and cultural activities that require leadership skills and teamwork.
Additional Global Residencies
Residencies will be hosted in additional global locations starting in 2022. Students with a U.S. visa can meet the Online MBA residency requirement by attending a combination of international residencies and/or residencies in Ann Arbor. Students without an eligible U.S. visa can meet the residency requirement by attending three international residencies. Please contact our admissions team for more details.
