A three-month session in Asia kicks off the Ross Global MBA Program. Ross faculty travel from Ann Arbor and, together with students, they spend four weeks each in Korea, Japan, and China. Throughout the experience, Ross faculty integrate core MBA studies with company visits and cultural excursions to provide a real-time global perspective on business and social customs.
As a group, students and faculty engage in classroom and extracurricular activities, creating a tight-knit cohort and unique environment of intellectual stimulation and development.
Ross handles logistics for the duration of the Asia session. However, you are responsible for your own air travel. The school offers shuttle service to and from airports, arranges lodging at carefully selected corporate training facilities, and provides all meals. Each student has a private dorm room. Classroom, study, and dining facilities are shared among classmates and faculty.
The school arranges corporate and cultural tours in each city to help students deepen their understanding of local culture and business customs. In addition, it has become tradition for students in their home country to organize diverse cultural excursions over the weekends. These joint efforts make the time in Asia a truly enjoyable and rewarding experience that strengthens the bond among students.
The close environment in which Global MBA students and faculty live, study, and socialize sets the foundation for lifelong personal and professional relationships.
