The Michigan Ross MAP program began more than 20 years ago and is core to the school's signature action-based learning curriculum. Student teams are assigned to projects designed by regional, national, and international companies and organizations. The projects span industries from consumer goods, health care, and technology, to finance, nonprofit, and startups.
Project sponsor companies this year touched several parts of the globe including Beijing, Brazil, Ireland, Michigan, New York, Seattle, Zambia, and for the first time in the program's history, Mongolia.
