High School High Performers come to Ross to LEAD


Talk about making the most of your summer! An impressive group of high school students are at Michigan Ross through July 24 as part of the LEAD Summer Business Institute program. Coordinated through the Office of Undergraduate Programs. The group of young scholars is getting a taste of what it’s like to attend one of the top business schools in the country and be a part of a world-class university.

LEAD is a national initiative that focuses on developing high-potential youth of diverse backgrounds into high achievers and responsible leaders. The program aligns with the Ross mission to develop leaders who make a positive difference in the world and our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Ross’ LEAD program is a nearly three week experience that is an ideal mix of academics, team-building, and the best that U-M has to offer. The students spend each day attending sessions on marketing, finance, management, operations, and more, led by some of Ross’ most influential professors. They will also hear from executives from Google, PwC, and ExxonMobil. These thought-provoking sessions are balanced with trips to the Ann Arbor Art Fair, a visit to Cedar Point, tours of Detroit landmarks, and explorations of the U-M campus.  

The University of Michigan joined the LEAD family in 1981. Since then, over 800 high school students have benefited from the LEAD experience at Ross.
