Beyond providing extensive career preparation, the MIM program at Ross also includes high-impact leadership development components, meaning that you will be well-equipped to hit the ground running.
The MIM curriculum
The MIM combines a comprehensive curriculum that covers a wide range of business aspects with practical components, such as a short-term global experience, which will help you put your skills to work in the real world.
In the summer term, you will begin the program with a series of workshops which will introduce you to critical areas of business and management, in topics such as "Financial Management," "Marketing Management," and "Business Communication for Managers."
Then, in the fall term, you'll step it up, building on your base with modules such as "Strategy," "Applied Business Statistics and Analytics," and "Positive Leadership and Organization." At this point, you will also be able to choose elective classes, in topics from big data to innovation and financial trading.
And finally in the winter term, you'll continue exploring business topics, to help round out your business awareness, and continue pursuing elective classes to dial-in your skills.
The MIM's practical components
In addition to exploring core and elective business areas, Ross' Master in Management will also allow you to put your business skills to use in practical experiences. For instance, the Global Business Field Project -- FinTech Global Immersion looks into aspects of financial technology, in depth. The course allows students to develop actionable solutions for business problems for company sponsors, meaning that you will receive hands-on experience in real business topics.
Likewise, the Study Abroad component is a semester-long course that includes fieldwork away from campus over spring break. The themes and fieldwork locations for Global Practicum Courses vary each year and are typically announced in the fall term.
