What Recent Grads Say See All 10 Comments >

The best thing about Ross is the focus on action-based learning, which is defined by the mufti-disciplinary projects where students work in many global locations helping organizations solve problems, enter new markets, etc. This focus on action-based learning also permeates in classes where you take on CEO roles, venture capital roles or come up with new ideas or businesses. Combining these "real-world" experiences with cases and lectures provides a well-rounded education.
