The core of the Weekend MBA format culminates with our signature Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) course, which epitomizes the Ross dedication to hands-on learning.
You will work with a sponsor -- a large corporation, startup, or nonprofit -- to find a creative solution to a critical organizational challenge. Each project requires you to collaborate with a team of peers and a faculty advisor. At the conclusion of the project, you deliver your analysis and recommendations to the sponsor and Ross faculty in a formal presentation and written report.
Some projects require teams to create a business strategy, solve a market entry problem, or perform complex financial modeling. Others ask you to generate product launch plans, propose operations improvements, or draft new customer relationship regimens.
To sponsors, MAP delivers real, data-driven solutions. To you, MAP delivers a transformative educational experience that brings coursework to life.
MAP requires Weekend students to commit to a full week of travel and/or on-site work in late February/early March of the first year.
