The Global MBA Program is customized to meet the needs of individuals targeted by their employer to lead their company into the next generation. Specifically, the program targets participants who have secured sponsorship from their employer. The collective professional experience of Global MBA participants enriches the learning experience both in and out of the classroom. The participants' average age for the last entering class was 32, with about eight years of experience in a managerial capacity. Participants come from a broad variety of organizations, including blue chip companies, as well as regional and entrepreneurial businesses. The curriculum is the same as Full-time program, however, the Global MBA is scheduled over 16 consecutive months, without internships or summer breaks. After completing the core, Global MBA students are fully integrated into courses with students in other Ross programs, including the Full-time MBA, the Master of Accounting and the Master of Supply Chain Management for two full terms of elective courses. Both programs include Michigan's signature field study course, the Multidisciplinary Action Projects course, which partners students with organizations across the world.
