It can be very difficult for MBA applicants to distinguish between different schools. When you start your research, they really all sound the same. Do they offer breadth of depth. What does a general management focus really mean? How is integration of different business functions handled? Does the school rely on the student to connect the dots between functions or does its approach encourage a general management perspective? How practical and real-world is the program?
Gene Anderson, Associate Dean for Degree Programs, at the Michigan Ross School of Business has a regular article in The Monroe St. Journal, the Ross student paper, and he provides tremendous perspective on the Ross program and priorities. This week’s article discusses Ross’ flagship educational approach exemplified by MAP, or Multi-disciplinary Action Projects.
In "Got MAP? Multidisciplinary Action Projects are Back" Dean Anderson really conveys the breadth of opportunity and the ambiguity inherent in MAP. If you are considering Michigan Ross or if you are interested in a project-oriented, hands-on education, take a look at this article.
