Ross Global Initiatives’ short-term programs are 1-3 week global experiences with business elective credits, featuring a selective application process and varying yearly. They offer financial aid for BBA students and require personal management of visas, health, and safety needs.

Ross Semester Exchange offers students the opportunity to directly enroll in a top international business school while earning business elective credits.

This program can also be very competitive for certain partner schools and requires a high degree of independence and comfort navigating ambiguity.
