What is Impact?

From poverty to healthcare access, from sustainability to human rights, impact is a significant positive change that addresses a pressing societal challenge. Business has a place in transformational change, and its leaders must engage the public, private, and nonprofit sectors as well as diverse disciplines.

What Do We Do?

Business+Impact is a new initiative from Dean Scott DeRue aimed at making Ross the most progressive source of ideas and solutions for how business can address the global challenges of our generation. We aim to embed impact deeply into every core activity of Ross, including teaching, research, and outreach. As such, impact is not a silo, but it is part of the DNA of our business school.
