Collaboration leads to better ideas

Collaborations

Business+Impact is built on the foundational belief that diverse views and voices strengthen our ability to affect change. Michigan Ross creates and partners with businesses, nonprofits, social enterprises, and other academic units so our students have profound experiences and see tangible results. Through these collaborations, participants will gain real-world experience, while changemakers will gain a better understanding of core business principles. This concept is core to our new REAL program at Ross.

Whether you’re a student or a professional, you’ll get to work with diverse constituents to collaborate on issues that matter to you and the communities you seek to serve. We’re aware that more great thinkers can result in better solutions. Therefore, we search the landscape of Ross, U-M, students, faculty, community organizations and business leaders to bring the leaders and best to societal, environmental, and poverty issues.

Find out how you or your group can work with us to partner with others and make a real difference!
