The University of Michigan's Ross School of Business will begin offering alumni access to courses, both online and in-classroom, and events — at no cost.
"We created Alumni Advantage to ensure that our alumni know that resources and support from Ross don't end when they receive their diplomas," says Alison Davis-Blake, dean of the Ross School of Business. "Alumni Advantage is an exciting and robust set of offerings available here in Ann Arbor, in cities throughout the world, and online, to reach our global alumni base in meaningful ways…"
Davis-Blake says Ross alumni will have access to full-tuition scholarships and Michigan Ross executive education open enrollment programs in Ann Arbor, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and India. Alumni can offer colleagues or family members 50 percent off executive education programs. Ross alumni will also receive invitations to "#Rosstalks," a series that brings faculty to cities throughout the world for talks on business-related topics.
Both Ross alumni and alumni of the University of Michigan can enroll in a Ross course at U-M's Ann Arbor campus, access Sanger Leadership Center workshops hosted in major cities, or can attend speeches and presentations by Ross faculty.
The Ross School of Business has more than 45,000 alumni in nearly 90 countries throughout the world. The University of Michigan has about 500,000 alumni.
