At Michigan Ross, we believe in the power of bringing your MBA skills to social entrepreneurs around the country. Since 2014, Ross has sent MBAs to participate in Ross Open Road, a program that pairs MBA students with visionary entrepreneurs.

Students initiate teams, plan journeys and help social entrepreneurs implement impact at scale. Students have the opportunity to experience social entrepreneurship in practice while traveling to different communities across America.

Are you interested in applying to Open Road? Visit the official student-authored Ross Open Road website to find more information.

Info Sessions for the Ross Open Road Program are held in early winter. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date.

2019 Ross Open Road

In May 2019, three Ross teams embarked on their journey across America to partner with social entrepreneurs. To find out details about Team LOVA, Team MPower and Team RAIK, visit the Ross Open Road team page or our 2019 Open Road story and meet team members, see itineraries, and learn about the destinations. You can follow their experiences on Twitter #RossOpenRoad and Instagram #RossOpenRoad

What makes Ross unique is that they are more than happy to fund students who want to do something a little different with their time. We’re really grateful for the support of the school in allowing us to have this journey.
