Historically the Up Close weekend was designed to attract talented African American, Hispanic American, and Native American applicants to the Ross MBA program.
We’ve expanded this event to include all prospective students, of any race or ethnicity, who have an interest in improving the visibility of underrepresented students in business schools and in management.
Alternative Breaks can be a great vehicle for service-learning and civic engagement for students, and can be utilized by student organizations and part of academic courses.
To meet with the Alternative Breaks coordinator, click here.
Up Close attendees may be of any race or ethnicity.
Please describe how you have or intend to support the advancement of underrepresented minorities (defined in this context as African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans) in academic or professional settings.
Alternative break experiences can challenge students to critically think about and address important social issues.
If you are selected to attend, you will be notified on September 8, 2017. Due to space constraints and the growing popularity of WILC, we unfortunately cannot invite all qualified candidates.
We encourage all interested candidates to apply for the full-time MBA program whether or not you receive an invitation.
