Non-Business Course Opportunities for MBAs

Non-Business Course Opportunities for MBAs

(Partially updated November 27, 2013)

MBA students may complete up to ten credit hours of graduate-level courses in other units at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor while enrolled in the MBA program.  Consequently, other graduate programs on the U of M Ann Arbor campus notify us from time to time of courses which may be of particular interest to Ross students.  We encourage you to explore them as ways to enhance your experience at Michigan.  To find other graduate-level courses not listed below, please visit the Rackham website, select a Program of Study and review the offerings under the Courses tab.

Please be aware that the listings and links below are posted as a courtesy, and that it is recommended that you obtain the most up-to-date course information by consulting the Schedule of Classes or contacting the School/College through which the course is offered.  Keep in mind that you may also need instructor permission to enroll in non-Business school classes.
