A manager oversees all of the daily tasks in their department or organization. They are often in charge of hiring and training new staff members and coaching, disciplining, or firing existing employees. They act as a liaison between the senior management and the employees and situations in their department or location. There are a variety of types of managers that are usually titled based on what or whom they manage. For example, there are project managers, store managers, marketing managers, product managers, etc.
At the end of the Business Management program, all students will complete a capstone experience. This is a culminating project that showcases both the academic and intellectual growth and accomplishments for each student. In the Ross Business Management program capstone experience, each student will select a business topic and then research and write a comprehensive paper about the topic before presenting it to the class.
I loved going to Ross. They are very interested in your career and always willing to help. I gained knowledge, hands-on experience, and lasting friendships. I tell everyone to join Ross!Kayline Pace Graduate Medical Assistant student at Lansing, MI campus Graduation: January 18, 2019
One of the most difficult things to do in life is to start. Ross is where I started. Ross did an excellent job providing information, tools, advice, and homework that helped me discover that there are no ideal conditions and what matters is that I take action to start somewhere; a valuable lesson to integrate into all aspects of my life.Haider Almosawi Graduate Medical Assistant student at Saginaw, MI campus Graduation: November 15, 2018
Going to Ross was the best decision I have made for myself. I never really liked school, but they helped me build confidence and reach goals I wasn't aware I was capable of. They helped me every step of the way to find the career of my dreams. To me, Ross isn't a school; they're a family. Anyone who is considering Ross as a school should go for it. I guarantee you won't regret it.Anastasia Archer Graduate Medical Assistant student at Port Huron, MI campus Graduation: November 21, 2018
Ross Medical Center at Grand Rapids North is a great place to attend. The staff is really attentive to the students and their needs, academically and personally. I love the atmosphere when you walk in the door in the mornings and when you leave. There is ALWAYS one or more staff members there to say "Good Morning," or "Have a wonderful afternoon." It is just like a close knit family.Kelly Thomas Graduate Medical Assistant student at Grand Rapids, MI campus Graduation: May 22, 2019
