University of Michigan Ross School of Business

The Global Impact of Positive Business

Our society faces grand and global challenges. The economic, social, and political challenges of our generation are complex, dynamic, and at an unprecedented scale. At Michigan Ross, we believe business has the potential to be the most powerful force in the world for positive change, and thus be part of the solution to these challenges. In this year’s opening session, Scott DeRue, Edward J. Frey Dean of Michigan Ross, will share his vision for how business can address the most critical challenges of our generation, and therefore illustrate the global impact of positive business. This dynamic session will reinforce the power of business to drive meaningful change and set the tone for the inspirational sessions, stories, and workshops to come.
