UMich Ross Portfolio (500 word essay)

The Ross Admissions Portfolio requires a 500 word essay on the business implications of a current event or issue in my community. This is a fairly new introduction, and I am quite lost. I’m not sure what kind of current event/issue to discuss, or what they are expecting in any way. Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

For my essay, I wrote about how my school was proposing to put bathrooms by our football and baseball fields, and how it would improve the community.

Guys does it HAVE to be in my community or can it be international

When we read it, we understood it to be a local issue, or an issue that is outside the local area but impacts you - so I think this could be international if it has an impact on you and/or your community.
