At Michigan Ross, we know the people with whom you learn are as important as what you learn and how you learn it. That’s one reason our Executive MBA Program is highly selective.
We seek to identify candidates who possess deep professional experience, a high degree of responsibility, and demonstrated academic ability.
Michigan Ross EMBAs are proven leaders in mid- to senior-level management. They generally have an average of 10 to 15 years of experience in a wide variety of industries and functions, with more than five years in a supervisory role. They pursue the Michigan Ross EMBA to gain the skills and acumen to take on the next stage of their careers, to improve their decision-making skills, and to expand their leadership capacities.
We're looking for candidates whose notion of leadership includes a willingness to be part of something larger than themselves, who are receptive to new ways of thinking, and who bring varied experiences to bear on how they tackle a challenge. The diverse and extensive experiences of EMBA students contribute to a rich, stimulating, and dynamic classroom environment.
The Michigan Ross EMBA curriculum is customized to account for students' significant experience and expertise. Admissions criteria are identical for the Ann Arbor and Los Angeles cohorts. Courses in management are not required for admission, although students are expected to have a satisfactory background in communication skills, computer applications (including word processing and spreadsheets), and mathematics.
The GMAT is not required.
