The Executive MBA support staff and the school’s crew of trained hospitality professionals work together to provide you with learning, living, and leisure elements during your on-campus residencies.
The majority of EMBA classes are held in the Executive Education Center at Wyly Hall. Two theater-style classrooms are designed for lecture-style learning, while additional flat classrooms are ideal for workshops and group discussions. The facility also features 25 breakout rooms, each of which accommodates up to six people. Great attention has been paid to digital video production and distribution to augment teaching, learning, and research.
In addition, technology is integrated throughout the learning experience, from web communications and networked files to electronic course materials and project preparation. EMBA students have access to numerous school and University-wide computing services. The Ross network hosts a wide range of software applications and services, and our distributed mobile computing environment for laptops provides wireless LAN throughout our faciliities.
Wyly Hall is adjacent to the Executive Residence, a newly renovated full-service hotel designed to meet your lodging, fine-dining, and executive service needs during on-campus residencies. Hotel amenities include high-speed wireless, laundry/drycleaning services, safe-deposit boxes, complimentary newspapers, and a 24-hour business center.
The award-winning chef in our Executive Dining Room caters to specific dietary restrictions (including vegan, kosher, and gluten-free requests). Both the Executive Dining Room and the Ross School's Seigle Café feature fresh, local, and sustainable foods.
Each guest room floor features a social area for professional networking and informal gatherings. Cocktails and other beverages are served in the seventh-floor lounge.
In keeping with the Ross School’s commitment to sustainability, the Executive Residence incorporates many sustainable and recycled building materials, including the granite, marble, oak paneling, and wool carpeting in each of our 105 guest rooms.
Ross students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to incorporate a healthy lifestyle with their top-notch education. EMBA students are invited to use the Ross facility’s Och Fitness Center during their stays in Ann Arbor. Those who love the great outdoors can bike along more than 60 miles of scenic trails, kayak down the Huron River, get lost in the Nichols Arboretum, or take advantage of Ann Arbor’s many golf courses.
Ross also houses an impressive art collection consisting of more than 200 contemporary works by Deborah Butterfield, Hung Liu, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, and Edward Ruscha, among others. The collection was started in 1995, and all of the pieces are gifts from alumni and friends of the Ross School.
