An All-Inclusive, Immersive Experience

We provide a comprehensive, all-inclusive, immersive experience for EMBA students. The EMBA program integrates rigorous studies with a first-class residential experience. We believe this is the best way to foster a high-quality environment for learning, collaboration, and relationship-building among executives in the program.

In our program, you won't find hidden costs or unexpected changes to tuition. Tuition is set at the beginning of the program and will not change. Tuition for the 21-month EMBA Program that will begin in Fall 2014 is $141,000 for Michigan residents and $146,000 for nonresidents. See the Registrar's Office for University of Michigan residency requirements.

Tuition and fees in the Michigan Ross EMBA Program cover:

  • All tuition for courses, workshops, special speakers, and events
  • All books, electronic resources, and course materials
  • Technology, software, and communications needs
  • Accommodations in Michigan Ross' Executive Residence (Ann Arbor) or the Hyatt Regency (Los Angeles)

Note that tuition and fees do not cover your monthly travel expenses. EMBA students are required to pay for all transportation to and from Ann Arbor and/or Los Angeles.

Ross is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program. For those who are 100% eligible for Chapter 33, the University of Michigan and Ross will cover most of your unmet tuition needs.

A limited amount of scholarship funds are available to EMBA candidates during each recruiting cycle. All candidates applying to the Executive MBA Program are automatically considered for merit-based scholarship awards at the time of application review. We also welcome candidates who are currently working in the non-profit and public sectors as part of our commitment to community and positive social impact.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early in the recruiting cycle when scholarship funds and class seats are at their greatest. All scholarship awards are communicated with admissions decisions approximately four to six weeks after an application has been completed.
