Michigan Ross offers a world-class MBA in a flexible format that allows you to integrate studies with your existing personal and professional commitments.
Once a month for 21 months, you will convene with faculty and classmates for on-campus residencies. On-campus residencies are typically held Friday through Saturday. Friday evenings are often used for group meetings, review sessions, speakers, and skill-building workshops.
In addition, EMBA students engage in extended residencies at the beginning of each program year. These residencies will integrate students in Ann Arbor and Los Angeles, offering expanded networking for members of each respective cohort.
Programming is divided into five terms. Ann Arbor and Los Angeles students follow the same basic schedule. The EMBA program begins in August, and commencement takes place 21 months later in April/May.
EMBA curriculum is augmented with distance learning throughout the program. You’ll be engaged – wherever you are – via online collaborations, Mediasite lectures, streaming video, interactive case studies, team-based simulations, and online exams. The distance learning environment is teamwork-driven, mirroring today’s global business environment. Ann Arbor and Los Angeles students will collaborate in integrated online learning communities.
The average weekly commitment is about 20 hours per week, although this varies by individual and course. Exams are taken remotely; students enjoy the flexibility to take exams anytime during the three-day Friday-Sunday window.
The centerpiece of Michigan Ross' action-based curriculum, the Executive Multidisciplinary Action Projects course, requires students to spend four months at the onset of year two consulting with an organization. Students select from a diverse slate of executive-level project offerings that cover a wide range of topics from supply chain and market entry issues to acquisitions and entrepreneurial startups. Travel is required for some projects but not all.
Integrated Living and Learning Experience
Whether in Ann Arbor or Los Angeles, the Michigan Ross EMBA provides a sophisticated living and learning community in which lodging, fine dining, and executive services are provided. Students in Ann Arbor live and learn in Michigan Ross' Executive Learning and Conference Center. Students in Los Angeles do the same at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills.
