Admission to the Ross MSCM Program is open to graduates of accredited colleges and universities who have degrees in virtually any area of study. Previous coursework in engineering, science, and mathematics is important but not essential. Before enrolling, students must:
- Complete the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree. The Ross School reserves the right to review the academic records of international applicants and to determine whether the academic credentials presented from a non-U.S. institution qualify for consideration.
- Take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). International students must also take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam if their first language is not English.
We do not require a minimum number of years work experience prior to entering the MSCM Program. However, we do expect that most of our admitted students will have at least some work experience. We evaluate work experience not in terms of quantity but in terms of quality, i.e., the impact the applicant has had on their organization and his or her natural leadership qualities. Those who join us at an earlier stage in their careers should have superb academic credentials and the maturity and self-confidence to handle the intensity of the program.

To best assess each candidate’s qualifications, we require the following materials with each application.
- Current resume
- GMAT or GRE results
- TOEFL results (international applicants only, see
requirements for possible exemption)
- Undergraduate and post-graduate transcripts from all schools where courses were taken.
- Two letters of recommendation
Each element of the application plays an integral role in the overall admission evaluation; no single piece of the application is weighted more heavily than the other. The MSCM Program will contact qualified applicants to schedule an interview.
