The Michigan Ross Executive MBA Program at University of Michigan is customized to account for your significant experience and expertise.

Whether you are seeking to advance further within your organization or looking to make a change, our curriculum, student and alumni network, and extensive career management resources offer the right tools to propel your career. We're here to support you from the time you begin until long after you graduate.


The people in your class are an important part of your education. The diverse experiences of EMBA students contribute to a rich, stimulating, and dynamic classroom environment. We look for candidates with deep professional backgrounds, substantial responsibility, and demonstrated academic ability.

We seek students 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.

While Michigan Ross does not have a minimum work experience requirement, EMBA students typically have 10 or more years of progressive, full-time work experience, including five or more years in a supervisory/managerial role.

Courses in management are not required for admission, although you are expected to have a satisfactory background in communication skills, computer applications (including word processing and spreadsheets), and mathematics.

Admissions criteria are identical for the Ann Arbor and Los Angeles locations. We encourage you to submit a resume to an admissions officer for pre-assessment prior to completing an application.
