Michigan Ross Executive MBA
The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at University of Michigan offers full-time, part-time, and Executive MBA degrees. Founded in 1924, the school places a large significance on preparing students to be influential leaders in the business world. Some of the most popular areas to study include accounting, consulting, production/operations management, and finance. The EMBA program takes about 21 months to complete. During this period, students are permitted to take advantage of many research centers on campus. (Including the Frederick A. and Barbara M. Berb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise and the Tauber Institute for Global Operations.)
The program is structured as once a month on-campus residences on Fridays and Saturdays. On Friday evenings, students gather for group meetings, review sessions, speakers, and skill-building workshops. Students also participate in extended residencies at the start of each year. Because most students are full-time employees, the program works through distance learning, so students can complete many assignments and online exams from home. Most students claim that the program calls for about 20 hours of work (aside from the residencies). Curriculum consists of classes focusing on economics of business, corporate financial strategies, and global business development.
The Ross School of Business is well-known for having the William Davidson Institute (WDI), which is a non-profit organization based on intellectual capital on business and policy issues. Students can interact with business leaders and public policy makers to learn how actual companies operate day-to-day. Many students also choose to be involved with the Erb Institute’s partnership with the School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE). This group works on public outreach opportunities and scientific scholarships to improve sustainability in the US.
Outside the classroom, there are more than 70 organizations for students to take part in (including women’s groups for female MBA students). The school has its own newspaper, “Monroe Street Journal,” and an academic journal, “The Michigan Journal of Business.” An important tradition is the Ross MBA college football tailgating party, which allows the students to blow off steam with their classmates. More than 500 attendees (including alumni) turn out for this event every year.
