Two Outstanding Locations; One World-Class Degree

We offer our prestigious Ross Executive MBA Program at two sites — our newer home in Los Angeles, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, as well as our traditional home on campus in Ann Arbor.

At either site, you experience the same EMBA Program — and earn the Michigan Ross MBA degree respected around the world. Both locations offer our rigorous general-management curriculum with a focus on strategy; senior, award-winning members of our renowned Ross faculty; and our personalized Leadership Development Program. Both sites follow the same schedule format. At certain times during the program, both groups of students come together for courses and for additional opportunities to network and exchange ideas — and both graduate together at commencement ceremonies in Ann Arbor.

At Michigan Ross, we understand how challenging it can be to integrate a demanding MBA program into your busy personal and professional life. Along with a world-class education, our EMBA Program delivers lodging and dining in a first-class, hassle-free experience, whether in Ann Arbor or Los Angeles.
