Join us for our Military Preview Weekend
and get to know the Michigan Ross community.

Learn more about our MBA curriculum, action-based learning opportunities, student life, and recruiting. Partners are welcome and will have the chance to connect with members of the Partners Club at Ross.

Due to space constraints, participation in the Military Preview Weekend requires application by Thursday, Oct. 13.

Michigan Ross requires all attendees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and up to date — in other words, you must have received a complete primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and, after enough time has passed, a booster dose. If you are unable to meet this requirement, we encourage you to attend other events we hold virtually. More information about our COVID-19 policy

Frequently Asked Questions

You will need to submit your current resume and a response to one essay question, in addition to indicating if you plan to submit a GMAT score, GRE score, or a statement of academic readiness when you submit your MBA application. If you have already taken the GMAT or GRE, there will be a place on the Ross Military Preview application to submit your test scores. The essay should be limited to 1,000 characters and include your response to the following prompt:

What military experience are you most eager to share with your future classmates and why?

If you are selected to attend, you will be notified by Oct. 14, 2022. Due to the growing popularity of this event, we cannot invite all qualified candidates to attend. We encourage all interested candidates to apply to the Full-Time MBA Program whether or not you receive an invitation to this event.

Hotel accommodations are covered by Admissions on the night of November 11.

If you’d like to stay additional days, you are welcome to book the additional night(s) on your own. Hotel information will be provided when you have been accepted to the weekend.

We highly encourage you to reach out to current students who share your career and club interests. If you would like to connect with a member of the Armed Forces Association, we recommend you to reach out and a current student will follow up.

If you would like to schedule a meeting with representatives from Michigan Ross centers and institutes, contact them directly.

Ross waives the $200 application fee for current or former members of the U.S. military.
