Taught by top minds in business, the Weekend MBA curriculum is all about the experience. Advise a business around the world as part of your MAP project, address critical decision points in our innovative C-Level Thinking course, and connect with classmates from various business backgrounds.
Rise to the Rigor of a Two-Year Program
Master both business fundamentals and themed business electives in just two years through this action-based, cohort experience.
Weekend MBA students may substitute up to nine credit hours with elective courses outside the WMBA curriculum.
The core courses in blue are required classes. All core courses must be taken in the specific semesters as scheduled. The courses in yellow are electives, and may be substituted with other courses. Substitutions may be made with elective courses from the Full Time MBA, Online MBA, or other graduate level courses at the University (subject to approval and availability).
Students in their respective programs have first priority to register for courses in their program. If seats remain available, WMBA students may register. Ross cannot guarantee seats will be available in specific courses. Courses on campus are typically offered during the week in normal working hours (9 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST). Live sessions for online courses are offered in the weekday evenings via Zoom.
Stretch Your Skills With MAP
In this signature 14-week course, you and your team will work with a sponsor company to tackle a complex business challenge in a domestic or international setting.
Focus on Your Interests
In your second year, concentrate on business disciplines that align with your interests and integrate with your core coursework. Choose from themed electives in Analytics, Strategy, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Operations Management, or Financial Management.
Show the World Your Leadership Credential
Let an endorsement from one of the world’s most renowned centers for leadership development showcase the experiences you’ve gained as an MBA. Offered through the Sanger Leadership Center, the Michigan Ross Leader Endorsement is available to all students who complete a set of program requirements.
Bring It All Together With C-Level Thinking
Navigate the complexities of C-level leadership in this capstone course, designed to help you integrate and apply what you’ve learned throughout the program.
The Weekend MBA is a lockstep, two-year program that meets on the Ann Arbor campus every other weekend beginning in May.
Classes are held Fridays from 4 p.m. to 9:10 p.m., with a dinner break, and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5:10 p.m., with three breaks.
Thirty percent of coursework will involve distance learning, such as viewing lectures online.
The signature MAP course, taken your first year, may require a full week of travel and/or on-site work sometime between late January and early March (depending on the project sponsor).
