New Weekend Format at Ross

Beginning in May 2010, the Ross School of Business Part-time MBA Program will offer a Weekend Format in addition to its Evening Format, the school announced late last week. Generally, students take three to four years to earn an MBA in the Evening Format. In the Weekend Format, students will earn a Ross MBA by attending class two weekends a month for two years.

“The Michigan Ross MBA is a credential recognized and respected around the world. We’re pleased now to be able to offer two part-time formats so students can choose how best to integrate their studies with their other commitments and responsibilities,” says Robert J. Dolan, the Edward J. Frey Dean of Business at Ross. “The traditional Evening Format offers maximum flexibility of schedule and courses; the new Weekend Format offers students the chance to complete the program in two weekends a month for two years.”

Students in the Weekend Format will take classes Friday afternoon and evening, and all day Saturday during six 14-week terms. Most of the courses will be held in Ann Arbor, although a few may take place at the Ross satellite campus in Southfield. Weekend students will take all of their courses in lockstep with a cohort of peers.

“In the world of part-time MBA programs, one size does not fit all,” says Valerie Y. Suslow, associate dean for degree programs. “It’s important, especially during a difficult economic time throughout our region, to offer as many options as possible. Both formats offer a great general management education and draw on the Ross School’s commitment to connecting business education with real business through action-based learning.”
