MBA News: Michigan Ross EMBA to Be Offered in LA

Starting in August 2012, the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan will begin offering its 20-month Executive MBA Program in Los Angeles to attract even more West Coast candidates and to further expand global access to the school, according to Dean Alison Davis-Blake. Students in the program will meet once a month for weekend-long programming that replicates the Ann Arbor campus curriculum. Davis-Blake hopes the expansion will build a strong alumni base on the West Coast and will appeal to busy executives who want “more time learning, less time commuting.” (Applications will be accepted in January.) We should note that this is the continuation of a trend, wherein EMBA programs are developed outside the parent schools’ traditional campuses. Kellogg has its EMBA in Chicago and Miami; Chicago Booth has an EMBA program in Chicago, Singapore and London; Wharton has one in Philadelphia and San Francisco; and so on.
