Stephen M. Ross School of Business – University of Michigan - Online MBA

Michigan Ross Online MBA Program Structure

The University of Michigan Stephen M. Ross School of Business offers part-time MBA students three optional formats: Weekend; Evenings; and Online. The major difference between all three formats is schedule, rather than the curriculum offered. Each program requires multiple on-campus residencies and completion of the Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) course—a seven-week program that allows students to work side-by-side with a sponsor company. All three formats also offer online courses. However, the part-time Online program is more catered to students who wish to complete the program remotely.

Online students can complete the program with 57 credits.


The first year of the part-time MBA program at the University of Michigan Stephen M. Ross School of Business, regardless of format choice, consists mostly of core courses. The Online MBA features 27 credits worth of core courses, 18 credits of electives, nine credits of required on-campus residencies, and the three-credit Multidisciplinary Action Project.
