Earning an OMBA from Michigan Ross provides an excellent opportunity to join a community of leaders, researchers, and lifelong learners who are working to create innovative solutions to the world’s most complex business challenges.
Of the 57 credits required, 17 are reserved for electives for OMBAs to explore their interests and goals. Of those electives, the most popular options include Healthcare Markets & Public Policies, Managing the OMBA Fund, Leading Diverse Teams & Organizations: A DEI Toolkit, Strategies for Growth, and Communicating in a Virtual World.
Although the program is online, the program has an in-person component where Ross OMBAs attend 3 of the 4 offered residencies (nine credits) – a highlight of the program. They span Thursday – Sunday at Ross’s Ann Arbor campus, or in varying global cities. Lodging and some meals are included, though students are responsible for travel costs to and from the residency location. Options include the Business Leadership Residency, the Business Transformation Residency, Business Innovation Residency, and the Global Business Strategy Residency.
“Making in-person connections with classmates felt extremely natural after having seen each other in the ‘classroom’ for the past couple months. Everyone was friendly and genuinely excited to finally get to meet each other. It was great to see that there are many others in class also balancing full-time work, the MBA program, and having children,” says OMBA Ramen Tieu on Ross’s site.

Another highlight of the program is the Multidisciplinary Action Project, where student teams act as consultants for a real company and work to deliver a solution to a critical challenge that the organization is facing. Communication with project sponsors will take place primarily online, yet sometimes an on-site visit to the sponsoring organization might be required.
Outside of the typical application requirements such as essays, resume, and interviews, Ross looks for OMBA candidates that well articulate how they’ve made meaningful contributions that drive results and can communicate and collaborate well with others.
“Once I found out about the program, I spoke to a number of [my now] fellow classmates before I accepted my offer to join. Just hearing about their experiences and about how innovative the program was — and the fact that you were being taught by the same professors as the full-time MBA program, [plus] the fact that you’re still getting that action-based learning part of the curriculum that Ross is so well-known for — really spoke to what I wanted,” says OMBA Jeff Shafer on Ross’s site.
