We do not require a minimum number of years work experience prior to entering the program, but the significant majority of our admitted students have around 8 years of work experience prior to entering.


That said, we evaluate work experience not in terms of quantity, but in terms of quality: the impact you have had on your organization and your natural leadership qualities. Those who wish to join us at an earlier stage of their career should be able to demonstrate what they will be able to contribute to the Ross experience, as well as have superb academic credentials and the maturity and self-confidence to handle the intensity of the program.
