We do not require a minimum number of years of work experience prior to entering the MSCM Program. However, we expect that most of our admitted students will have at least one year of work experience. We evaluate work experience not in terms of quantity but in terms of quality – the impact the applicant has had on their organization and his or her natural leadership qualities. Those who are joining us at an earlier stage of their career should use the application to demonstrate what they will be able to contribute to the Ross experience. In addition these candidates should come to the program with superb academic credentials, as well as the maturity and self-confidence to handle the intensity of the program.
