I got admitted to both Anderson and Ross EMBA programs for the class of 2020.
These two schools have pretty much the same reputation and rankings.
I live in SoCal so I only applied to only these two schools because of location.
For those who may not know, Ross has EMBA cohort in LA, the same faculty from Ann Arbor.

As the deadline to make the deposit is less than a week away, I have to decide one.
I like to switch my career from engineering to product management, but still in tech.

Anderson
- all students in one location
- larger network in west coast?
- global programs available (immersion and exchange)

Ross
- larger alumni in big tech companies (Apple, Google, MS, FB, Amazon) - at least from linkedin search
- better known school for tech
- smaller number of student in LA and it is not the main campus.

Ross offered me $15K scholarship which Anderson did not.
As Anderson tuition is about 7-8K cheaper, scholarship from Ross many not be a big deal.

I see a lot of comparison and reviews about Full Time MBA for these two schools, but not much for EMBAs.
I would like to stay in the west coast for the next few years (4-5 years) and may want to explore opportunities in other regions or other countries.

Has anyone seen one school stands out better than the other in terms of reputation in your organization and alumni network, etc?
I am just trying to get some advice before making the final decision.
Thanks.

For what its worth, I had the exact same decision as you a year ago (plus USC), and decided on Ross. I couldn't be happier with my decision. One year into the program I am so glad I picked Ross. Any day that I wear a Michigan t-shirt in Southern California is filled with shouts of "Go Blue" and often interesting conversations with Michigan alumni. Remember, it's not just Ross alumni you are interested in, but all Michigan alumni, of which there are many in SoCal.

Can you share what your decision factor was and what your industry is?
I appreciate it.

I'm in Tech. I spent time visiting each program, attending multiple events. I felt a greater connection at the Ross events than the others. Also, Michigan places well in tech, and the career services offerings are beneficial. Since I've been in the program, I've been impressed and surprised by the amount of knowledge I have gained that has been directly usable in my current company. I received a promotion 4 months into the EMBA program, and can honestly say that Ross contributed to this.

Anyone here in the same boat as I am this year and selected Anderson over Ross?
I have talked several people who chose Ross over Anderson, but not those who chose Anderson over Ross.
