The new full-time MBA curriculum offers students the ability to complete one of four optional tracks (Marketing, Consulting, Finance and Custom). These tracks allow students to select from a series of elective courses to build expertise in their chosen career path and signal expertise and focus to employers. Specializations further allow students to customize their academic preparation even further and supplement their track choices. Enrollment is voluntary.
There is already a global requirement in the full-time MBA program, however the new specialization in Global Management takes it further and demonstrates to employers that students have emerged from UCLA Anderson's educational programs with 'global brains' and have an intuitive bias toward examining management, operational and policy issues from a global perspective.
Students pursuing the specialization in Global Management are required to take four courses, including The Global Economy (macroeconomics) which is a required course, complete an international immersion experience and attend three Global Management Speaker and Lecture Series events.
