Entrepreneurs Hall

Management Development for Entrepreneurs Fellowship

The Price Center for Entrepreneurial Studies offers current UCLA Anderson MBA and FEMBA students the opportunity to participate in the Management Development for Entrepreneurs (MDE) Program, an executive training program designed to provide entrepreneurs with the essential management skills needed to build effective and profitable organizations.

MBA Fellows are UCLA Anderson graduate students who have demonstrated academic excellence, solid business experience, and a strong interest in consulting and entrepreneurship. Selected MDE Fellows will have the opportunity to work closely with entrepreneurs attacking real issues facing growing entrepreneurial organizations.

At the start of each MDE Program, Fellows team-lead one-hour learning sessions that are designed to supplement lectures and assist entrepreneurs with homework assignments. Throughout the program, Fellows provide individual consultation to three to four entrepreneurs on their Business Improvement Projects (BIP) -- blueprints for action designed to make significant changes to each entrepreneur's business. Fellows are also given the opportunity to audit lectures by top UCLA Anderson professors, and are awarded stipends upon the successful completion of their Fellowship requirements

Requirements of the MDE Fellowship
Mandatory participation in MDE events and classroom sessions
Team-lead one or two 1-hour Learning Sessions
Conduct site visits to assigned entrepreneurs' organizations
Provide consultation and feedback throughout the BIP process
