>>International Electives

The Executive MBA program requires all students to complete Management 470D, International Residential in China. In addition to the China residential, the program offers EMBA International Studies & Exchange Programs to provide EMBA students with additional international immersion opportunites. We have developed a series of international electives to prepare students to think more globally, develop an educated world view and become more sensitive to the business cultures of other nations. Students learn about global issues through direct experiences abroad.

UCLA Anderson EMBA has partnered with international business schools to develop new electives abroad. Two elective programs are offered: the EMBA International Studies & Exchange Programs. All Management courses are taught in English. Please note that International Studies Programs carry additional participation fees.
