We look for students with professional experience from a wide range of industries, including government, law, media & entertainment, aerospace, technology, medicine, and communications.

Our candidates have earned degrees in many different fields of study and many have advanced degrees.

We value the diversity of professional experience and backgrounds that non-business and nonprofit backgrounds bring to the program.

While some applicants lack formal business training and/or experience, they can thrive in our collaborative academic environment.

We are most impressed by increasing levels of responsibility over time; those who advance faster than their peers are the ones who get admitted first.

At UCLA EMBA, you will find your study group to be your personal board of directors and support network.

Students bring expertise to the class, helping those with different experience and business backgrounds to meet common goals.
