Executive MBA class members provide an extraordinary learning resource for one another. Students are chosen both for their overall abilities and for the contributions they can make to class. The Executive MBA program attracts highly accomplished professionals who share a record of successful work performance and managerial experience, and clear potential for managerial leadership. Each student brings a unique set of skills and experiences. Together, participants create a collaborative learning environment that is second to none.
One of our distinctive features is our strategic creation of study teams. In each team of five or six, there's a general manager, finance professional, marketing professional, an engineer - and to round out the team, we might add an attorney, physician and/or a manager in the media & entertainment industy or other industry not already respresented in the team - creating a microcasm of a small business. UCLA EMBA not only has a diverse class, but diverse study teams.
