"Without the UCLA Anderson network, I wouldn't be where I am today. I wanted to transition into marketing, and, after replying to a job posting, I was on my way. It turned out the job-poster’s husband not only went to Anderson, he sat right behind me! Now, I'm in the theatrical new release marketing department at Warner Bros. I'm continually impressed with how strong Anderson's network is!"
"I chose UCLA Anderson for the high tech and entrepreneurial culture; my experience exceeded my high expectations. Coming to UCLA Anderson materially changed the way I think, connected me to a powerful network and enabled me to make a major career transition from IT audit to product management. The FEMBA program gave me the flexibility to take meaningful internships and provided continuous support from an amazing career center."
"Executive-in-Residence Paul Checketts has been an amazing coach, and I wouldn't have landed this great job with Capital Group without him. He guided me through the process and helped to navigate in a very competitive industry. His continuous coaching and support helped me land a summer internship at JP Morgan Private Bank. Paul encouraged me, suggested how to resolve difficult situations and provided feedback about my skills to the potential employers."
"Within a few months of merely being accepted into the FEMBA program, my career took a dramatic step up. I was able to leverage my FEMBA acceptance and pending MBA degree in job applications and interviews. I was quickly offered a position that resulted in a 50 percent raise. Before my first class at Anderson, the career transformation I was hoping for had already happened."
"A product-management summer internship for a large medical device company was an opportunity I could not pass up. It truly made a significant impact on my career. After my internship, I received a full-time offer for after graduation. Because I had time off, I decided to try out Healthcare Consulting, and received additional offers from three consulting companies. I could not be more pleased with how FEMBA impacted my career."
"I started my current company just before school started and the timing could not have been better. Being able to apply right away what I learned in class and from my classmates is absolutely invaluable."
"I’m happy to say that I didn’t have to wait until graduation for my senior management to take notice – they knew that my network was growing and that many new opportunities would be coming my way, so they offered me a promotion to show me that they support and value my personal and professional development.”
“When I was deciding between opening a second location of my business and pursuing other career options, Gordon, one of FEMBA’s dedicated career coaches, sat down with me and patiently helped me with weighing the merits of each option. Having a career coach who is dedicated to helping you make the right business decisions is an invaluable tool that FEMBA offers.”
“Access to the FEMBA network has been instrumental in helping me explore other career opportunities. The alumni network has provided access to globally-recognized corporations, while the career management center has equipped me with professional resources, coaching, and guidance throughout my transition process.”
