The UCLA Anderson MFE curriculum is solidly based on the business school paradigm of merging theory and principle with up-to-the-minute business practice. While MFE programs are available at many universities, UCLA Anderson is one of the few top-tier business schools worldwide to offer the MFE degree. Our dynamic curriculum, taught by a world-renowned finance faculty, merges technical and theory-based pedagogy with practical immersion through a summer internship and a corporate sponsored Applied Finance Project.
