DEADLINE: All students must take the Math Assessment and Excel Proficiency Questionnaire by June 19, 2013.
UCLA Anderson prides itself on putting together an incoming class of unique individuals with a broad range of pre-MBA backgrounds. As such, members of our community may have differing levels of readiness for our rigorous academic program. Many students are surprised at just how challenging our courses are. Since we are 100% invested in each student's success, we want to make sure that you are fully prepared to rise to this challenge. For this reason we require all incoming students to take our Math and Excel assessments, which have been developed in cooperation with UCLA Anderson faculty and staff. These assessments will test your familiarity with the basic underlying math concepts and Excel skills that you will then use in your MBA courses and beyond.
PLEASE NOTE: Your score on these assessments is purely for your own use, so that you might gauge your level of preparedness for the MBA program of study. Please rest assured that it is not shared with your professors or used for placement into courses in any way.
Read Before You Begin
- Once you begin the Math Assessment you will have 2 hours to complete it. This will be more than enough time for the 40 questions, some of which will be very quick. Be sure to set aside an uninterrupted block of 2 hours to devote to taking the assessment.
- You can step away from the Math Assessment but the quiz timer does not stop; you must return and complete it within the 2-hour block of time.
- The Excel Proficiency Questionnaire has no time limit. It will probably take you less than 10 minutes to complete.
- You will be limited to one attempt for both assessments.
- For technical help with the assessments please contact Aura Lippincott, Director of Instructional Technology Solutions. For questions about academic preparation in general please contact Jessica Luchenta, Associate Director of MBA Student Affairs.
- Once you complete the assessments you will also receive information about online courses and on-campus workshops to help you prepare for academics at UCLA Anderson.
