F/EMBA International Exchange

Short-term, one-week exchanges conducive to working students' schedules provide opportunities to study at a top international partner institution while becoming immersed in the host country’s culture and academics.

UCLA Anderson's international exchange is a 4-unit elective course, managed through the Center for Global Management. As part of the course, FEMBA and EMBA students are able to participate in short-term, often one-week courses offered by UCLA Anderson's partner schools around the world. These short-term courses are offered over the summer during the months of June, July, August, and early September so they do not interfere with students' regular academic schedules. The international exchange provides an opportunity for FEMBA and EMBA students to study abroad with students enrolled in other MBA programs; take courses that might not be offered at UCLA Anderson; and learn more about another country's educational, cultural, and business environments.

The course topics and number of courses offered by exchange schools can vary each year. All courses available to UCLA Anderson students are taught in English. Students must apply to be considered for the FEMBA/EMBA international exchange course. Spaces are limited.
