The Executive MBA program is looking for leaders who can share a unique perspective with their classmates. We value students who bring an expertise in a specific industry or functional area, demonstrating a career journey with continuous growth and increased responsibility.
Our curriculum is tailored for executives, managers and senior professionals; therefore, we’re interested in candidates who have a minimum of 8 years’ work experience, including 5 years managing people and/or large projects. Building a class with a mix of students from small, medium and large organizations is a priority and global business experience is a strong consideration as well.
Across UCLA Anderson, we recruit students who possess a collaborative spirit, commitment to innovative thinking and the courage to make an impact in business and our society.
“Coming into the program as a finance executive with two kids at home, I found it hard to imagine how I would juggle everything. I soon realized my classmates and professors set a high bar for performance, while understanding that family and work had to take priority. We supported each other through our challenges, and learned from each others’ experiences.”
