What We Look For
 
Our Executive MBA Program looks 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 with a minimum eight years of work experience, including five 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.

Across UCLA Anderson, we thrive with a student body that possesses 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.”
