Admission Policies

Admission Policies

  • UCLA Anderson admits students to the Executive MBA program for one intake per year in the fall quarter. Visit the Admissions page of our website or see the instructions within the online application for application dates and deadlines.
  • Candidates who apply and are denied in a given year may not reapply in a subsequent round during the same academic year.
  • Nonadmitted candidates are welcome to apply again in subsequent years as described in the Reapplicants section of this website.
  • Application and intend (tuition deposit) fees are nonrefundable.
  • No deferrals are allowed, as admission offers are valid for enrollment only in the same year. Admits who decide not to accept the offer must follow the instructions for reapplicants. Being admitted again is likely, but not guaranteed.
  • Admission consideration for UCLA Anderson’s three MBA programs (full-time, Fully Employed MBA, Executive MBA and Global EMBA for Asia Pacific) are entirely separate. Candidates may apply to only one program in a given academic year.
