“UCLA Anderson EMBA had the top two things I was looking for in a program — great reputation and a strong global network. Despite the distance between the UCLA campus and my home in Chile, I wasn’t going to let the travel get in the way of reaching my goals. Twenty-two months is a short time compared to the long impact you are able to make afterward.”
