U.S. Military, Reservist, & Veterans

UCLA Anderson is honored to have its military, reservist, and veteran population represented in EMBA. Your military training has strengthened your leadership skills, so now let your expertise benefit from a global network of classmates.


Military Resources

Executive MBA study teams are built to resemble a board of directors, with members from every area of business. Almost every team includes a military professional or veteran because your leadership is an asset to the cohort.

Application Fee Waiver

Military personnel can request the $200 application fee be waived as a thank you for serving. After creating your application, but prior to submitting your EMBA application, email Christina Marentes with your full name and “Military Application Fee Waiver” in the subject line. Once approved, you can continue the application process free of cost. If you are applying for the Fully Employed program please email your request to femba.admissions@anderson.ucla.edu, and if you are applying to the full-time MBA program please email mba.admissions@anderson.ucla.edu.

Post-9/11 GI Bill®
The Post- 9/11 GI Bill® is an education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty after September 10, 2001. Depending upon your certificate of eligibility, you may receive payment for all fees, since UCLA is a public university.

From Naval Academy to Managing Director at CBRE

“While taking the opportunity to attend UCLA Anderson, and subsequently joining the CBRE team in Los Angeles and San Diego, I learned that we — as veterans — have the power to truly model behavior for our colleagues. We have the opportunity to empower others to take initiative, give more than we take and exercise an entrepreneurial and integrative mindset. We can all work together in service to others and truly exceed the expectations of our clients.“

Juan Rose (’13)

Managing Director, CBRE
