Family Life
Approximately one quarter of our students balance family life with the demands of their studies. Your classmates provide a wonderful support network, and we have additional resources to help your family integrate into the UCLA Anderson community.

“The resources at Anderson and UCLA have made our MBA journey easier and made me feel empowered to attain my goals. The communities within Joint Ventures club and University Village have always welcomed and supported my family. My wife has also been able to further her education at UCLA Extension and our son is currently enrolled at the UCLA preschool. We have absolutely loved it here!”
