November 2019

From the Assistant Dean, MBA Admissions and Financial Aid, Alex Lawrence ('99)

We welcome you to join us for our upcoming Embracing Diversity event at UCLA Anderson, November 2019. This event will provide you with the opportunity to experience UCLA Anderson up front and learn what makes our MBA programs a top choice for students from around the world.

You will gain an insider's perspective on UCLA Anderson as you attend student panels, meet some of our corporate partners, visit with alumni and current students, learn about career opportunities post-graduation, and experience what an MBA class at Anderson is really like. You'll discover a learning environment informed by academic, professional, geographic and cultural student diversity - a balanced community built upon respect.

At the end of the event, you will:

  • Discover the intellectual capital that drives our school and prepares our students for a lifetime of career progression across industries and functions
  • Get to know what the Anderson community is all about: diverse from all angles, where all opinions are respected and where everyone works in collaboration
  • Understand how the "learning laboratory" of Los Angeles prepares individuals for opportunities that extend from Los Angeles to Wall Street to Latin American to the Pacific Rim
