Why FEMBA?
 

DISTINCTION:

  • FEMBA is a top-ranked MBA offering at UCLA Anderson
  • "#1 in SoCal" for 26 years (and counting), U.S. News and World Report
  • Part of the nation's #1 public university, five years in a row

THE SAME MBA DEGREE:

  • FEMBAs enjoy the same faculty, diploma, alumni network and student clubs offered in the full-time program.
  • Like the full-time MBAs, FEMBA students can also participate in on-campus recruiting and work with their own dedicated career services team to fully realize their professional potential.

THE VALUE OF FIRSTS
FEMBA students also benefit from programs and features that originated at UCLA Anderson such as:

  • The Global Access Program
  • International Studies & Exchanges
  • The uniquely adaptive Flex hybrid schedule

FEMBA students utilize their new skills right away:

  • They gain precious practical experience.
  • They graduate with three years’ more work experience than their full-time peers.

More Options, Fewer Obstacles

The FEMBA program has three scheduling options to complete core courses and offer even more flexibility during the elective phase.

All-Day Saturdays

   

9:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.

2:00 – 5:15 p.m.

Tuesday & Thursday Evenings

   

6:30 – 9:45 p.m.

Hybrid

   

The hybrid schedule affords students the combined option of on-campus attendance (meeting one weekend per month) and online study.

Flexible course choices, flexible timing

Much of the experience consists of elective courses, which FEMBAs have the power to choose and customize according to their interests and needs.

Students wishing to fast-track have the option of finishing their degree in 27 months. Those needing more time to complete course requirements because of personal or career reasons can extend their studies over five years.
