Five pieces of advice that may assist you with your application


Each year, the FEMBA Admissions Committee selects a talented and diverse class from a pool of highly competitive applicants. As the person accountable for admissions, my goal is for you to look at your new classmates on your first day of Leadership Foundations and say to yourself, “Wow. I am now part of an amazing community that will expand my horizons for the rest of my career. I am honored and excited to be at UCLA.”

Step 1: Come meet us personally

Choose from an array of events at which to meet us, online or in person.


Step 2: Apply early

Admitted students may take advantage of career services, financial aid consults, academic prep courses and social networking — even before orientation.

Step 4: Sign up for an admissions interview

After you submit your application you will receive an invitation to interview on campus.
