The Business School Advantage!

The UCLA Anderson culture is founded
on three pillars:


The MFE Experience isn’t Limited to the Classroom


Outside of the student experience, MFEs enjoy important industry gatherings on campus, prestigious guest speaker events, Anderson Afternoons (social events with other degree programs), seminars, sporting events and much more.

Beyond UCLA, Los Angeles offers limitless opportunities. It’s one of the world’s largest economies and is a cultural epicenter, where creativity influences business like no other city. Whatever your outside interests are, there’s sure to be a community of enthusiasts here.

A Commitment to Diversity

Diversity isn't a buzzword at UCLA Anderson, it's a way of life. No matter your background, gender, culture or ideas, we believe diversity creates a vibrant and inclusive community.
