Enrollment & Course Materials
MFE students will be automatically enrolled in all required MFE coursework the first quarter, according to which cohort they have been placed. No enrollment action is required by the student at this time. Students must notify the MFE office immediately if any changes to their enrollment status are required.
Course materials for the MFE classes are available for purchase at the LuValle Commons Bookstore on the UCLA campus or may be ordered online here.
Please note that this is different from Ackerman Union, where most UCLA undergraduates purchase their books. The MFE courses can be found by selecting "MGMTMFE - MANAGEMENT MASTERS FINANCIAL ENGINEERING" then scrolling to the 400 series courses listed and selecting the correct course numbers (MGMTMFE 400, 401, 402 and 403). Once you have selected your particular classes, you need to click on the "Choose Books" link.
