“Career Services at Anderson's MSBA has cultivated crucial relationships with tech companies that are known for extremely competitive recruiting. It has been so much easier to get face-to-face with these recruiters as a result of their efforts”

The MSBA program invests in the people and resources necessary to deliver a level of career support that is rare among specialty masters programs. This includes securing the leadership of Director Larry Braman, who brings over ten years of career consulting experience placing technology-focused individuals, and Manager Adrienne Antonio, who brings multi-year experience as both a recruiter and a corporate relations specialist at UCLA Career Services.
The Career Services team works closely with each student to craft and execute a career plan so they can land internships and full-time jobs in their targeted industries. Additionally, we offer numerous career and professional development workshops with an emphasis on building the communication skills essential to confidently “tell the data story” to stakeholders across the business spectrum.
“When I entered UCLA's MSBA program, I had very specific goals for the next phase of my career that I wasn't completely sure how to accomplish. The MSBA career services team couldn't have been more helpful in the year that followed. Between one-on-one advising meetings, personalized job recommendations, and sessions covering topics like presentation skills, interview practice, and networking, I always felt sure I was headed in the right direction. In the end, I accomplished my exact goals, and I couldn't be more thankful”.
We introduce you directly to analytics leaders, hiring managers and recruiters through special events like company info and recruiting sessions, industry nights, the Industry Seminar course, career fairs, company-sponsored data challenges, and field trips and treks to visit organizations.
Students also have access to a multitude of live and online career resources from UCLA and Anderson, including the many Anderson student clubs.
"MSBA career services is exactly what I needed to have a significant impact on my analytics journey. It was a technical and business refinement that helped me become agile, well-presented and an ever-learning professional. The high caliber of commitment, attention, resources, skill development, recruiting advice and strategy from the career team helped me to get ready for the next big thing on a moment’s notice. Basically, I learnt to own the world."
