The MSBA experience isn’t limited to the classroom. With access to over 50 Anderson student clubs and organizations as well as the overall UCLA campus, MSBAs make the most out of a truly immersive experience.
Southern California is one of the most vibrant and exciting geographic areas, with cutting-edge commercial activities and unparalleled access to cultural and recreational opportunities. Los Angeles is a global city where culture, business and industry blend into opportunity. This is where four million people power the world's 15th largest economy. UCLA is a crossroads of ideas, cultures and limitless experiences and opportunities. The iconic UCLA campus is set in Westwood, one of the leading residential areas of Los Angeles, and is adjacent to Bel Air, Brentwood and Beverly Hills. The campus is easily accessible by car and public transportation from freeways and major thoroughfares. Theaters, sporting events, performances and leisure activities are all available either within or just beyond the borders of the UCLA campus.

Other Attractions
Santa Monica Pier

Revisit days gone by at a mini-amusement park perched over the water. With a roller coaster, a ferris wheel and plenty of kitschy booths, this is old-fashioned fun.


From Santa Monica to Redondo and beyond, the beaches are a great place to pick up a game of volleyball, do some surfing, enjoy people watching or just watch the sun set into the ocean.


Tinseltown! The entertainment capital of the world offers opportunities to see TV shows filmed live, attend red carpet events, watch advance screenings of movies and engage in entertainment industry networking events. And you're just sightseeing, the Walk of Fame and the Hollywood sign are a short ride away.

Downtown L.A.

No longer just a business district, this is where some of the world’s best museums, architecture, concert venues and cuisine reside. From a glass sliding board 70 floors above the city to the historic Grand Central Market, a foodie hub, DTLA makes you feel even more alive.

Amusement Parks

Students can take advantage of UCLA discounts for some of the world’s premiere theme parks, including Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Knott’s Berry Farm and more.


There are a large number of movie theaters near UCLA, and Westwood has, historically, hosted film premieres at the Village Theater. Anyone is welcome to stand to the side and star gaze as celebrities arrive in their limousines!
