Student life as an MSBA is designed to be fully, wholly about your transformation as an analytical leader. We create a schedule that includes unique workshops, special events and gamification to make this program 100% different.


Why is the UCLA MBSA experience different?

MSBA students bring more to the table than most: they pack a unique blend of technical prowess, critical thinking, on-point communication and analytical problem-solving. They deserve the very best preparation, as our MSBA graduates are changing the way businesses make decisions.

We Share Success

We believe the best route to success is through collaboration.

We Think Fearlessly

Here you will be encouraged to push past the expected with your thinking.

We Drive Change

Our students, faculty and alumni are committed to questioning the status quo and making an impact.

Be Bold • You Are Always On • Be Heard • Own the Room

These are the MSBA program mantras. Here, you will quickly understand how data will empower you to live out these tenets in your work.

"At MSBA, we don't shove away work because our plate is full. We just get a bigger plate!"

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!
