Programs of Study

UCLA Anderson School of Management recently implemented fundamental changes to its curriculum to better prepare MBA students to succeed in the marketplace. This new curriculum is focused on 4 key components designed to help students quickly build the knowledge and skills necessary to realize their career goals.

Through the Leadership Foundations and the Management Communications Program, UCLA Anderson works with students to build crucial leadership and communication skills. The school offers a customized core that aligns each student's academic experience with their career aspirations and helps students build depth of expertise in their chosen areas through the pursuit of tracks and specializations. Students can choose to pursue a marketing, finance, consulting, or custom track. If they wish to dive even deeper, specializations are available in areas such as real estate, health-care management, entertainment, and entrepreneurship.

The capstone Applied Management Research Program, a 20-week experiential learning process in which students work as a team, allows students to apply the knowledge they've gained in the classroom to solving the challenges of a real-world client. This sharpens both their teamwork and their written and verbal communication skills via the final report and presentation to the client.

Research Facilities

UCLA Anderson's Rosenfeld Library is ranked among the top US business school libraries. Rosenfeld Library provides access to over 100 specialized databases, as well as to an expanding array of electronic journals and texts supporting all areas of business and management, such as accounting, business economics, strategy and policy, finance, human resources, marketing, and organizational behavior. It also delivers robust reference, consultation, course outreach, course reserves, facilities management, document delivery, and information fluency programs. The library's print collections support the UCLA Anderson curriculum in all areas of business and management and comprise 180,600 volumes, 2,900 currently received serial subscriptions, 633,000 microforms, and over 269,000 historical corporate reports. While the Rosenfeld Library's information sources are of particular value to the MBA curriculum, Rosenfeld Library is one of 12 UCLA campus libraries whose vast resources are also available to the MBA student. In addition, UCLA students, including Anderson MBA's, are part of the University of California Library system and have access to those information resources through a variety of programs ranging from licensed databases to interlibrary loan to borrowing print materials. The Rosenfeld Library also participates in an international interlibrary loan program that allows it to borrow materials MBA students may need from libraries beyond the UC system.

Research programs and study centers associated with the school and its faculty members include the Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the Center for Global Management, the Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate, the UCLA Anderson Forecast, the Laurence D. and Lori W. Fink Center for Finance & Investments, and the Center for Management of Enterprise in Media, Entertainment and Sports.

Financial Aid

Merit fellowships, donor fellowships, and need-based grants are available. Private education loans are available for international students who do not have a US cosigner. A limited number of research and teaching assistantship positions are also available.

Cost of Study

For 2012-13, tuition and fees per academic year total $49,564 for California residents and $56,063 for nonresidents. These costs are subject to change.

Living and Housing Costs

Room and board for the 2012--13 academic year are estimated to be $14040. Books and supplies will be $4900 (including a $2500 laptop computer allowance). These costs are for students living off campus in shared housing. Additional costs may include support of dependents and medical expenses. Married students should budget additional costs from personal resources, as financial aid only covers the student's costs.

Student Group

UCLA Anderson has a vibrant student body whose extraordinary intellectual, cultural, social, and athletic energies spill out of the classroom into a plethora of nonacademic activities. The average age of the most recent entering class for the Full-Time M.B.A. Program (class of 2013) is 28, and the average number of years postgraduate work experience is 5 years. Of this class, 33% are female, and 33% are international.


Los Angeles is among the world's most vibrant and exciting cities. In addition to being the entertainment capital of the world, businesses in Los Angeles create 4 times the gross domestic product and diversity of the Silicon Valley. The city is home to Fortune 500 companies and major industries, ranging from financial services and health care to manufacturing and aerospace. The city hosts even more small businesses, which are a significant source of US economic growth. From its location in Southern California, Los Angeles serves as a gateway to both Asia and Latin America.

UCLA Anderson students enjoy access to extensive cultural and recreational opportunities with museums, sporting events, theaters, and countless other activities offered both on campus and throughout the city. Because the location is such a cultural crossroads, there are always opportunities to engage with people from various backgrounds and points of view. Students benefit from this interaction both professionally and personally, learning as they share cultural traditions with each other.

The School

UCLA Anderson's management education complex is a testament to the school's vision for superior management education. Continuing the school's reputation as a national leader in the use of technology in MBA instruction, the 11 specially designed case study rooms have power, wireless, and wired network data ports at each seat, as well as a custom teaching lectern with state-of-the-art audio-visual and instructional technologies that support, enhance, and extend the school's active learning environment.

The Rosenfeld Library houses 3 computer labs for MBA students, one of which includes 23 desktop computers and 2 networked printers. The other 2 collaborative labs also provide wired and wireless network access and printing and can seat up to 15 teams of 5 students. The library also houses a professional audio-visual presentation facility, known as the Boardroom, as well as 24 additional collaborative pods for teamwork.
