Good luck guys! I was in the same position as you guys last year. I haven't really started so I can't say too much about the experience. Hopefully I can provide some tidbits here and there as the year goes on.

I'm a 1st year FEMBA at Anderson. Last week we had our orientation as well as first class/final. To summarize really quickly, it was an amazing experience and I'm very much looking forward to the next few years.

I think regardless of which program you choose, you'll have a great group of peers and professors. Ultimately it depends on your career goals.

For those interested in the FEMBA program @ Anderson I would highly recommend attending the Open House this Saturday. In addition, if you're local to UCLA and thinking of the full-time program or on the fence between the two, I would also recommend checking on the open house this Saturday. The FEMBA program is one of the top ranked in the nation and does cater to career shifters, explorers and enhancers.

I have quite a few classmates who were originally planning on applying to the full-time program, but after some changes in career goals, opted for the FEMBA program.

Also on another note, the FEMBA program does have a full out dedicated career coaching staff just for FEMBAs.

Here's a bit more info on the event:

What’s the dealio with the activities section on the app asking for “phone number/ website” of the organizations you were involved in? Website I get, but phone number?
I mean, do they actually call to verify? I’ve been out of college for 6 years; some of those activities were 8 years ago. There’s no way anyone left there knows me and they certainly don’t keep records. So what gives with them asking for phone numbers???

As far as I can tell, those fields are optional.. so I "opted" not to provide that info for the same reasons as you pointed out
