Consortium@Anderson: Q&A With Tazia Middleton '18 [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 14 Dec 2016, 11:01
FROM NewsUCLA: Consortium@Anderson: Q&A With Tazia Middleton '18
The Consortium has started a series of blog posts that will follow five Class of 2018 MBA students throughout the whole two-year process, and UCLA Anderson's Tazia Middleton is one of the five selected students!

Learn more about Tazia's journey to Anderson in the below excerpts from the first two blog posts from this series!

Image

Name: Tazia Middleton '18

Undergrad: Cornell University,
B.S. Applied Economics & Management, Law & Society


Pre-MBA: Senior Investment Associate, Wetherby Asset Management

Activities@Anderson:
Management Consulting Association, Anderson Leadership Development Program, Women’s Business Connection, Out@Anderson, Basketball Club





Q. What concerns or hardships did you have to overcome in order to realistically consider business school?
“The scariest part was giving up the security of the life I had built in order to pursue something uncertain,” she said. “Saying goodbye to my clients and friends at work was a lot harder than I expected.”



Q. What was the most difficult part of applying to business school?
For Tazia, it was the tremendous time commitment, balancing work, family and “extracurricular” requirements with school research, test preparation and essay writing.



Q. Admissions counselors speak often about “fit”—finding the B-school that fits you. What were you looking for? Why did your choice ultimately meet those needs?
“Fit,” Tazia said, “is everything.”



Q. How has your experience so far lived up to (or fallen short of) your expectations?
“The collaborative culture is exactly what I was expecting,” Tazia said, “with students always willing to help other classmates.”

Q. What do you wish someone had told you about b-school before you started?
“Classwork and recruiting activities ramped up much more quickly than I expected,” Tazia said. “It is manageable, but not without organization.”



Q. What adjustments did you have to make once you understood what b-school was really like?
For Tazia, that meant becoming very, very scheduled. “I had to get back into the habit of maintaining a detailed calendar,” she said. “Group meetings, assignments, calls to my mom—they’re all in my calendar now.”

FROM NewsUCLA: Application Insider: Round 1 Decisions Released Today
This blog post is part of our "Application Insider" blog post series that provides insider information, tips, and advice about applying to the UCLA Anderson MBA program.

Image



APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:
ROUND 1 DECISIONS RELEASED


Just after midnight today, we released all of our decisions to our full-time MBA Round 1 applicants. Admissions officers also called each admit the day before, so we had the chance to break the news to a lot of surprised candidates. It was so wonderful to hear the joy and excitement on the other end of the phone line!

All applicants received an email to check their Status Page for their decision letter, as we use that secure site to display letters rather than actually sending them by email.  If you applied but did not see the notification email, please check your spam folder, or just go directly to your Status Page to view your admissions decision.

We are already receiving Round 2 applications and we know as always it will be our biggest round of the year.  We look forward to seeing many more excellent candidates in the new year by the Round 2 deadline of January 5 (or Round 3 deadline of April 12).

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our application for Round 1, good luck to those working on applications for Round 2, and congratulations to all of our new admits!

Student Blogger: Perspectives on the Embracing Diversity Conference 20 [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 18 Dec 2016, 11:01
FROM NewsUCLA: Student Blogger: Perspectives on the Embracing Diversity Conference 2016
This post is a part of the Student Blogger series - each post is written by a current UCLA Anderson student, and provides first-hand perspectives and experiences about being an MBA student at UCLA Anderson.

Image

Student Blogger: Alexander Cain '17

Undergrad: Cornell University- Applied Economics And Management, Accounting

Pre-MBA: Bankruptcy Auditor

Summer Internship: Wrigley - Marketing

The below is an excerpt of an original post "When an MBA Diversity Conference Delivers" in the UCLA Anderson Blog - please click here to view the whole blog post



Whenever I, an African-American male, hear about any “diversity” event, two predictions run through my mind: either it’s an event where universities push current diverse students involved in their program to attract other diverse prospects, but then fail to show how diversity matters to the greater student body; or it’s a diversity event that emphasizes diversity of thought and doesn’t include many multicultural students.

As someone who has gone through the MBA application process and attended several diversity events at business schools, I understand how hard it can be for an MBA program to find the proper balance required for a successful diversity event: promoting an expansive ideal of diversity encompassing women, LBGTQ and multicultural candidates while still addressing each community’s unique set of challenges and opportunities.

A common mantra I always heard growing up in a predominantly African-American neighborhood was, “Give back to those who come behind you.” I decided to participate in UCLA Anderson’s annual Embracing Diversity Conference to tell my Anderson story, gain an understanding of the pressing challenges among new prospects and give back to my community of African-Americans.

The kickoff event afforded a glimpse into what it’s like to be an Anderson student via the social context of Anderson Afternoons, the weekly happy hour where students reconnect over drinks and a small meal.  The first full day of the conference began with Dean Olian expressing her commitment to ensuring we embrace diversity of thought and cultures. Discussions focused on the unique professional network Anderson provides its students and offered insight into how hiring diverse MBAs has become a long-term business priority for companies. Prospective MBA students were able to envision what a career might look like with industry leaders such as AIG, Amazon, AT&T, Danaher, E. & J. Gallo, Google, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley and PwC.

The evening was capped off with a dinner and discussion with Rick Welts, president and chief operating officer of the Golden State Warriors and the first prominent sports executive who is openly gay. He talked about his journey starting as a ball boy with the Seattle Supersonics on up to winning championships as president of the Golden State Warriors. While it’s great to hear from current students about the value of being a diverse candidate, all of the prospective students were excited to hear a C-suite executive talk about his experience and overcoming challenges.

The last day gave us another chance to tell prospective students about the Anderson brand as we see it — a fun, collaborative, smart group of individuals working together to achieve professional and personal success.

One attendee remarked, “The diversity conference was a real surprise. It was organized, had great speakers, and wasn’t just focused on Anderson’s diversity numbers. It was great to also see ‘non-diverse’ students volunteer at the event, which was a bit different than other schools.”

The Embracing Diversity Conference assuaged my initial hesitations about yet another event of this sort by demonstrating the school’s commitment to diversity at all levels of the Anderson staff, by the upscale presentation at the new UCLA Luskin Center, and through pledging the budget and careful planning necessary to make the conference empowering to prospective students, not only with respect to their MBA, but to their professional career going forward.

UCLA Anderson Application Insider: International Applicant FAQs [#permalink]

FROM NewsUCLA: UCLA Anderson Application Insider: International Applicant FAQs
This blog post is part of our "Application Insider" blog post series that provides insider information, tips, and advice about applying to the UCLA Anderson MBA program.

Image



APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:
INTERNATIONAL APPLICANT FAQs (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)




recent Application Insider blog focused on the top FAQs that we receive from all applicants, so we thought that we would follow up with questions that apply specifically to our international applicants. Below are the top 8 FAQs we receive from our international candidates:

Q1. Can I apply in Round 3 or is that only for non-international applicants?
A1. Yes. While Round 3 is more competitive, we do admit international (and domestic) students in Round 3 every year.

Q2. What academic records do I need to submit with my application? What if they are not in English?
A2. Upload a complete transcript and degree certificate or diploma in the native language of the country in which your degree was earned, as well as a certified translation in English. The degree certificate or diploma should show the exact degree received and date awarded. If invited to interview, you will be required to send official hard-copy documents. 

Q3. My undergraduate university does not use the 4.0 scale for my grades. Do I need to convert my grades?
A3. No, you are evaluated in the context of your own country's school system. Please do not need to convert your grades.

Q4. If I earned a three-year undergraduate degree, am I still eligible to apply?
A4. Yes, you are still welcome to apply. We do admit students with 3-year degrees, but the rest of your application needs to be exceptionally strong to compete against other applicants with 4-year degrees. If you would like your academic records to equate to a 4-year degree, you would need to either complete a master's degree or other post graduate degree/diploma.

Q5. Is the TOEFL or IELTS required for all international applicants?
A5. TOEFL or IELTS scores are required of all international applicants EXCEPT those from a select list of countries. For more information please refer to UCLA Graduate Division Office English Requirements.

Q6. If I completed my bachelors or masters degree in the United States, do I need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score?
A6. No, if you have a bachelors or masters degree from a university in the United States, you do not need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score.   

Q7. Is the TOEFL preferred over the IELTS?
A7. No, we do not have a preference for either exam. It is up to you to decide which test you prefer. 

Q8. Are interviews only conducted on the UCLA Anderson campus?
A8. No. If invited to interview, you will be provided with the option to interview either on-campus or via Skype. There is no difference or preference between interviews conducted on-campus or Skype.

From The Dean's Desk: Happy New Year and Thank You for a Great 2016! [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 01 Jan 2017, 14:01
FROM NewsUCLA: From The Dean's Desk: Happy New Year and Thank You for a Great 2016!
This post is part of a “From the Dean’s Desk” series, where we hear directly from our UCLA Anderson leaders across the school. In today’s post, hear directly from Rob Weiler (’91), Associate Dean of the full-time MBA program.

As I reflect on the year ending and anticipate the excitement that comes with a new year, I can’t help but feel great about all that we have accomplished at UCLA Anderson in 2016.  Given UCLA Anderson’s reputation for having an uber-engaged, energetic student body, it is no wonder so much got done this year!

Here’s just a small sampling of some of our biggest accomplishments:

  • In late January, we held our PULSE Entertainment, Sports, and Technology Conference, hosted by our Center for Management of Enterprise in Media, Entertainment and Sports (MEMES).  The sixth annual conference featured a conversation focused on the importance of international markets with Anderson alumnus Dan Beckerman, CEO and President of AEG, and panels debating the future of television and the comeback of the mid-budget film.   With UCLA Anderson’s position as an intellectual center and location in the geographic center of the entertainment world, PULSE 2017  (to be held on February 10th) will again be the must-attend gathering of business professionals.
  • In February, our Women’s Business Connection (WBC) and alumni group Anderson Women, brought together nearly 450 business leaders, alumni, faculty and students for the annual Anderson Women’s Leadership Summit, entitled Velocity.   The overarching topic was an exploration of how women develop momentum in their careers and proactively address challenges.  This year’s 2017 Velocity Conference will be held on February 3rd with the theme “Empower Together”. Based on last year’s event, this year’s is sure to be another success!
  • Later in the year, we hosted Embracing Diversity, a professional conference where prospective MBAs from across the country gathered to meet with current Anderson students and alumni.  The conference was the culmination of the efforts of our Black Business Students Association, Latino Management Student Association and Out@Anderson, along with many other Anderson campus partners, who brought together corporate partners like Danaher, Google, Microsoft, and Amazon who shared the importance of diversity and inclusion at their firms.  At the closing dinner, Rick Welts, President of the Golden State Warriors and the first prominent openly-gay American sports executive, mesmerized attendees with his story.
  • 2016 also saw the ‘birth’ of Impact@Anderson, which will serve as the hub of social change here at Anderson.  We added a specialization in Social Impact, meaning students who wish to dive deep into this space will have the chance to do so.  The goal, however, is to have every Anderson student be conversant in ‘impact’ and to bring this frame of thought to whatever their post-MBA career.
  • In response to the ever-changing internship recruiting timeline, our MBA students took the first week of November off from classes to focus on the job search (don’t worry, the time away from the classroom was made up later in the quarter!).  During [b]DOJ Week’ (‘Day-On-the-Job Week’)[/b], students traveled to New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Seattle to visit companies in investment banking, investment management, technology, and retail.  While in these cities, current students were able to meet up with area alumni at evening receptions and spend the days meeting with companies they hope to secure a summer internship from.  Some students remained in Los Angeles to visit with local companies in their chosen industries, others practiced case interviews, and all took advantage of this time to work on building the skills to get the summer internship of their dreams!
  • And finally, in the classroom Professor Sanjay Sood once again led the ‘Google Class’, which has proven to be immensely popular with students.  This partnership brings Google executives to Anderson each week to work with students in solving real issues that arise at the company.  Students work on a quarter-long project and present to their Google sponsor at quarter end.  This real-world educational experience is uniquely-Anderson!


What amazes me is that the above is only a small reflection of all of our accomplishments in 2016, and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for us.  Thank you to everyone who made 2016 such a great year for UCLA Anderson, and I wish you all a very happy new year and all the best for 2017!

Today’s post is from Rob Weiler, Associate Dean of the Full-Time MBA Program.

FROM NewsUCLA: UCLA Anderson Application Insider: Round 2 Deadline Tomorrow!
This blog post is part of our "Application Insider" blog post series that provides insider information, tips, and advice about applying to the UCLA Anderson MBA program.

Image



APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:
ROUND 2 DEADLINE


It's hard to believe that 2017 is already here and that our Round 2 deadline is only a day away -- January 5, 2017 at midnight (Los Angeles time)! For us on the Admissions Committee, we're gearing up for the busiest time of the admissions cycle, as this is typically the round in which we receive the greatest number of applications.  We will definitely keep everyone in the loop with any admissions updates on this blog and on our social media accounts (Instagramand Twitter), so keep checking in!

Not sure if you should apply in Round 2 or wait? For those who are not ready to submit by the Round 2 deadline, our Round 3 deadline is April 12, 2017 so you have a few more months to work on your application. Here's some more information about the pros and cons of applying in each round.

If you are able to visit us on campus, we highly encourage joining us for a Campus Experience program that includes class visits, campus tours, and more.  Our programming for Winter quarter will begin on Tuesday, January 17th and registration is now open -- click here to learn more and RSVP (spots are limited!).

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!

FROM NewsUCLA: The MBA Campus Experience is Back!
After a few weeks of relaxation, travel and celebrating the New Year, our students returned this week for the Winter Quarter. Beginning today, the Admissions Ambassador Corps (AAC) is back in action with our Campus Experience offerings, including group information sessions (GIS), webinars, school tours, class visits, coffee chats and lunches. These events are great opportunities to learn more about the MBA program, our culture and individual experiences through the recruiting process and club involvement.

Image

Group Information Session (GIS)
Learn about what sets us apart as a leading MBA program, pick up tips on how to successfully navigate the admissions process and get answers to your questions. Sessions are generally held on Mondays (at 11:30 AM) and Wednesdays (at 5:00 PM) and are hosted by a second-year student ambassador or an admissions officer.

School Tour
Stroll through our beautiful campus and surrounding grounds with a student ambassador to see how our students make the most of our world class facilities. Tours are generally offered on Mondays and Wednesdays during the academic year at 4:10 PM.

Class Visit
Join our students in an actual full-time MBA class and experience the collaborative environment among our students and faculty. Classes are generally held Monday through Thursday during the academic year (beginning the 2nd week of the quarter).

Coffee Chat or Lunch
Learn first-hand from a current student all about our culture and opportunities at UCLA Anderson. Grab your own favorite beverage or food and join the casual conversation.

Webinars
Join our student ambassadors and admissions officers as we discuss the UCLA Anderson MBA experience, the admissions process and answer your questions. These interactive sessions are offered on most Thursdays from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM.

Register today and learn first-hand about the UCLA Anderson difference!

UCLA Anderson Application Insider: Waitlist Guidlelines [#permalink]

FROM NewsUCLA: UCLA Anderson Application Insider: Waitlist Guidlelines
This blog post is part of our "Application Insider" blog post series that provides insider information, tips, and advice about applying to the UCLA Anderson MBA program.

Image



APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:
WAITLIST GUIDELINES


Now that the Round 1 decision date has passed, it's time to post our Waitlist Guidelines for this year's application cycle.  We had so many wonderful candidates in Round 1, but unfortunately not enough space to admit every single person.  If you were placed on the waitlist, we encourage you to read the guidelines below to learn more about what will happen moving forward as well as ways to potentially enhance your candidacy.

  • If your application status indicates you have been placed on our waitlist, your name will remain on the waitlist until a final decision is made on your application or until you request your application be withdrawn.
  • Waitlisted candidates (excluding those who withdraw) will be reconsidered for admission in subsequent rounds.
  • Round 1 applicants will receive an update on their application status by the Round 2 decision deadline of March 29, 2017. Some candidates may be offered the option of remaining on the waitlist for consideration in Round 3.
  • Remaining Round 1 and Round 2 waitlist candidates will receive an update on their application status by the Round 3 decision deadline of May 24, 2017.
  • We cannot give individual feedback to waitlisted applicants.
  • Chances of being admitted off the waitlist are difficult to predict since the number of students admitted from the waitlist varies from year to year depending on the size/strength of the admit pool, number of admits who enroll, and other factors.
  • Waitlisted candidates may send in updates to their application to wlmgr@anderson.ucla.edu. This is completely optional and only for currently waitlisted applicants.
    • We ask that you use your personal judgment and discretion in submitting additional information that is relevant to your application. Some examples include (but are not limited to): updated GMAT/GRE/TOEFL scores, promotions at work, and recent extracurricular accomplishments.
    • Before submitting additional information to the waitlist manager, remember:
      • Every interaction we have with you moving forward can be a data point on your file, so make sure they are meaningful and value-added.
      • Quality of information and communication is more important than quantity.


If you are on the waitlist and have any additional questions, please e-mail wlmgr@anderson.ucla.edu.  For all others, send questions to mba.admissions@anderson.ucla.edu.



To our waitlisted candidates, we thank you for your continued interest in UCLA Anderson!
