This review is for UCLA Anderson
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2018
Anderson has exceeded expectations in most ways -- it's truly a hidden gem of a business school for a few reasons:
1) Location: Being in the bustling and diverse LA area means having robust connections to thousands of companies, and a large proportion of students take advantage of that by doing term-time internships that augment that experience.
2) Academic rigor: Rather than the fluffy 100% case-based curriculum, Anderson offers a mix of lecture, guest speakers, seminars, and cases -- you'll come out of it with a much better handle on the intricacies of accounting, finance, etc. than you would otherwise.
3) Student body: Not a finance fratboy environment, which is a HUGE plus; being collaborative is rewarded and a part of the school's ethos.
4) Access to faculty: Professors and deans alike are super happy to sit down to have lunch with you (an initiative sponsored by the school); already been to the faculty club for lunch three times with professors and I've only been there 4 months...
