This review is for UCLA Anderson
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2017
Located in California, Anderson ripes the same benefits of other BSchools located in the Bay Area; that is, in case you’re looking for a career in Tech. Many alumni have landed jobs in big companies in Seattle and San Jose, and the reason is not only due to its location, but also the strength of its curriculum and its alumni network, which IMO sets apart from other BSchools. In this regard, Anderson’s community is very tight but without losing the healthy competition amongst students.
For students with families, I think there are few schools that offer such a great place to live. The university village is amazing, located just 15 minutes away from school (and the beach), is a good place to mingle with your peers and has all the amenities you’d expect from a top school: free maintenance, pool, basketball and tennis court, study rooms, and so forth.
The curriculum met my expectations, although I’d skip some of the core (mandatory) classes. There plenty of electives you can choose from and many extra-curricular activities you can enroll voluntarily (sports clubs, entrepreneur mentoring programs, etc)
Overall, I’m very satisfied by the education I received at Anderson and the impact it had on my career.
