This review is for UCLA Anderson
Class of 2016
I was lucky enough to have my company pay 100% for my MBA so I didn't have a lot of the pressures that many Anderson students had debt-wise, so I went in with little expectations of having to find a job immediately to repay a loan. However, the school far surpassed my expectations. The faculty was stellar. For the most part, they were sharp but also incredibly engaging. I rarely went to class because I had to, but rather because I was constantly engaged and thirsty to learn from these incredible people. The network of people that gained as friends is by far the most important part of business school, but the constant push to network is now one of my favorite skills because of the school. They also had a Global Access Program (GAP), which is a required course where you do market research for a foreign company. My company was in Brazil, and not only did I help them achieve significant value, but it got me interested in Management Consulting and ultimately the drive to get into McKinsey. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to move up in life and has a passion for business.
McKinsey recruited heavily out of UCLA Anderson. Two FEMBAs and 4 full-timers were hired in 2016. That's pretty good odds for the best MGMT consulting firm on the globe.
