UCLA Anderson Unveils New MBA Flex Option

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

UCLA Anderson School of Management is adding a new scheduling option for the Fully Employed MBA program (FEMBA) that will allow a broader range of prospective students greater access to a top-tier business education. The first cohort to take part in this innovative approach will be welcomed to campus during the fall of 2012.

Though the admissions requirements, faculty, courses and degree are identical to the FEMBA program, a portion of the FEMBA Flex course work is delivered via online lectures, collaborative group work and web-based learning tools. This makes it possible for FEMBA Flex students to attend campus as few as four times each quarter. The in-person class sessions are conveniently scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays at the UCLA Anderson campus. This track allows participants the ease of retrieving lectures and online activities within their own convenient schedule, yet still integrates conventional in-class learning.

"The FEMBA Flex option offers working professionals, whose schedules may not offer them the flexibility to travel to campus as often as required, greater accessibility and opportunity to further their education," said Carla Hayn, Senior Associate Dean for the UCLA Anderson Fully Employed MBA and Executive MBA programs. "Our curriculum is extremely global already, and we want to make UCLA accessible to a range of professionals from corporate executives and military servicemen and women across the US to stay-home parents looking to transition back into the workforce. ULA Anderson wins when we bring the most energetic and dynamic leaders into the classroom and FEMBA Flex expands our ability to do that."

Blending online and face-to-face learning environments provides professionals with busy work schedules or other commitments a greater opportunity to further their education.

"A traditional MBA schedule is not feasible, given my work schedule," said Jason Fraser, an executive military officer stationed at Camp Pendleton in San Diego County. "FEMBA Flex is the ideal scheduling option, allowing me to balance my family, work and education effectively. The online platform is a neat aspect since I can watch the teacher lecture through video feed and still get a sense of being in the classroom. Plus, I get the in-class benefit which is absolutely essential for networking with my classmates and professors."

The FEMBA Flex schedule typically runs thirty-three months, though an accelerated route can be completed in as few as twenty-seven months.

Prospective students are invited to learn more through open house or webinar events scheduled through the middle of June. The application deadline for fall 2012 is July 15. For more information on FEMBA Flex please visit:
