BusinessWeek, which largely ranks business schools on the basis of student and recruiter satisfaction rated Anderson 17th in 2010, down three places from 14th in 2008. BW, which ranks full-time MBA programs every other year, found that UCLA was 26th in its corporate poll and 17th in student satisfaction with the MBA program. As one very satisfied Class of 2010 grad put it: “I had a great academic and social experience at UCLA Anderson. Academically, I learned that the program is much more quantitative than outsiders would expect. I learned techniques that are applicable to my pre-MBA work experience. We were taught both from an academic and empirical perspective. I feel that I now have the managerial skills and technical skills to lead in any industry or function. All of the courses build upon each other, with professors teaching with respect to one another. By the end of my two years, I am able to grasp managerial decision making from both a macroeconomic and microeconomic perspective.”
