When do we receive our course materials and books?

All readings and materials are sent to participants 8 to 12 weeks ahead of the next segment.

Is it possible to visit a classroom session at either UCLA Anderson School of Management or NUS Business School before I apply?

Yes, candidates are highly encouraged to visit campus to attend classroom sessions, meet with current participants, professors, and staff members and get acquainted with the campus and the program.

Given the rigor of the program and the necessary time commitment, how do I fit this into my life? How are current Executive MBA participants handling it?
The Executive MBA program will certainly require some prioritizing in your life. When deciding to apply to the program, participants need to make sure that those around them - including families, friends and co-workers - understand the commitment and support the undertaking.

Some companies help to alleviate workload by providing their employees with additional support (e.g., staff support, time off), but most UCLA – NUS Executive MBA participants see no relief in their corporate and personal responsibilities and commitments. UCLA – NUS Executive MBA participants vary in how they handle the workload (e.g., some may do school work all weekend, some may set aside 1 to 3 hours each day). Workload during the program varies by individual. The important point is that you need to find a routine that works for you and for your team members and discipline yourself to adhere to it.

Can I miss a residential segment and still graduate?

All six residential segments must be attended and completed in order to graduate. In rare situations, if participants are unable to attend one residential segment they must join the next incoming class and wait until the following year to attend the next segment and graduate. This is not recommended and is at the discretion of the Executive MBA program’s Academic Directors.

May I study at the UCLA or NUS campus during weeks in which class is not in session?

Yes, but participants must check with each campus for hours of operation and to reserve a study room.

Who can I contact to find out first hand about the Executive MBA program experience?

Once you have gone through the preliminary assessment, we are happy to introduce you to EMBA alumnus and current participants who are happy to share their experience.

Will I receive an e-mail account from both schools?

Yes, all enrolled participants will receive an “e-mail-for-life” account from both schools, which can be used not only during the program but also following graduation.
