What Do I Need to Submit with My Application?

Applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree program or an equivalent in another country. The application must include copies of all academic transcripts, GMAT or GRE scores (scores are considered valid for five years before the application deadline date), a resume and a description of work experience, two letters of recommendation (preferably from a manager or supervisor; reapplicants only need to submit one new recommendation), responses to short answer and essay questions, and the $200 application fee.

Non-native English speakers are required to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores to demonstrate proficiency except those from a select list of countries.

How Does the UCLA Anderson MBA Interview Process Work?

Interviews are required for admission and are by invitation only. Candidates should submit official transcripts and test score reports upon receiving an invitation. Interviews are in person or virtual, typically with a second-year MBA student. Interviews are resume based, meaning the interviewer has not had access to all application materials. Questions generally cover topics already addressed in the application, such as reasons for getting an MBA, short-term and long-term career goals, fit with UCLA Anderson and personal interests.

While the UCLA MBA deadlines page does not include information about the timing of interview invitations, we can make some judgments based on data from our LiveWire tool. Looking at the previous years of data, we see that Round 1 interview invitations tend to begin in mid-October, and continue into early November. Meanwhile, Round 2 invitations tend to begin in mid-January, and continue through the month of February.
