Chancellor’s Executive Education Fellowship

Applications are now being accepted for the Chancellor’s Executive Education Fellowship to the UCLA Anderson Executive Program. This fellowship is made possible by the generous support of Anderson’s Dean Antonio Bernardo and is intended to enhance the development of emerging leaders at UCLA.

The Executive Program is offered twice per year. The Spring session is scheduled for March 7 – June 22, 2020. The Fall session is scheduled for September 25, 2020 – February 6, 2021.

Taught by Anderson faculty, the program delivers the essentials of an MBA education in an accelerated timeframe and encompasses the following leadership and key management areas:


Sessions that address leadership style to enhance decision-making, negotiation, and creativity, along with a hands-on business simulation


Weekly class sessions on topics such as strategy, operations, marketing, change management, finance, accounting, and innovation


An Integrative Case Competition that requires novel, practical solutions judged by a panel of experts


Executive coaching to help clarify goals and develop action plans


Application of program insights to specific workplace challenges

The UCLA Anderson Executive Program is designed for leaders with significant management experience who have achieved, or have the potential to advance to, senior management positions at the University. Nominees who have attained a UCLA position at Management and Professional Staff (MSP) Grade 2 and above will be given priority consideration for the fellowship. Although the program is intended primarily for staff candidates, consideration will be given to academic appointees who also hold an administrative appointment. A personal commitment to leadership development, to building a career at UCLA, and the ability to invest the time to fully participate in all aspects of the program are essential to participant success.

One fellowship is offered for each session of the Executive Program. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2019, for both of the 2020 programs.

Please submit an application online for the Chancellor’s Executive Education Fellowship. Applicants will be required to upload a copy of their current resume and a letter of support from their manager at the end of the online application. Please ask interested employees to complete the application and upload the required materials by November 1, 2019.

An announcement of the Fellowship awards will be made in January 2020. Those not selected for the award are encouraged to consider applying directly to UCLA Anderson. A 30% discount is available for eligible UCLA managers and senior staff. Early application is recommended since space is limited.
