When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also making a commitment to a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Each year, approximately 100 first-year students at UCLA Anderson and a handful of second years participate in an annual ski and snowboarding trip at the end of winter quarter. In the past, students spent five days in Whistler Blackcomb, Vancouver, but for the past two years, the ski trip has been to Breckenridge, Colorado. One first-year student we interviewed simply stated, “I feel bad for everyone who did not go on the Breckenridge ski trip this year.”
