UCLA Anderson’s annual Fully Employed MBA celebration FEMBApalooza is the official welcome event for the newly admitted Class of 2019 students, and it returns this summer on Sunday, July 24. Here are eight reasons why the fifth installment of #FEMBApalooza is not to be missed!
1. Expand your network and meet new people from across the Anderson family.
Twenty-nine years of FEMBAs will unite on campus for this ultimate reunion and networking event. Dickson Plaza will host what is expected to be the largest FEMBApalooza yet, with 900 – 1,000 attendees.
2. Learn about new entrepreneurial ventures by FEMBAs in the Opportunity Zone.
Support FEMBA entrepreneurs who will be on site talking about their companies and offering ways for other FEMBAs to get involved. So far we’ve confirmed Kathleen Hein (’18) of HappinessInk, Oscar Rodriguez (’14) and Hanson Chang (’14) of Reassure Analytics, EpicVisor founders Ed Cho (’13) and Eugene Kim (’11), and the Class of 2016 team behind Petsnap, Matthew Rose, Rex Hatch, Frankie Judy, Isadora Dantas, Rich Headly and Matt Bailey.
3. Work on your tan while hearing from faculty, alumni and current students at Learning on the Lawn.
Professors from a range of disciplines will be giving short lectures on a range of topics. This year’s speakers include: Margaret Shih, Senior Associate Dean; Gonzalo Freixes, Associate Dean; David Cooley, Director of Alumni Career Services; and Paul Brandano, Executive Director of Marketing for GAP. Stay tuned, we’ll announce the topics soon!
