The entire FEMBA family, along with the rest of the UCLA Anderson community, are encouraged to get acquainted with their current FEMBA classmates and FEMBA alumni through Drive Time, UCLA Anderson’s FEMBA podcast.
From TEDxUCLA speaker Isadora Dantas (FEMBA ’16) to Olympic Gold and Silver medalist Ed Moses (FEMBA ’16) to Peace Corps volunteer Victor Gebhardt (FEMBA ’18), who is in transit on the 10,000-mile Mongol Rally for charity, you’ll feel entertained by the journeys that led them to Anderson and edified by the lessons informing their direction now.
In recent episodes, FEMBA Class of 2016 commencement speaker Cara Bibbiani talked about the international experiences with Anderson’s Global Access Program that made her want to return as a GAP Fellow. PetSnap founder Matt Rose (FEMBA ’16) shared how he launched his pet health records platform with classmates and FEMBA Council President Katie Kroeger-Davis (FEMBA ’16) described her career transition. FEMBA Associate Dean Gonzalo Freixas chimed in with an account of his family’s arrival in the U.S. as political refugees.
Most recently, Professor Jeff Scheinrock shared three tips all new students can use and talked about The Agile Startup, the book he wrote with FEMBA alumnus Matt Richter-Sand (FEMBA ’10). And Senior Associate Dean Margaret Shih discussed how her international upbringing shaped her education and, ultimately, her passion for research in the areas of diversity, culture, stereotypes and decision-making.
