The average GMAT score of an admitted student is 670 with an average age of 37. The final round 3 deadline for Anderson occurs in May.
Anderson EMBA classes are characterized by one year of mandatory classes, followed by a second year of student-chosen courses that can have a specialization or join a concurrent degree program. Classes meet every other weekend throughout the academic year.

Anderson has identified four key competencies of emotional intelligence that the EMBA curriculum and Anderson opportunities aim to build: (1) self-awareness (2) social awareness (3) effective self-management skills, and (4) successfully building and maintaining relationships. To develop these skills, students take two courses on Leadership Foundations, use online-based tools and assessments, and attend an expert series of speakers that have included: Betsy McLaughlin, CEO of Hot Topic Inc.; Wes Bush, President of Northrop Grumman Corp.; and Richard Riordan, Former Mayor of Los Angeles.
