Arguably the first program of its kind in India and South Asia, this one-year program is focused on applied learning of advanced management concepts for senior executives and business owners. Its part-time, modular format provides great flexibility for busy professionals, while the UCLA faculty and industry leaders ensure that the program covers all aspects of best-in-class management education expected from a highly respected and globally renowned institution. UCLA PGPX will put you on the global leadership map, with a combination of strategies, skills, and acumen that will stretch your thinking, and hone your abilities as a leader and manager capable of achieving remarkable growth in your business.




After the completion of the program, you will attain the coveted UCLA Anderson alumni status and join a thriving global community of more than 40,000 and growing. UCLA Anderson alumni have made their mark in Asia, US, Latin America, European Union, Middle East and everywhere in between. They are ready to inspire as mentors, connect other alumni to professional opportunities, and share insights as industry experts.


PGPX is a comprehensive, rigorous, and challenging program covering all aspects of a general management curriculum, spread over one year.


Senior faculty members from the UCLA Anderson School of Management and well known industry experts from India and abroad, conduct the program in all locations in India and the UCLA Anderson Campus in USA.


UCLA PGPX attracts highly accomplished and talented senior executives and business owners from diverse functions across industries. Peer learning is a significant part of the experience and the resulting network of like-minded overachievers is very powerful for personal and professional growth.


The program design ensures that professionals with demanding schedules and a high level of responsibility can continue to work while completing the program requirements. A week of classroom learning is conducted almost every month in different formats, including classroom, live online sessions, and online learning.


Participants travel to the UCLA Anderson campus in Los Angeles, USA to complete the required modules in leadership, communications, negotiations, and the on-campus case-competition. All participants graduate from PGPX in a ceremony held at the UCLA Anderson campus on the last day of the program.
