● UCLA PGPX is designed especially for professionals and entrepreneurs with a busy work schedule, that does not permit them to pursue a full-time MBA program
● In a fast-paced environment, organizations cannot afford to grant long sabbaticals to senior executives to attend a full-time program. PGPX addresses this need by allowing participants to undergo a formal, part-time management program with minimal disruption of their work and personal pursuits.
● Its coverage of content is extensive and it covers all the advanced management concepts. As depicted, UCLA PGPX is tailored specifically for experienced professionals and is quite distinct from full-time and part-time MBA programs
