Change in UCLA M.B.A. program prompts privatization concerns

RP YUDOF DOORWAY.JPGConcerns over privatization regularly flare up as the University of California system attempts to grow with limited state support. It is happening again, as UCLA's nationally-recognized M.B.A. program moves to a self-supported funding model.

Outgoing University of California President Mark Yudof recently approved a proposal that would cut UCLA's prestigious Anderson School of Management full-time M.B.A program loose of state funds, UCLA announced Wednesday.

The University believes the newly-granted financial model would allow the school's M.B.A program to gain greater control over its funding and tuition levels, rather than relying on traditionally unstable state support.
