The Anderson School of Management at UCLA

Anderson Program Overview
The Anderson School of Management at UCLA strongly believes that future business leaders need to be grounded in the fundamental skills, yet able to tackle unexpected challenges and take risks when needed. Their strategy is early immersion in a core curriculum, before challenging students to think flexibly in real world projects involving collaborative work with local corporations and the community.

The exuberant and busy Los Angeles area offers rich opportunities for students with business interests as diverse as finance, real estate, sports, entrepreneurship, and, of course, entertainment and media. UCLA Anderson counts these areas as its strengths, along with general management and marketing.

With just under 1,400 students — half of which are fulltime — UCLA Anderson is a sizable community. Though large, its highly social atmosphere of clubs, events and community organizations encourages students to build strong connections with each other. Because of associations like the Friends of the University of California, Anderson’s alumni network is particularly active with 24 clubs stretching across 10 countries.
