A Message from the Dean

At UCLA Anderson, we’re not content with how things are; instead, we look to the future to discover and chart what will be. We are a community defined by three core qualities.

  • »
    We share success: performance and innovation are not about winning at the expense of others. Success comes from creating the new direction of business — together.
  • »
    We think fearlessly: our faculty and students provoke new thinking and experimentation with bold ideas.
  • »
    We drive change: we’re impatient unless we can measure our efforts against tangible impact.

From our home in Los Angeles, the creative capital of the world, we’ll celebrate these qualities and build what’s next together.
