Every fall, first-year MBAs take a one-week break from classes to visit energy companies and get to know the industry. EMG takes students to San Diego, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area for a full week of corporate presentations, visits to energy facilities and networking events.
Top business schools from all over the country send teams to UCLA Anderson in early February for the annual UCLA Challenges in Energy Case Competition. Teams are given the case prompt several weeks before the competition and then deliver their presentations to panels of judges. Winning teams earn both money and glory, and we wrap it up with a big happy hour and send-off.
The UCLA Anderson Energy Innovation Conference is an annual event that brings together professionals, students and academics with a passion for energy and showcases innovative technologies with the potential to reinvent the energy industry.
