Letter from Elaine Hagan

written by Elaine Hagan


We hope you enjoyed this issue of Assets. This month, we welcome members of the Class of 2015 (and FEMBA 2016) to UCLA Anderson, as they embark on their MBA experience and prepare for the journey that lies ahead. Like the Anderson alumni before them, they are talented, passionate and engaging individuals who are excited to be at Anderson, whether they aspire toward careers in finance or consulting, marketing or entrepreneurial endeavors.

 Not only do we welcome new students at this time of year, we also welcome new alumni during Worldwide Welcome Week, September 23 - October 4, 2013, with events at more than 20 locations around the globe. Come join us!


As we look ahead to next Spring, we invite you to save the date for Alumni Weekend, May 1 - 5, 2014, which will feature our annual Alumni Conference, along with reunion giving campaigns and celebrations for the classes of '79, '84, '89, '94, '99, '04 and '09.


In between now and then, the Office of Alumni Relations will be working with hundreds of alumni around the globe who serve as volunteer leaders in coordinating events and services for the 35,000 members of the Anderson Alumni Network. We would like to thank each of these volunteers for their efforts.

It seems like just yesterday that I came to Los Angeles and UCLA Anderson. It has been a privilege to meet many of you over the years, and I look forward to reconnecting while I (try to) fill the shoes of Eric Mokover ('80), who retired in June, until we name a permanent successor in alumni relations.  Please let us know how you are doing. Send in a class note, update your address in the directory, and join our LinkedIn group. Most of all, continue to do the terrific job you do day in and day out as ambassadors of Anderson. Here's to a great school year!
