Global Programs for Visiting Students

  • Customized Global Management Programs
    • The Center for Global Management offers customizable global management programs to professional MBA candidates at top business and management schools around the world. These programs are coordinated and managed by the CGM and customized to satisfy the interests of the particular partner institution while also focusing on UCLA Anderson's strengths and California's industries and sectors. 

      The programs, typically one week in duration, provide participants with the opportunity to learn from UCLA Anderson faculty about cutting-edge management issues, research and global challenges and business practices in the United States. Panel discussions, guest speakers, and site and cultural visits complement the academic curriculum. MBA students serve as teaching assistants and apply and reinforce the learning they acquire in the core curriculum of the MBA program. Sample courses include "New Product Development," "The Business of California;" and "Global Leadership for Global Markets."

  • Global Green Business Week
    • Launched in July 2009, Global Green Business Week for Young Leaders is a one week summer institute for talented high school students that addresses, from a triple bottom line perspective, the fundamentals and current trends of sustainability and management, one of the five thematic areas of the UCLA CIBER grant (2010-2014).  

      The course is taught by UCLA faculty members, researchers, doctoral students and industry practitioners who provide insight on societal and economic factors that drive and define green business through a blend of classroom lectures, case studies, experiential exercises and panel discussions.

      Since 2009, this program has provided more than 235 high school students with the opportunity to learn perspectives from management, urban planning, public policy and environmental sciences. Each facet of the program is designed to challenge students to use innovation and critical reasoning to think about business in the 21st century. The 2014 program took place at UCLA Anderson in July and featured topics on climate change, air and water quality, biodiversity and conservation, energy, corporate sustainability and environmental economics. This year program participants came from all over the United States, and from Indonesia and India. Prior participants have included high school students from the U.S., Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Lebanon, Italy and Macedonia.

      The program carries two quarter units of UC credit.
