The Center for Global Management offers customized global management programs to professional MBA candidates at top business and management schools around the world. These programs are coordinated and hosted by UCLA Anderson, and are customized to satisfy the interests of the particular partner institution while also focusing on the strengths of UCLA Anderson and industries and sectors of California.
The programs, typically one week in duration, provide participants with the opportunity to learn from UCLA Anderson faculty about cutting-edge management issues and research, global challenges and business practices in the United States. Panel discussions, guest speakers, and site and cultural visits complement the academic curriculum. Sample courses include "New Product Development;" "The Business of California;" and "Global Leadership for Global Markets."

Launched in July 2009, Global Green Business Week for Young Leaders is a one week summer institute for talented high school students that addresses the fundamentals and current trends of sustainability and management, one of the five thematic areas of the UCLA CIBER grant, from a triple bottom line perspective.
The course is taught by UCLA professors, researchers, doctoral and graduate students, as well as practitioners who provide insight on the societal and economic factors that drive and define green business through a blend of classroom lectures, case studies, experiential exercises and panel discussions. 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 2013 program that took place in July featured topics on climate change, air and water quality, biodiversity and conservation, energy, corporate sustainability and environmental concerns.
