The Center for Global Management Mentoring Program connects accomplished MBA students with some of the Center's board members. The board is comprised of a dedicated and actively engaged group of visionary global leaders spanning a variety of geographies and industries who have invested in the center in recognition of UCLA Anderson's role in preparing the next generation of global leaders.
The CGM Mentoring Program provides students with a unique opportunity to connect and form meaningful relationships with board members who provide valuable counsel and guidance on professional endeavors, living and working abroad, global business and life lessons. Mentors also assist their mentees with academic, career guidance and personal development. The program has been established to augment the knowledge and understanding of those students who are interested in pursuing a career in international business and management, across a variety of industries and disciplines, as well as possibly living and working abroad upon graduation. Although mentors can provide guidance for career choices and serve as a sounding board for students as they make decisions about career choices, this is not a job placement program.
For those students interested in the program, please contact Lucy Allard who will share the profiles of possible mentors.
