Note from the Directors

Over the last academic year, through academic, experiential, cultural and social programs and engagement opportunities, the center has continued to raise the student experience and ensure students are well-rounded global citizens. Partnerships, promotion of student-faculty collaboration and investment in global research and course development have further helped to strengthen the international reputation and footprint of UCLA and UCLA Anderson.

Enhancing programming and global immersion opportunities concentrated on the school's target regions of Asia and Latin America have provided memorable learning experiences, as well as tremendous engagement and networking opportunities. The annual Wilbur K. Woo China Conference brought together successful and influential investors and business leaders for discussions on cross-border investment, while the Latin American conference explored critical and social issues affecting the region. The center also hosted influential business leaders, world-renowned authors, economists and government officials to share insights on key emerging regions of the world.


Three new courses were introduced and became eligible for the specialization in global management. The GlobalImmersion Programs continued to increase in popularity. Students studied the economies, major industries, local cultures, key historical events and aspects of conducting business in Chile, Brazil. Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Israel, France, the Czech Republic and Hungary. In the Full-time MBA program, almost one third of students completed an international Applied Management Research (AMR) field study project. The CGM continued to support projects focused on social enterprise and community impact that broadened students' awareness of issues facing entrepreneurial development in emerging markets such as Cambodia, Cameroon, Chile, Ecuador, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Mongolia, Philippines, Tanzania and Uganda.

Several new initiatives also were introduced, Global forums brought together business, law and policy students for discussions on immigration reform and the legal, regulatory and business implications surrounding Bitcoin. The CGM supported "Innovation China 2013," a two-day conference in Shanghai focused on the emerging Chinese entrepreneurial market. A new partnership with the Los Angeles World Affairs Council provided opportunities for students to hear from high-profile speakers, including billionaire investor Elon Musk and Senator John McCain. This collaboration also delivered the inaugural Robertson Lecture Series in Global Business Leadership with General Stanley McChrystal, former U.S. Commander in Afghanistan. We launched a mentoring program that connects students with CGM board members for invaluable guidance and counsel.

It is exciting to see the scale and influence of the CGM, and a real delight to work with such engaged, intelligent, motivated students who share the desire to increase their understanding of global cultures and markets. The CGM looks forward to further advancing UCLA Anderson as a global thought leader.
