The Anderson Student Association

The Anderson Student Association (ASA) governs the UCLA Anderson student body to ensure a high quality of student life and to build relationships between students, faculty, alumni, and the business community. By virtue of enrollment, every Anderson student is a member of ASA and is eligible to participate in all sponsored events.

The key to what ASA can and does accomplish is, of course, the students. Through its executive branch and committee system, in conjunction with the Anderson student body, ASA provides an essential infrastructure which organizes, coordinates, and funds an ever increasing number of events and services designed to enrich the educational and extracurricular experiences at UCLA Anderson.

The mission statement of the ASA is to enrich the student MBA experience by providing:

  • Leadership that empowers and inspires
  • Advocacy on behalf of student's interests
  • Coordination of all student-run activities
