The Entrepreneur Association is among the largest student organizations at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, and offers its more than 600 members a wide range of extracurricular activities, from networking events to experiential learning opportunities. The EA works closely with the Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, which provides curriculum, mentoring relationships, research and educational programs that prepare MBA candidates for the challenges of management in entrepreneurial environments. The EA takes advantage of its vast resources to hold 100+ events per year, an average of more than three events per week. These include hands-on workshops, intimate networking events with successful entrepreneurs, a world-class business plan competition and a conference at the end of the year.
The EA's first event of the year is an enjoyable evening of networking aimed at exposing new members to all of the resources the EA has to offer, from its officers to its dozens of programs. The evening's highlights include a guest speaker discussing an entrepreneurial venture and the chance to meet successful entrepreneurs from a variety of industries.
