Going Global; Becoming Attuned
Sebastian Edwards

"There’s no way that you can be a successful business person in the 21st century if you don’t know the world."

Sebastian Edwards

Senior Associate Dean of Global Initiatives and Henry Ford II Chair in International Management, and Faculty Director for the Center for Global Management

To successfully complete their MBA, all UCLA Anderson students need to fulfill a global requirement through any of three channels or a combination:

(1) Participation in a Global Immersion course
(2) Completion of an international Applied Management Research field study project 
(3) Enrollment in one of our many global management elective courses

 

Global Immersion Courses

 

Concentrating on the school’s target regions of Asia and Latin America, courses focus on doing business in other countries to prepare students to be global leaders. These four-unit courses include classes at UCLA Anderson and one week immersion in-country for a blend of classroom lectures, guest speakers, panel discussions, company visits and cultural activities.

Applied Management Research

 

As the capstone experience of each and every Anderson MBA’s journey, students choose teams of peers to embark on a 20-week project in one of three directions. Each year a number of capstone project teams focus their efforts on advancing pro-social causes outside of the United States. Whether evaluating new models for microfinance, improving foreign supply chain efficiency or evaluating growth and expansion strategies, our global pro-social projects make a real, immediate and often profound impact.
