Who We Are



We Share
Success

Here, it’s not "me-over-them" or worse, "me-at-the-expense-of-them." At UCLA Anderson, it’s "How can we both win?"


We Think
Fearlessly

By marrying bold creativity with rigorous analytics, our students and alumni generate trailblazing business ideas.

We Drive
Change

Our people aren’t content until they make an impact. They lead in order to improve, advance and elevate their businesses and communities.
"Here, we provide the most dynamic environment for you to realize your potential. The UCLA Anderson community is diverse. It's vibrant. It allows students to explore a world of possibilities. Our focus on innovation and collaboration nurtures effective leaders, who are not afraid to drive change."

— Margaret Shih, Senior Associate Dean
