Celebrating 10 Years

In 2014, GEMBA for Asia Pacific students, faculty, staff and alumni from around the globe gathered to celebrate the program’s 10th anniversary.

UCLA Anderson's Global EMBA Program 10-year Anniversary

August 2014 marked the 10th anniversary of the UCLA-NUS Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) for Asia Pacific program — a 15-month, dual degree program in which graduates earn two MBAs, one from UCLA Anderson and another from the National University of Singapore Business School. The tenth graduating class included participants from 13 countries representing 20 nationalities. The program now boasts roughly 350 alumni worldwide, from more than 30 countries.

When UCLA Anderson Professor Christopher Tang founded the program, it was one of the first dual-degree programs offered by a business school, and the first degree program ever approved between a University of California and a foreign university. The UCLA-NUS GEMBA program is now among the world’s top executive MBA programs — most recently ranked number 3 by the Economist and number 4 by the Financial Times.

UCLA-NUS alumni, faculty, students and staff celebrated the program’s 10-year milestone with a private dinner on Friday, August 15, 2014, at the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica, followed by a global summit on Saturday, August 16, 2014, at UCLA Anderson. Welcome remarks were made John Mamer, senior associate dean of the program. The one-day conference included plenary sessions with established executives — including a number of GEMBA alumni — moderated by faculty who teach in the program. The discussions focused on: global technology, entertainment and media trends; cross-border finance and investment strategies for frontier markets; and global entrepreneurship and emerging markets.

The event was organized by the GEMBA for Asia Pacific program in conjunction with UCLA Anderson’s Center for Global Management. The summit concluded with a closing celebration at Yamashiro Hollywood, organized by GEMBA alumni. Commencement took place the following week, on Saturday, August 23, 2014, and featured a keynote address by Craig Ehrlich, chairman and co-founder of Novare Technologies and board chair of UCLA Anderson’s Center for Global Management.
