Academic Centers

 

UCLA is world-renowned research institution, and UCLA Anderson consistently ranks in the top 5 for intellectual capital by Bloomberg Businessweek.

Our academics are strong because we focus on the most relevant areas of research through our academic centers. We also lead academically through Applied Management Research (AMR), our field studies program. We pioneered business school field studies in 1967 and have remained at the forefront of practical application since.
