Going Global; Becoming Attuned
Sebastian Edwards, Executive Director
Center for Global Management
To successfully complete their MBA, all UCLA Anderson students need to fulﬁll a global requirement through: (1) Participation in a Global Immersion Program; (2) completion of an international Applied Management Research ﬁeld study project; and/or (3) enrollment in one of our many global management elective courses.
Concentrated 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.
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 AMR teams focus their efforts of advancing pro-social causes outside of the United States. Whether evaluating new models for micro finance, improving foreign supply chain efficiency, or evaluating growth and expansion strategies, our global pro-social projects make a real, immediate and often profound impact.
Students are able to customize their academic preparation in the area of global management and business from a variety of course offerings ranging from global macro- economics to global healthcare, understanding the Asia Pacific economies to evolution in the global mobile industry.
