Dean's Message

The Ph.D. Program is one of the crown jewels of the UCLA Anderson School of Management.  We are training scholars from around the world to become the next generation of innovators and thought leaders in research, education and industry.

Our alumni include distinguished faculty at many of the world's great academic institutions.  Our graduates tell us that the UCLA Anderson Doctoral Program is second to none in terms of quality and accessibility of faculty, staff and alumni support, class and resource flexibility and its location in the intellectual and cultural hub of Los Angeles. 

If you have a passion for research and love to think, write, teach and debate, we hope you will consider applying to our program.
