Global Economics and Management

The Global Economics and Management (GEM) area at UCLA Anderson School of Management has three major missions:

  • To conduct world-class research in economics, with an emphasis on issues of global relevance.
  • To teach management students to think creatively about the important international economic issues of our time.
  • To train the leading economists of tomorrow, through our world-class PhD program.

In all these activities, we emphasize the use of appropriate economic theory, the analysis of relevant data, and persuasive communication skills. To accomplish our missions, we rely on strong interactions with the Center for Global Management (CGM), the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), and the Anderson Forecast, all crucial assets that enhance the attractiveness of the GEM area as a place to pursue management studies, doctoral studies and an academic career.

The GEM academic area sustains an active research program led by its internationally renowned faculty, maintains a vibrant seminar on International Political Economy, conducts international study trips, participates in UCLA Anderson's Executive Education Programs, and organizes academic conferences, among many other activities.
