As a team, we each self-reflected on why we chose to come to UCLA Anderson for our MBA. For some, it was a matter of advancing in our career through learning and networking with top professors and classmates at one of the most prestigious MBA programs. For others, it was to expand our horizon and gain new experiences. In the end, despite the different reasons for attending Anderson, what we all gained from this experience was an opportunity for self-discovery and growth. For all of us graduating this year, the answer was clear: Anderson helped us pursue our potential. Thus, the main goal of this commercial is to highlight this message.
