Corporate Partners Program
The Corporate Partners Program is an annual giving program that provides unrestricted funds ($10,000 and above) for the Dean to accomplish the school's highest priorities. These efforts include new curriculum initiatives, research projects, faculty recruitment and retention, technology advancements, fellowship support, and student activities including alumni and career services.

Corporate Fellowships

These funds support students who have demonstrated academic excellence and professional potential and who might otherwise find the cost of graduate management education prohibitive. Gifts of a minimum of $25,000 for an expendable fellowship or a minimum of $250,000 to establish an endowed fellowship will provide a competitive incentive in recruiting the best students to UCLA Anderson.
