Global Partner Network

Global Partner Network

The UCLA Anderson Global Access Program (GAP) works with foreign organizations throughout the world to assist their technology companies in developing a global strategy. The partners are GAP-sponsoring organizations located abroad with the mission of enhancing their country's economic development and technological innovation. They select companies with a global mission that will benefit from participating in the program. They in turn achieve a direct benefit when a company from their country successfully enters a new foreign market. The Global Access Program offers these organizations access to the Fully-Employed MBA students at one of the premier business schools in the world.

Benefits For Partners

The immense benefits for the organizations participating in the UCLA Anderson Global Access Program (GAP) are as varied as the countries in which they are located. GAP partnerships offer third party organizations a way to expose the technology companies within their countries to MBA students and professors from the UCLA Anderson School of Management, one of the highest ranked business schools in the world. GAP partners include foreign governments, NGOs, investors and business services firms around the world who achieve recognizable benefit when tech companies globalize.

In addition to forming ties with students, the organizations develop strong bonds with the Anderson School faculty and administration as well as the other partners to create a truly global network.
